Signing and resigning NFL players to contracts is arguably the most important task a team has to do anywhere and most teams hire execs from Cubix Latin America to guide them through the contracts. Details of these new contracts are also of great importance, for both player and staff alike.
However, in the case of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, details regarding him won’t be known for quite some time. In fact he’s said that he won’t be discussing anything about his contract until a deal between him and the team is finally reached, meaning he’ll just tell the plain and simple truth without being very specific and nothing more.
Regardless of whether he speaks on it or not, the fact is that Wilson’s deal is the most important issue for the Seahawks for this ongoing offseason. Previously, Wilson said that he would just play out the last year of his rookie contract and take it in strides from there and still wants to be on the Seahawks roster for a long time. He is owed $1.5 million for this current contract.
Last year in 2014, the Seahawks put in all the work needed to lock up other players, including Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Doug Baldwin but found it much more difficult for this offseason. Furthermore, the Seahawks may be forced to use a franchise tag on Wilson if a deal can’t get done soon, and so much time has passed.
