Seahawks GM explains mindset in Russell Wilson negotiations


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Seahawks general manager John Schneider has expressed caution in regard to the slow pace of contract negotiations with quarterback Russell Wilson.

"Every negotiation is unique in and of itself and this is no different," Schneider told radio station KIRO. "He's our quarterback. We'd love him to be our quarterback. But the thing is we need to keep as many players together as we possibly can. What I can tell you is that this is the ultimate team sport. We have a track record of rewarding our players that we recognize as core players."

Schneider added that the Seahawks need to "make smart decisions" in working to maintain their winning ways for a long time.

Wilson is under contract through 2015, but is considered underpaid in relation to other top-level players at his position. He not only led the team to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, but he is coming off a season in which he threw for 20 touchdowns and just seven interceptions.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been in talks to land a contract extension this offseason, and while a large portion of the deal will be guaranteed, the quarterback will not receive a fully-guaranteed contract, NFL.com reports.

CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported on March 21 that Wilson and the Seahawks were not close to an agreement. La Canfora also said during the NFL combine that it's possible Wilson plays out his rookie deal with the team. He has a cap hit a little less than $1.7 million in the last year of his rookie contract.


Seahawks not close to a deal with QB Russell Wilson


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Although there are reports to the contrary, the Seahawks are not close to a new deal with quarterback Russell Wilson, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Wilson, a third-round selection in 2012, is entering the last year of his rookie contract with the Seahawks. La Canfora wrote during the NFL combine that it could be possible that Wilson plays out his rookie contract.

The 26-year-old has accumulated 9,950 yards passing with 72 touchdowns and 26 interceptions in three seasons played. His 849 yards rushing last season led all quarterbacks.


Seahawks GM: 'No timeline' on Russell Wilson's contract extension


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Seahawks general manager John Schneider told reporters during Thursday's combine press conference that there is "no timeline" on Russell Wilson's contract extension, per the Palm Beach Post.

"I've talked to his people, and they know where we're at," Schneider said.

Schneider also indicated last week that he's expecting to find a way to keep his top quarterback on the roster long-term and he is not afraid to do so unconventionally. Wilson, who has one year left on his rookie contract, has led Seattle to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances. Wilson registered 3,475 passing yards, with 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2014. He also ran for 849 yards and six touchdowns.


Seahawks GM thinking outside the box to re-sign Russell Wilson


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Seahawks general manager John Schneider said Tuesday he is expecting to find a way to keep quarterback Russell Wilson on the team long term and he is not afraid to do so unconventionally.

"I think Russell Wilson wants to win championships," Schneider said. "Being a championship caliber team means thinking outside the box a lot of times and we're going to do that with Russell. He knows there are certain dominoes that have to fall in place."

Wilson has one year remaining on his rookie contract and has led Seattle to the Super Bowl two consecutive seasons.

"I've talked to his agent now, much like several of our other free agents. He knows, he gets it," Schneider said. "He wants to win and win for a long time. We're going to do what's best for this organization and that doesn't mean you just do what everybody else around the league has already done."


Russell Wilson: 'I obviously want to play in Seattle forever'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/3/2015) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is poised to receive a huge contract extension as he enters the final year of his rookie deal. Before leaving for the offseason, he told reporters he wasn't thinking about his contract during his team's run to the Super Bowl.

"To be honest with you, I haven’t really thought anything about it," he said, per the Seattle Times. "You know, I obviously want to play in Seattle forever. That’s my goal, and I want to be with this organization. I love this organization. I love this city. I love these fans, and I love winning here. We’ve won a lot of football games here, and that’s the goal, you know.

"Every year I step on the field, every time I go out those doors back there, the goal is to have a winning day and the goal is to have a winning practice with great teammates around me. So, I think that’s where my focus is, is just continue to find ways to win, and hopefully it’s here in Seattle forever. But still -- I’m still thinking I’ve got a game on Sunday. That’s what I’m still feeling like.”


Report: Seahawks' Russell Wilson to go to spring training


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2015) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson plans to go to spring training with the Rangers again this year, according to a report from Fox Sports Southwest

Wilson was drafted, but not signed, by the Orioles in 2007, coming out of high school. At NC State, he was drafted by the Rockies in 2010 and played two seasons of Class-A minor league ball. 

Wilson played second base and hit .229 with 5 HR and 29 RBI in 94 games for the Tri-City Dust Devils and Asheville Tourists. 

The Rangers selected Wilson in the 2013 Rule V draft, and he attended one day of 2014 spring training. 

The Rangers' spring camp opens on Feb. 20. It's unknown when Wilson will arrive or how long he'll stay. 


Seahawks' Russell Wilson throws game-ending interception


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2015) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson turned in a solid game until his final attempt.

