Report: Wilson Won’t Sign Contract Extension If Not Reached by Midnight Deadline

There’s been plenty of chatter regarding the contract extension for Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and the latest news about that extension isn’t very good.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Russell does not intend to sign a contract extension with the team this season if he does not reach an agreement by his self-imposed deadline of midnight tonight.

It will be a challenge to get a new deal done by that deadline, though the sides are trying as talks continue, sources told Schefter.

Wilson’s contract is up after this season. If a new contract is not agreed on, the Seahawks presumably will place their franchise tag on Wilson.

Wilson showed up Monday for the start of the Seahawks’ offseason program and is expected to continue to participate in all of the offseason activities and attend training camp.

As for suggestions that the Seahawks could trade Wilson if he does not sign a new deal, there are no obvious teams willing to surrender draft picks or pay Wilson what he is seeking, sources said.

In 2015, Wilson also set a deadline for an extension, but that wasn’t until the start of training camp, and the two sides agreed on a four-year, $87.6 million deal at the last minute. After that extension, Wilson said he would have tabled contract talks and played out the final year of his rookie contract had the two sides not met the deadline.

Seahawks Ink Former Browns DE Nate Orchard

The Seahawks signed defensive end Nate Orchard on Thursday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Orchard was a second-round pick out of Utah by the Browns in 2015 and has five sacks in 38 career games.

He was cut by the Browns prior to the 2018 season after having had a starring turn on Hard Knocks, and spent time on the rosters of both the Bills and Chiefs before being released by Kansas City in November.

Seahawks GM John Schneider Says Team Being “Selective” in Free Agency

The Seahawks may not have been overly active since the free agent signing period began three weeks ago.

But Seattle general manager John Schneider said Monday that doesn’t mean the team hasn’t been doing a lot of work behind the scenes. Instead, he said the relative inactivity — signing just two players from the outside — was part of a strategy to focus instead on re-signing some of its own key players as well as loading up on compensatory picks for the 2020 draft, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

“Just being able to be a little bit more selective in how we are approaching free agency,” Schneider said Monday in an interview on the Brock and Salk Show on ESPN 710 Seattle during which he also helped promote his annual fundraiser for Ben’s Fund, which raises money to assist families impacted by autism. The fund is named after the first son of Schneider and his wife, Traci. Ben Schneider was diagnosed as autistic shortly after he turned 3.

Schneider said the team was more active in free agency last year — when the Seahawks signed the likes of Ed Dickson, Barkevious Mingo, Tom Johnson, Shamar Stephen and Jaron Brown — to make up for players it had lost, such as Kam Chancellor, Jimmy Graham and Cliff Avril. That resulted in Seattle getting no compensatory picks for the 2019 draft and, when combined with trading away three picks, leaves Seattle currently with just four picks when the draft rolls around April 25-27.

But this year, Schneider said the goal during free agency was designed to keep the team’s current core intact and load up on picks for 2020 — Seattle has all of its seven original picks and at the moment would also be awarded four as compensation for the loss of free agents such as Earl Thomas, Justin Coleman and J.R. Sweezy.

QB Russell Wilson Gives the Seahawks Till April 15th to Get a Deal Done

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has given the team an April 15 deadline to complete negotiations on a new contract, a source with knowledge of the discussions told Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.

April 15 is the day the Seahawks will begin their official offseason workout program, and Wilson is thought to want the deal done by then. It’s also thought the two sides have had some negotiations in recent days with Wilson hoping to get the contract done quickly.

Wilson has one year remaining on his current four-year, $87.6 million contract, but it is typical for teams to sign key players to extensions before they enter the final year of their contracts.

Wilson signed his current deal July 31, 2015, the day training camp opened, with the two sides agreeing to the contract the night before. That fit the usual Seahawks timeline under general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll of getting significant extensions done in the late spring and summer.

This time, it’s thought that Wilson wants to get a deal done earlier so he can avoid the speculation and discussion about the negotiations that lingered throughout the 2015 offseason.

It’s unclear what happens if the two sides do not agree to a deal by April 15 and if that means there would be no further discussions in 2019 and Wilson would play out the season without a new deal, though that would seem like one reason for setting a deadline. It was widely reported in 2015 that Wilson’s camp wanted a contract done by the time training camp started so that Wilson would not have to deal with negotiations — and questions about his future — during the season.

Seahawks Ink Pro Bowl Kicker Jason Myers to Four-Year Deal

Pro Bowl kicker Jason Myers is coming back to Seattle, as reports say that the kicker has agreed to a four-year deal with the Seahawks on Wednesday.

The deal is expected to be worth $15 million to $16 million.

The 27-year-old played the first three years of his career for the Jaguars, before joining the New York Jets in 2018.

He made a career-high 91.7 percent of his field goal attempts in 16 games last season, making his first Pro Bowl. Myers also made a career-best 90.9 percent of his extra point attempts for the Jets.

Seahawks Ink Former First-Round Pick QB Paxton Lynch

The Seahawks are taking a flyer on former Broncos quarterback Paxton Lynch according to Sports Radio KJR in Seattle.

Lynch was a first-round megabust out of Memphis in 2016, struggling with both injuries and learning the playbook, before the Broncos finally admitted their mistake and cut him before the start of the 2018 season. He had numerous tryouts after being waived but remained out of football for the entire season.

The signing is a no-risk move for the Seahawks, who routinely have one of the worst backup QB situations in the league. Fortunately for Pete Carroll and company, franchise quarterback Russell Wilson has literally never missed a game in his entire NFL career.

Lynch is still only 24 years old and has a strong arm but he has never shown enough polish or durability to be even a marginal NFL quarterback. It seems unlikely that that will change in Seattle.
