The Seahawks are officially Russell Wilson’s franchise now
In somewhat surprising news, Russell Wilson has given the Seahawks an April 15 deadline to get contract extension done that would pay him in line with the other top NFL QB’s. The power move not only signals a departure from Wilson’s ‘aw shucks’ persona, and also demonstrates that the franchise is his now, not Pete Carroll’s.
Wilson has all the leverage in the situation, because clearly Seattle doesn’t want to let him walk. He was initially a key piece to Pete Carroll’s franchise rebuilding puzzle, but this move makes it clear that it’s not just his team anymore, it’s his franchise.
