Tuesday is the one day this week the media has access to the Seahawks. It’s hard to tell a lot from one 90-minute practice session, but there are a couple of interesting things involving Wilson.
We are hoping he will speak to reporters after practice regarding his new contract. Quarterback Cam Newton is close to signing a new deal worth $100 million over five years, so what can Russell expect?
“These deals can be misleading, so a lot depends on how much is guaranteed money. But it likely means the cost for the Seahawks just went up on Wilson’s asking price of more than $100 million. That figure now not only is legitimate, but highly likely.” (bleacher report)
Wilson isn’t going to say a lot about his contract negotiations, but he’ll hear plenty of questions about it Tuesday, and whatever he says, will be interesting.
