A little trouble in paradise (Seattle)? RW contract talks

Recommended Posts

selfish, me-first

Don't say that until Cam gets paid. Seems cam wants just as much or more!

The NFL and GMs created this beast. They made the Quarterback position essential to winning with rules changes that favor the passing game. And then all these GMs have offered massive contracts because they realize without a star QB their job is not for long. 

 

But spending 1/7th of your cap space on one player who isn't even considered "great" at his position is breaking the cap. Russel Wilson is a pretty good QB, no doubt about it. But average QBs like Andy Dalton, Kaepernick, Flacco, and even Alex Smith are making silly money.

 

At some point a GM just has to throw his hands up and say "I'm not making you the highest paid QB just because your contract is up". Really that is where we are, a QB gets in the final year of their deal and they expect max money even if their 12th best in the league.

He should get more. And Luck will likely get more after seeing the other two unfold. I love where we are.

Russell is average and desrving of his 4th round grade. Nothing to see here.

Defense wins championships.

Why is this surprising... If I could get more than what I was worth I sure would do it.

RW is the 15th best QB in the league. Seattle would be better off moving on honestly

Why? The guy wants to get paid. We all do. He is an idiot because he isn't worth what he is asking for but you can't blame him. This is a capitalist country after all.

They still have him next year and can just tag him the year after. That's plenty of time to come to terms.

Oops. Forgot he doesn't have a fifth year option.
