Listen: Russell Wilson gives deadline for Seahawks deal
"News from the world of football word out of Seattle. That Russell Wilson has given the Seahawks a deadline for a new deal. He's giving the Seahawks until April fifteenth. Although sources telling our Adam Schefter talks between the two sides are really not thought to be too far along ESPN insider, Chris Mortensen with our sage Steele. You do the math. Exactly thirteen days to meet. Russell Wilson's deadline. What are the chances that this thing gets done by his deadline chances are slim and could complicate some things, but remember April fifteenth started the offseason program phase threes OTA's, that's when you get on the field and start working. So listen deadlines make things happen and made his last contract that he's four years. Eighty seven million dollars in two thousand fifteen happened. Gatien counts twenty five million dollars against their cat. They'll have twenty million twelve million dollars cap space. So they'll have to get creative. And I think it'll take some time I would expect it gets done by the start of training camp or or certainly during that period there if it gets done by April fifteenth, and they're miracle workers. And the thing about is thinking about Aaron Rodgers contract ninety eight point seven million guaranteed and thirty three point five average. So I think Russell Wilson we will be shooting north of that regardless of what Rogers regardless of a deck Prescott gets when the Cowboys one hundred million dollar type of contract. You don't see going tracking on and mean, Russell Wilson. It's not going to hold out not play this season. I do not. Mentioned April fifteenth first day of the Seahawks off season"
