It looks like the ​Seattle Seahawks have less than two weeks to appease their star quarterback.


Franchise man Russell Wilson has paged April 15 as the day by which he wants to complete a contract extension with the team.

​​Wilson is entering the final season of a four-year, $87.6 million deal with the Seahawks, after which he will become an unrestricted free agent.


The two sides have been engaged in active negotiations ahead of offseason workouts, but the talks aren't believed to be productive. Things may be stalling over the fact that ​Wilson has hinted at wanting to become the highest-paid player in the NFL.


Seattle would be wise to dole out the cash for him. In his seven years with the Seahawks, he's led them to two Super Bowl appearances, one Super Bowl win, has been selected to five Pro Bowls, and has compiled a record of 75-36-1.

​​Not once in his time with the team have the Seahawks finished the year with a losing record. 


He's a dual-threat quarterback, the likes of which don't grow on trees, and the lifeblood of the team. If Seattle has any interest in playing competitive football in the foreseeable future, then getting a deal done by April 15 is an absolute must.
