Wilson enters 2019 on the final year of an $87.6 million contract.
Russell Wilson gave the Seahawks a deadline of April 15th to complete negotiations for a new contract, according to the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta.
ProFootballTalk reports Wilson won't hold out and will be present for every workout, meeting and practice despite the deadline. According to ProFootballTalk, Wilson gave the deadline to the team in late January to prepare for the season with zero distractions.
Wilson enters 2019 on the final year of his four-year, $87.6 million deal signed in July 2015. Seattle and Wilson "have had some negotiations in recent days," per Condotta.
The NC State and Wisconsin product is currently the 12th-highest-paid quarterback in the NFL. He could play under the franchise tag in each of the next three seasons with a 2020 salary of just over $30 million under the tag.
Wilson has thrown 196 touchdowns in 112 games as Seattle's starter, going 75–36–1. He has not missed a start since entering the league in 2012.
