Commentary: New contracts, not much drama for Wilson and Wagner – not surprising, yet refreshing
The Seahawks now have both their quarterbacks locked up longterm: Their quarterback of the offense (Russell Wilson) and their quarterback of the defense (Bobby Wagner). And best of all – there’s no more contract drama, and it’s not even August. I don’t need to remind anyone that over the past five seasons, we’ve seen players absent from OTAs or mini-camps or arriving late to Seahawks Training Camp, even one player carrying a holdout into the regular season – all to express displeasure with current contracts. We’ve seen contentious back-and-forths between team and player and agent played out through the media, creating unfortunate longterm chasms between fans and their favorite Seahawks.
