QB Russell Wilson reiterates desire to stay with Seahawks
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Quarterback Russell Wilson, whose contract status has developed into one of the offseason's major storylines, said that despite the issue with his deal, he still wants to remain with the Seahawks

"The rest will work out. The contract will work itself out. I'm excited about it and excited to hopefully be a Seattle Seahawk for a really, really long time," Wilson said during a football camp. "So, that's the goal."

Wilson is slated to play out the final year of his rookie contract in 2015, making $1.54 million, a figure wildly below market value for a player who has been to back-to-back Super Bowls.

Seahawks DE Michael Bennett threatens to hold out
by Marty Gitlin |

Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett has told a Honolulu television station that he might hold out of training camp due to his dissatisfaction with his contract situation.

Bennett attended the mandatory minicamp last week, which indicated he would be fine for training camp. But he told KHON2 that he might consider holding out in an attempt to get a new contract and remain in Hawaii.

Seahawks WR Chris Matthews wants to prove his worth
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Seahawks wide receiver Chris Matthews shocked the football world during the Super Bowl when he caught four passes for more than 100 yards -- four more than he had caught in his brief NFL career. 

But Matthews wants to be more than a fluke, and per, he's worked hard to ensure that he's part of Seattle's offense throughout the season. He has a chance to potentially earn a starting role when the team holds its training camp next month. 

"Last year was a lot of ups and downs for me," Matthews said. "I was just trying to figure out what was best for me. How can I fit in? The biggest thing was when I understood practice means a lot here. You practice hard, you play hard, is what a lot of people say here. I picked that up and embraced it."

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson insured against injury this year
by Marty Gitlin |

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson hopes he plays this season under a new, more lucrative contract. But caution has trumped hope.

Wilson confirmed that he has taken out an insurance policy in case he gets badly hurt during the final year of his rookie deal that will pay him a comparatively meager $1.5 million.

"That's just being smart," Wilson told the Tacoma News Tribune. "If I do have to play this season (without a new contract), that's just being smart. That's all that is, really. I think that's the right thing to do."

Wilson added that negotiations that extend into the season will not distract him from maximizing his performance. Pete Carroll can certainly see the possibility of talks taking place during the year.

"I don't care how long we keep working," he said. "Whatever it takes, to do the right thing. ... That's why we are working."
