Just curious...If the Seahawks wanted to, they couldn't even increase a bonus to him?

Tell his agent to sign a contract with NFL network. Prob the smartest guy I've heard on the network so far.

and he deserves it. football is a violent sport. there's no way a starting QB should be making 300,000 or whatever he's making


I know what you meant, but I sort of laughed at what you said. It's funny that being paid $300,000 is considered basically nothing when you are playing a damn game. However, I understand what you meant... he's not making much compared to most other quarterbacks in the league.

Anyway, like others have said... the rules state that he can't receive a raise yet. Wilson's agent or whoever is advising him should know this.

Should have worn high heels to the combine if he wanted to be paid like a first rounder. If he keeps producing he'll get his paycheque, I'm sure the Seahawks will find a way to keep him happy in the meantime.

Is this coming from Wilson through a rep or just the rep? I hope it isnt from Wilson

Conspiracy theory here but it might of been made up Russell Wilson never talked to his agent about this and they know they can't do anything for 3 seasons.

I would laugh and hang up the phone. Russell Wilson can't get a raise until season 3


The problem with that approach is it could turn Wilson against the team, which would make eventually resigning him dicey-- why not due what the D-rays do in MLB offer him a long term mid range QB contract- its a massive raise but it locks him up long term and since NFL contracts aren't guaranteed you can drop him if it doesn't work out.
