Seattle Seahawks' quarterback Russell Wilson does not intend to sign a contract extension with the team this season if he fails to reach an agreement by midnight on Monday at his self-imposed deadline, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
It will happen sources, said Schefter,
Wilson's contract is closed after this season. If a new contract is not agreed, the Seahawks will probably put their franchise tag on Wilson.
Wilson is expected to participate in all Seahawks off-season activities and attend a training camp.
Regarding the suggestions that the Seahawks Wilson could act if he does not sign a new deal, there are no obvious teams willing to give up draft elections or pay Wilson what he's looking for, sources said.
His latest deal made him the second-best-paid NFL quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers, $ 22 million a season. Wilson has now dropped to 12th in terms of the average annual salary of quarterbacks, and it is believed his next contract will last longer than his last.
Rodgers returns to the quarterback pay scale following an extension last year, averaging $ 33.5 million.
