Russell Wilson contract: What happens with no new contract from Seattle Seahawks?

Russell Wilson contract: What happens with no new contract from Seattle Seahawks?

Prior to the announcement, Wilson was set to earn $17 million in base salary this year, which is the last year of a 4-year extension his signed in 2015. The Seattle Seahawks did not cave to the demands of the Super Bowl-winning quarterback and there is no contract extension in place.

Throwing more fuel on that fire, one of Wilson's National Football League peers, Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu seems to believe that Wilson "wants NY".

Instead of waiting for Seattle to run the course with Wilson, several quarterback teams should call up John Schneider and see what it would take to get Wilson from the Seahawks.

And he did just that, as the Seahawks made clear in one of a series of photos released on their official website, Seahawks.com.

Wilson, 30, is entering the final year of his four-year, $87.6 million deal. Clark did not attend voluntary sessions last year, either, raising the expectation that he also won't be around this year until his future is settled, or mandatory camps begin. Meeting his demands might get Wilson and his agent back to the table after the deadline.

For instance, when Wilson signed his most recent deal he was the second-highest paid player in the National Football League at $21.9 million per year behind only Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers.

Without disclosing the terms, Wilson shared the news in the form of a video with wife, Ciara.

The Russell Wilson contract situation has evolved into the next chapter.

Wilson said recently that his next contract could make him the NFL's highest-paid player. And, yes, under the right financial circumstances, Wilson will sign what would be a third contract in Seattle. But Tom Peliserro of the NFL Network reported that Moore will sign his contract Tuesday.
