Wilson, Seahawks Being Patient with New Deal


Russell Wilson said he remains optimistic and “hopeful.” The Seattle Seahawks are ready to be patient. They are echoing the quarterback’s agent by saying they don’t feel any deadline in getting a new contract done by the start of training camp July 31.

Then Irvin said he wanted to be play for Seattle, not his hometown of Atlanta, next year and beyond. Even Marshawn Lynch was on the field, albeit idled.
