Russell Wilson and the Seahawks have agreed to a 4-year, $87.6-million extension, per source.

The new Wilson deal includes a $31-million signing bonus, with approximately $60-million guaranteed.

He's making pennies under the 22M a year Rodgers signed for. It's about 1M more than I would've liked, but it is certainly a reasonable contract. The guaranteed numbers are high, but the non-signing bonus money isn't truly guaranteed if I had to guess. Probably more along the lines of guaranteed at the start of each season

Sounds like than hang ups were the years (Wilson wanted 4, Seattle wanted 5) and guaranteed money.

Hurray. Glad it's finally done.

Any idea how much they have left for Wagner?

Seems like seattle budged on both and Wilson's camp came down on the total amount per year

Can't keep everyone


He just posted this, it's going to be interesting with him and Kam but at least they have the franchise tag free to use now.

It's not a good sign, that's for sure.

basically, with Wilson taking a 30m signing bonus the hit we'll have against the cap is too big to extend Wagner this offseason

We can sign him next offseason or late in the year like we did with Wright and Avril. But not as nice as the option to sign him this summer

Yep. So couple of things...

1) You guys might wanna brace yourselves for the "Thanks Joe Flacco" treatment from everyone after this. Meaning that since RW got his contract anyone who can't sign with Seattle is automatically his fault.

2) What's the situation going to look like with Kam? Obviously since he's holding out he wants his contract now before Wagner. Is there any news on when/if that is going to happen (absolutely ridiculous that it's even coming to this since he JUST signed his megadeal in 2013).

3) Will the Seahawks just tag Wagner and tell him that they'll work on his deal this season or into the next offseason as priority #1?
