Report: Russell Wilson’s rep asks the Seahawks for a new contract

According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen via, a unamed representative of quarterback Russell Wilson has called the Seahawks “insisting that something be done” to adjust his current rookie contract.

PFT stated taht Wilson and his rips will have to wait two years before he can get a raise.

As we’ve mentioned plenty of times (and specifically in relation to Wilson), the new CBA prevents rookie contracts from being renegotiated until three of the mandatory four years have been completed.  While Mort gives Cook an escape hatch by suggesting that the call may have been placed in jest, it’s a joke that the statement was even uttered to the Seahawks.
