The prime of Russell Wilson's career may not be here just yet, but he may be about to establish his longevity as a top fantasy quarterback. Adding Jimmy Graham to the offense should be huge, but the potential development of Chris Matthews may be even greater to stack weapons on top of each other outside. Wilson will need to overcome the hesitation that plagued him as a passer last season, but that is more of a Seahawks concern than fantasy concern as his running ability reaped huge rewards last season.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson will be ready to play (Tue Jun 30, 02:58 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he will be ready to play this season whether he's making $25 million or $1.5 million. Wilson has expressed his desire to stay in Seattle and added that, when the time comes, he will let his play do the talking.

Our View: If he made $25 million annually, it would be $3 million per year higher than Aaron Rodgers. The quarterback market is about supply and demand--and there's not enough good QBs out there. It may seem outlandish to predict that price tag for Wilson, but the market could bear that out.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants to stay put? (Mon Jun 29, 12:00 AM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said the goal is to remain in Seattle for 'a really, really long time' when asked about his contract situation at the Russell Wilson Passing Academy Saturday, June 27.

Our View: The reports of "Wilson's outta here" have been quite overblown. Do things seem dire right now in contract negotiations? Yeah, a bit--but things change quickly in the NFL. The Seahawks found a franchise-caliber quarterback in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft, and they've been able to build a champion due to his small salary. Now, it's time to pay up...and we still think Seattle finds a way to keep him around with a new long-term contract.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants guaranteed money (Sat Jun 27, 05:49 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson wants a considerable portion of his next contract to be guaranteed.

Our View: We're still optimistic that something will be done, but keep monitoring this situation. The guaranteed money is considered the biggest stumbling block in Wilson's extension talks, as the league's funding rule requires all money of any future payments to be paid into escrow upon signing.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson looking for big deal (Fri Jun 26, 03:12 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is looking to become the highest-paid player in the league with his next contract, according to sources. Wilson's agent understands that any contract extension Wilson receives will be surpassed by another player in the future.

Our View: This contract situation seems dire at this time, and there's even some out there who think Wilson might move on in 2016. We're not going with that "bold" prediction as we have confidence that the two sides will be able to work something out. Finding a franchise quarterback is difficult, and teams will pay a premium price to keep a guy like Wilson on the roster. Seattle's been able to keep Wilson around on an inexpensive third-rounder's contract. Now, it's time to pay an appropriate price.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson ready to move on? (Tue Jun 23, 02:07 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, who is believed to be seeking a five-year deal worth more than $110 million, sounded as if he's ready to move on from the Seahawks if his contract situation isn't resolved. He's in the fourth and final year of his rookie contract that will pay him $2.99 million if he doesn't agree to a new deal. Seattle could place the franchise tag on Wilson next year, which would cost them more than $23 million for 2016.

Our View: Let's pump the brakes on this "ready to move on" talk. Yes, it's a possibility that Wilson is ready to move on....but it's more likely that he's just going through the negotiation process and things are slow right now. We'd be floored if Wilson was not re-upped by the Seahawks.
