It seems that it has been an off-season filled with contract negotiations for top stars which have just continually dragged on.

This week, DeMaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant got long term deals with the Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys respectively, but not every saga is over.

Seahawks having to think again?

Whilst the Cowboys and Broncos got their men locked up, the Seattle Seahawks still haven't signed quarterback Russell Wilson to a long term contract.

With everyone else in the league monitoring the situation surrounding the Super Bowl winning quarterback, Wilson has seemingly made one decision.

Although neither party has confirmed it, reports claim that Wilson's contract negotiations have a closing date and that may mean trouble for the Seahawks.

According to, Wilson will no longer be partaking in contract talks once he enters training camp with the team.

Wilson has reportedly said he wants to focus on his play, his team-mates and football, but not on his contract.

Should this be the case, this means that Wilson will be going into the next off-season with his future in doubt.

Many would expect the Seahawks to hit Wilson with the franchize tag should that happen but could Wilson not agreeing to a contract by the start of camp be a sign of things to come?

Given that his agent Mark Rodgers has a history of gaining his clients big money contracts, many feel that the with every day that passes, the chances of him re-signing decrease.

Who to pick

It goes without saying that Wilson is looking to be the highest paid player in the league but the question could become, who would be after him if he did leave Seattle?

Without a doubt, the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills would certainly be interested in acquiring his services.

But who would be the team to lure Wilson in if he becomes available?
