Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson does not intend to sign a contract extension to the team at this time if he fails to reach an agreement through his self-imposed deadline midday Monday, the sources are said ESPN's Adam Schefter.
It will be a challenge to get a new deal made by that deadline, though the parties are trying as conversations continue, Schefter sources say.
Wilson's contract is due after this time. If a new contract does not agree, the Seahawks may have placed their franchise tag on Wilson.
Wilson expects to participate in all seahawks offseason activities and attend training camp.
As suggestions that the Seahawks could trade Wilson if he did not sign a new deal, there were no obvious teams willing to surrender draft picks or pay Wilson what he was looking for.
His last deal with him was the second-highest paid quarterback of the NFL, behind Aaron Rodgers & # 39; $ 22 million each season. Wilson dropped to 12th in terms of annual average wages in quarterbacks, and believed he wanted his next contract to last longer than his last.
Rodgers was behind the quarterback pay scale after signing an extension last year with a modest $ 33.5 million.
