Today is April 15th, 2019 and still Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has still not signed an extension to stay with the team.
For the past year Wilson has not acted the same once he came into the NFL. He was the perfect player or “Golden Boy” for any franchise. He wouldn’t say one bad thing about his teammates or coaches to the press.
Now its different he acted more demanding for his contract even though he will not say it publicly. Wilson and his team did tell the Seahawks front office we wants an extension by the 15th of April, if not he will leave.
Before I never would have thought he would consider leaving because he is the “Golden Boy.” He was going to stay in Seattle forever and retire a Seahawk.
That is not the case any more. I believe Wilson feels disrespected by the Seahawks because he knows other teams have already extended their franchise quartebacks before the last year of their deal.
Matt Ryan, Matthew Stafford, and Aaron Rodgers did not wait as long for any extension. They all signed their extension with about 3 to 2 years left on their contracts.
Rumors have came out that he wants out of Seattle and that he wants to be in New York. No one knows if the Giants or Jets, but I do think it is the Giants because they do not have a quarterback.
Also, Kansas City Chief saftey Tyrann Mahieu said that Wilson does want out and that he wants New York on Twitter. How does he know that I don’t know but the more people are talking about it, more likely it is true.
This rumor started when Collin Cowherd said it on his radio show “The Herd” that Wilson should want to go to New York because he can make more money, his wife loves New York for work and life-style.
