Tyrann Mathieu thinks Russell Wilson 'wants New York'

Wilson had previously given the Seattle Seahawks until April 15th to finish negotiations on a contract extension, according to reports.

The Russell Wilson contract situation has evolved into the next chapter. Others have stated that he wants percentages of future National Football League salary cap increases that could up his salary during an extension.

While the world waited on word on Wilson, the Seahawks did make a few moves, with restricted free agents George Fant and Quinton Jefferson officially signing their tenders, and nine exclusive rights free agents also signing their tenders.

The ultimatum stated that he would not negotiate in that regard for the rest of the National Football League season.

If Wilson doesn't get the extension he desires, he will still attend all training camps and activities and will play during the 2019 season.

Regardless of whether he has a new contract or no, it had been expected all along that Wilson will fulfill all of his regular requirements, including the offseason training program, which began Monday and is technically voluntary.

NY in this instance certainly means the Giants.

And he did just that, as the Seahawks made clear in one of a series of photos released on their official website,

A trade involving Wilson might lose the Seahawks a lot of fans, especially with how hard it is to land an elite quarterback in the NFL.

That response glosses over the more fundamental question of whether Wilson would like for the Seahawks to let him get away.

Even if the deadline isn't met, it's still possible for the Seahawks to extend Wilson.

If that doesn't work, the Seahawks still have the chance to offer him a new contract after the 2019 National Football League season.

Specifics of the new deal likely won't be available until the morning, but for now, Seahawks fans can rest easy knowing Seattle locked up their favorite quarterback for years to come.
