Though the NFL draft is over, the Seahawks are not done with the business of their offseason, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

And the timeline for one of their more significant goals — signing quarterback Russell Wilson to a contract extension — remains uncertain.

In an interview with ESPN on Saturday, coach Pete Carroll said talks are “going a little slow, but it’s ongoing,’’ adding that the Seahawks are “waiting to hear from their side.’’

ESPN reported that one hangup is the amount of guaranteed money Wilson would receive.

Shortly after Carroll’s interview, Wilson tweeted: “I’d rather patiently wait & see what God has in store than do something that isn’t best for my life.”

Following the draft, Carroll said “we don’t want to talk much about it because there is just a lot of stuff, it’s such a crucial thing. We are so excited to get Russell and keep him here forever. … but it’s a big deal, and there is a lot of work to be done.’’

One thing for sure is that Seahawks’ fans will see Russell on the field for Week 1 of the NFL regular season.