Wilson completed 12 of 21 passes for 247 passes and two scores. While he didn't complete his first pass until the second quarter, Wilson made up for that with his deep attempts. He averaged 11.8 yards per completion during the contest. Wilson nearly brought the Seahawks back with the game on the line. After leading the team down to the one yard line, Wilson threw an interception to Malcolm Butler to end the threat. Wilson also had 39 rushing yards.


Seahawks GM: Russell Wilson's contract to present roster challenge


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) The Seahawks are preparing to re-sign quarterback Russell Wilson. With Wilson making under $1 million per year in his first three seasons, Seattle has been able to give other players contract extensions. Now, general manager John Schneider knows it will be tough on the team to get Wilson at the hefty price tag.

"It presents challenges, there is no question," Schneider said. "We haven’t sat down with his representatives. We are still going to be drafting young players and playing young players, so we might not be able to dip into free agency like you may want to here and there or compensate somebody else that you want to compensate that is already on your team, but just the fact that we’re going to continue to keep drafted players and playing young players should help us compensate for whatever level of compensation (for Wilson’s contract) is."

Wilson threw for 3,475 yards in 2014 with 20 touchdown passes and seven interceptions. He also ran for 849 yards and six touchdowns.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

However, when the game reached overtime, Wilson connected on two different plays for 35 yards each, including the game-winning touchdown to Jermaine Kearse to send Seattle to the Super Bowl.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tossed three touchdowns in Saturday's win against the Panthers.

Wilson completed 15 of 22 passes for 268 yards and three scores. He was able to pull off a number of big plays, averaging 12.2 yards per completion. Wilson did have seven rushing attempts, but was mostly held in check on the ground, picking up 22 yards. 

Jermaine Kearse played a big role in Wilson's performance. Kearse was able to get open deep a number of times against the Carolina secondary. He had two gains of 33 yards and picked up a 63 yard touchdown. Wilson made sure to spread the love, tossing his other touchdowns to Luke Willson and Doug Baldwin.

Wilson will take on the winner of the Packers/Cowboys game in the NFC Championship.


Report: Eagles to interview Seattle's Scott Fitterer for GM position


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) The Eagles are expected to interview Seahawks director of college scouting Scott Fitterer for the general manager position this week, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Fitterer was an area scout for the team before he was promoted to director of college scouting in 2010. In his first four drafts, the Seahawks have selected 13 starters, including free safety Earl Thomas (first round, 2010), cornerback Richard Sherman (fifth round, 2011) and quarterback Russell Wilson (third round, 2012).


Seahawks' Russell Wilson doesn't do much Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had a rough game Week 17 against the Rams.

Wilson completed 17 of 25 passes for 239 yards. He did not throw any touchdowns, but did toss one interception during the contest. Wilson was under constant pressure, taking three sacks. He was often forced to throw the ball away when he was able to elude the pass rush. When he did have time, Wilson was able to hit on some big plays. He averaged 9.6 yards per completion. Wilson had six carries, but gained just 7 rushing yards. He also fumbled twice, though the Seahawks managed to recover both balls.

Wilson had a solid third season, setting career-highs in both passing and rushing yards. While he saw his passing touchdowns fall from 26 to 20, Wilson made up for that with a career-high six rushing scores. 


Russell Wilson could be in for strong finish


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2014) With the Cardinals struggling to get anything going offensively behind third-string quarterback Ryan Lindley, the Seahawks offense got repeated opportunities to shine Week 16 in Arizona. And quarterback Russell Wilson took advantage, throwing for a season-high 339 yards while rushing for 88. For the second time in three games, he contributed three total touchdowns, two in the air and one on the ground.

The Seahawks have gotten back to winning with their defense in recent weeks, making Wilson at times an afterthought. But when pressed to make plays, he's shown he's still capable of putting up big numbers.

Chances are he'll need to make plays in Week 17 against a Rams team that has played well of late, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Wilson's previous season high in passing yards came in his first meeting with them back in Week 7, when he threw for 313 and ran for 106. Despite his up-and-down tendencies, you'll want him active for the season's final week.


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson picks up three scores Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson turned in a fantastic start Week 16 against the Cardinals.

Wilson completed 20 of 31 passes for 339 yards and two scores. Despite playing one of the tougher defenses in the NFL, Wilson did not turn the ball over during the contest. He had a mostly clear pocket, or at least was able to escape when things got muddy, taking just one sack. When Wilson did have time, he was able to hit on big play, averaging 10.9 yards per completion. 

On top of that, Wilson turned in a fine game on the ground. An early 55 yard run started things off, but a late 5 yard scramble really put the nail in the coffin. Wilson stiff-armed a defender on his way to the end zone.

Wilson will take on the Rams Week 17.


