Seattle Seahawks Rumors: Russell Wilson prepares to play without a new contract?

One of the storylines in the NFL is about quarterback Russell Wilson’s contract extension which negotiation is underway. Despite the current differences between the Seahawks and Wilson in the contract talks, the quarterback is ready to play for the Seattle Seahawks without a new contract.

The Seattle Times reported that the Super Bowl quarterback feels comfortable going into a new season without an extension. He also intends to be a Seahawks for the coming years.

“I’m prepared for that 100 percent, if that’s the case. You know, I want to be here for a long time, but if that’s the case I’ve just got to get ready to play,” Wilson answered when asked about the possibility that no extension comes before the start of the 2015 season. “I love the game, and I love being out here with these guys and just playing, and so ultimately I just take it one day at a time and just see where it takes me.”

Wilson reiterated that he will not allow the contract negotiations to be a distraction for him but instead will focus on enhancing his game this offseason.

“I was down in San Diego training for three months and just trying to get ready with my trainer Ryan Flaherty. That’s kind of been my sole focus for the most part,” Wilson, who helped the Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVIII, said. “And trying to be a better person, too, and trying to be a better teammate, and just try to be there as much as I can and just continue to grow, you know? It’s a maturation process every day, and if I take a day of rest that’s not good enough for me in terms of just trying to continue to grow as a football player, and as a person an all those things.”

Wilson, who enters to his fourth season, has led the Seahawks in two Super Bowl appearances and he made the NFL Pro Bowl teams twice. Because of the success of the Seahawks , Wilson is asking for an extension which is allowed by the Seahawks because the quarterback is in the last year of his career.

With Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill and Panthers Cam Newton awarded big contracts, Russell is expected to have a whopping $100 million plus contract.
