Summary

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.

Latest News

Seahawks | Russell Wilson may not receive new deal (Thu Jul 30, 01:54 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is talking with the Seahawks about a contract extension, but the two sides may not reach an agreement before the start of training camp, according to sources. The two sides do not appear to be in agreement about the amount of money up front or the guaranteed money.

Our View: The two sides seem to be far apart at this time, but there's really no hurry. Wilson can get the franchise tag next offseason if no new deal is in place.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson's contract being negotiated (Mon Jul 27, 03:44 PM) - Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and his representatives have issues with the guaranteed money involved in his current offer. Still, Wilson hasn't turned the deal down yet. If both sides don't agree to a new deal soon, Wilson and the Seahawks will have to wait until after the season to try to get a deal done.

Our View: If things reach that point, expect the Seahawks to use the franchise tag on Wilson. They've built a Super Bowl contender with Wilson making peanuts. Now, they'll have to pay what he's worth. We can't imagine Wilson going to another team in the near future.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson offered a deal? (Sat Jul 25, 03:43 PM) - Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has supposedly been offered a contract extension that would pay him about $21 million per year. The deal would also include a significant amount of guaranteed money.

Our View: If the two sides can't reach a deal by the start of the regular season, there's a good chance that Seattle puts the franchise tag on Wilson. That would give the Seahawks until mid-July to work out a new long-term deal with their quarterback.

Seahawks | No progress on Russell Wilson deal? (Thu Jul 23, 09:27 PM) - Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner could agree to a long-term deal by the start of training camp, and the team's focus on Wagner's deal could be a sign of little progress with the negotiations for QB Russell Wilson, according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin.

Our View: We'll see if the Seahawks can get something done with Wilson, but the time will have to be right. There's no reason to predict this contract situation going either way. We'll know more about their desire to keep Wilson in the future.
