Seattle Seahawks Rumors: Russell Wilson Contract Status Discussed By Pro Bowl QB

Seattle Seahawks rumors about the Russell Wilson contract status have come up again. The Seahawks’ star quarterback has been down in Arizona to take part in spring training with the Texas Rangers, and he was asked a lot of questions about a possible contract extension. A report from the Herald of Everett relayed a lot of quotes he gave to the media on hand. Included were statements about what he hopes to see happen during the NFL offseason.

“In terms of my contract, I don’t really talk about that kind of stuff. I love the game of football. I love playing the game of football. I try to put my best foot forward and I want to be the best to ever play the game. That’s the way I look at it.

I’ve been fortunate enough to win a lot of games at such a young age and to be able to play with some great guys and have some great comeback wins and win a Super Bowl, and go to back to back Super Bowls. It’s been special. So that’s what I focus on.”

There have been numerous Seattle Seahawks rumors about what the team might offer Russell Wilson in a contract extension and just how much money he is worth being paid. It isn’t lost on fans of the Seahawks that he has taken the team to the Super Bowl in each of the past two NFL seasons, and that he might have an even better team surrounding him for 2015.

As previously reported on the Inquisitr, the Seahawks traded for All Pro tight end Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints. Though the team had to give up center Max Unger and a first-round pick to make the deal happen, it should give Wilson a big target over the middle. An article in the Seattle Times following the announcement of that deal revealed that the Seahawks had become 5-to-1 favorites to win Super Bowl 50. The game will be played on the home field of the San Francisco 49ers, something that could make a victory very sweet for Seahawks fans.

Regarding the news that Russell Wilson has weighed in on the status of his next contract, it isn’t a negative thing that the team hasn’t given him an extension yet. The front office could have a plan in place to finish its offseason moves before extending an offer to Wilson, which could then be huge news before the 2015 NFL Draft. It means there will be more Seattle Seahawks rumors about the contract and it will continue to keep the NFL analysts interested in discussing the topic.
