Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson does not intend to sign up for a contract this season.
Schefter. It wants to be done, but the sides are trying to do it.
Wilson's contract is up after this season. The Seahawks presumably wants to place their franchise day on Wilson.
Wilson is expected to participate in all of the Seahawks' offseason activities and attend training camp.
Wilson says he is seeking, sources said.
In 2015, Wilson set a deadline for an extension, but that's not the start of training camp, and the two sides agreed on a four-year, $ 87.6 million deal at the last minute. After that extension, Wilson said he'd have contracted and played out the final year of his rookie contract.
His last deal made him the NFL's second-highest-paid quarterback, hitting Aaron Rodgers' $ 22 million a season. Wilson has been falling to 12th in terms of annual average salary among quarterbacks, and is willing to pay more than his last one.
Rodgers is back at the quarterback pay scale after signing an extension last year that averages $ 33.5 million.
