The Seahawks could wait to see how their season ends before deciding whether to extend Russell Wilson's contract this offseason, according to ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio.

Per a league source, the team’s willingness to give Wilson a new deal will depend in large part on how the current season turns out.  Miss the playoffs or get eliminated early, and the Seahawks will be inclined to wait.  Return to the Super Bowl, and a new deal becomes more likely. 

Wilson has started every game for the Seahawks since being taken in the third round of the 2012 draft. His regular season record as a starter is 31-12, and 4-1 in the playoffs.

After Seattle's Super Bowl victory last season, the team extended the contracts of cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Earl Thomas.

Wilson will be eligible for an extension for the first time this offseason, though his contract does not expire until after next season.