Seahawks' Russell Wilson throws for one score Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw for one touchdown Week 15 against the 49ers.

Wilson completed 12 of 24 passes for 168 yards and a score during the contest. It wound up being a fairly tame game for Wilson, as the San Francisco defense was able to put pressure on him most of the day. Wilson wound up taking five sacks, and turned the ball over on an interception. He wasn't as much of a threat on the ground, either, gaining just 27 rushing yards.

Wilson will hope for more Week 16 against the Cardinals.


Seahawks' Russell Wilson picks up three scores Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson picked up three scores Week 14 against the Eagles.

Wilson completed 22 of 37 passes for 263 yards and two passing touchdowns. He did not turn the ball over during the contest. Wilson was able to use his escapability in the pocket to extend some plays. While he was sacked twice, he also managed to break free and find receivers often. Wilson averaged 7.1 yards per attempt. As usual, he was also a threat in the running game. Wilson ran the ball 10 times for 48 yards. He was able to break free on a 26 yard touchdown run in the second quarter, tying the game up. 

Wilson will look for more Week 15 against the 49ers. 


Russell Wilson may be forced to pass more


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) If you have yet to put your faith back in Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson with his recent turnaround -- he has averaged 21.7 Fantasy points over his last three games, according to standard CBSSports.com scoring -- his matchup Week 14 at Philadelphia might be that last little push you need.

The Eagles rank 26th against the pass, giving up 258.6 yards per game, and have allowed the fourth-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Their opponents are pretty much forced to pass against them just to keep from falling too far behind. The Eagles are averaging 31.3 points per game, fourth-most in the league, and have been even more productive with Mark Sanchez under center, averaging 34.4 in their last five.

Of course, they haven't had to face the Seahawks during that stretch, who are back to being a dominant defensive team. If their defense steps up against a strong offense, Wilson may not be needed for big numbers, which is always the risk for him.

But based on how his last few weeks have gone and how much better the Eagles are offensively than the Seahawks' last few opponents, more likely than not, Wilson has good things in store. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him among their top 10 quarterbacks for this week.


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson throws one TD in win vs. 49ers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson completed 15 of his 22 pass attempts for 236 yards with one touchdowns and no interceptions Thursday, adding 35 rushing yards on seven carries in his team's 19-3 win over the 49ers in Week 13.

Wilson was able to hit running back Robert Turbin for a 13-yard touchdown late in the first quarter and spent much of the rest of the day serving as a caretaker for the offense with the running game working and the defense putting together a dominant performance. Even so, Wilson was able to put up his highest passing yardage in his last six games. The Seahawks have a trip to Philadelphia on tap in Week 14.


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson piles up 73 rushing yards in Week 12


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson completed 17 of his 22 pass attempts for 211 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions while racking up a team-high 73 rushing yards on 10 carries in Seattle's 19-3 win over Arizona in Week 12.

Wilson has been a little uneven in the passing game lately, completing less than 50 percent of his attempts in Week 9 and less than 60 percent in Week 10, but played exceedingly well against a very good Arizona defense Sunday, posting a season-high 77.3 completion percentage while rushing for at least 70 yards for his third straight game. His touchdown came after the Seahawks put four field goals on the board, connecting with Cooper Helfet on a 20-yard score in the third quarter. He'll look to keep rolling when the Seahawks head to San Francisco Thursday.


Seahawks QB Russell Wilson tosses two scores Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw two touchdowns Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Wilson completed 20 of 32 passes for 178 yards and two scores. He did not turn the ball over during the contest. Wilson didn't have much going in the passing game, and was mostly limited to short passes. He averaged just 5.6 yards per completion. He was, once again, a strong presence in the run game. Wilson gained 71 yards on eight rushes. He finished second in the team in rushing, behind Marshawn Lynch.

Wilson will look for more Week 12 against the Cardinals. 


Russell Wilson can still get it done


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson still doesn't have much help in the passing game, but he continues to make things happen with his legs, and he did so again in a Week 11 loss to the Chiefs.

Wilson racked up 26 Fantasy points Sunday, and it was the 71 rushing yards that put him over 20 for the first time since Week 7. He passed for just 178 yards on 32 attempts otherwise, though did toss a pair of scores, his first since Week 8.

Wilson has at least 18 Fantasy points in two of his last four games, a good sign of how difficult things have been for him. When he rushes the ball well, Wilson's Fantasy upside is still pretty high, as he showed by picking up 16 of his Fantasy points on the ground last week. However, if he can't get going in that aspect of the game, he's awfully tough to rely on, given how few weapons the team has around him.

If Wilson is your top option at quarterback down the stretch, you probably aren't feeling great about your chances right now. However, his upside is great enough that you can still use him in the right matchups.
