Seahawks QB Wilson reportdly expects franchise tag
| 2 weeks ago

Quarterback Russell Wilson hopes to receive a contract extension from the Seattle Seahawks before his current deal ends at the end of next season, but according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Wilson expects the Seahawks will put the franchise tag on him.

Wilson has a 2019 salary cap number of $25.286 million, so it will cost the Seahawks $30.34 million to keep him for another season after the expiration of his current deal.

"Expectations can change in the NFL overnight; if the Seahawks are good next year and Wilson has an MVP-caliber season and they go to the playoffs after stripping down and breaking apart the Legion of Boom (defense), it might be hard to do anything other than pay Wilson like a franchise quarterback," according to Florio.

If Wilson was tagged a second time, it would cost the Seahawks a minimum of $36.41 million, and that number would increase to about $52.43 million for a third season, which simply will not happen.
