It is a 4-year, $140 million extension in new money and includes a $65 million signing bonus, according to ESPN.

In classic Wilson form, he was the first to break the news.

While the Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson don't appear to be on the same page, yet, it doesn't necessarily mean that the time the quarterback and the franchise have spent together is coming to an end.

The answer to that question won't be known unless and until the Seahawks and Wilson fail to work out a contract before Wilson's stated deadline of April 15, and whether the Seahawks would at some point explore the possibility of trading Wilson elsewhere.

His last deal made him the NFL's second-highest-paid quarterback, behind Aaron Rodgers' $22 million per season.

If Wilson doesn't get the extension he desires, he will still attend all training camps and activities and will play during the 2019 season. Meeting his demands might get Wilson and his agent back to the table after the deadline. John Elway once convinced Peyton Manning to come to Denver to finish his career, and he could hit a home run for the Broncos by landing Wilson at age 30. Wilson has since fallen to 12th in terms of annual average salary among quarterbacks, and it is believed he wants his next contract to hold up longer than his last one.

While the world waited on word on Wilson, the Seahawks did make a few moves, with restricted free agents George Fant and Quinton Jefferson officially signing their tenders, and nine exclusive rights free agents also signing their tenders. But Tom Peliserro of the NFL Network reported that Moore will sign his contract Tuesday.
