Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is reportedly ready to restructure his contract to get Jamal Adams and Duane Brown their new deals.
While Russell Wilson is on the field making plays for the Seattle Seahawks at training camp in Renton, that doesn’t mean everything is all nice and peachy for general manager John Schneider. That’s because two of the team’s biggest stars remain off the gridiron.
Star safety Jamal Adams and left tackle Duane Brown are eyeing new contracts and are skipping practices until their deals are completed. According to Adam Jude and Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, Wilson is ready to restructure his contract with the team to help the organization get everything cleared. Could something go down in the coming weeks?
Russell Wilson is ready to go above and beyond to help the Seahawks before Week 1
Obviously, this is quite the selfless act here by Wilson, but it also shows just how badly he wants the two fellow standouts back in action with Week 1 against the Colts inching closer and closer. In Brown’s case, he’s one of the best tackles in the game and is in charge of protecting Wilson’s blindside.
With the offensive line issues the Seahawks have dealt with in the past – which has had Wilson running for his life on several occasions – the signal-caller knows just how key Brown is for the offense.
Meanwhile for Adams, he’s hoping to get a contract that will make him the highest-paid safety in the game. Per Jude and Condotta, the two sides were close to an agreement last week, but there was an issue over the guaranteed money that was being put on the table.
It’s on Schneider to get it done here before the 2021 campaign arrives. Wilson is clearly ready to help out in order for things to be finalized. Now, the general manager will have to step his game up before it’s too late.
