Source: Seahawks want 1st-rounder for DE Clark

The Seahawks would want any trade package for defensive end Frank Clark to include at least a first-round pick in this year's draft, a source told ESPN on Saturday.

Here are the details of Russell Wilson's four-year, $140 million extension: As previously reported, a record $65 million signing bonus (part of which will be paid next year) makes up over half of the $107 million in guarantees. The Seahawks maintained club precedent of only making the first year's salary fully guaranteed, so his 2020-2023 salaries are guaranteed for injury only at time of signing and become fully guaranteed on the fifth day of each league year waiver period. The final two seasons have $5 million roster bonuses due on the fifth day of the league year. Wilson's base salaries and cap numbers by year are $5 million/$26.287 million for 2019; $18 million/$31 million for 2020; $19 million/$32 million for 2021; $19 million/$37 million for 2022; $21 million/$39 million for 2023.

More from Seahawks GM John Schneider: Doug Baldwin has indeed had surgery for a sports hernia, his third surgery of the offseason. "That's a process we're still working through," Schneider said. "He's recovering from that right now and we'll see where it goes. He's a tough guy though. I mean, if anybody can recover from surgeries like this, it's Doug. He's a stud." ... Schneider wouldn't comment on whether talks have begun on an extension for Bobby Wagner. When asked about Wagner, close friend K.J. Wright gave a response that suggests he won't be giving any sort of a discount. “He's the best linebacker in the NFL," Wright said. "As you saw what those guys got in free agency, it's gonna have to be up there as well, so they've got to make it happen." ... Schneider said the team hasn't made a decision on picking up Germain Ifedi's fifth-year option; the deadline is May 3.

Asked about where things stand with Frank Clark, Seahawks GM John Schneider said trade rumors are common this time of the year -- but he didn't shoot anything down. "He's a franchised player. We love Frank. He's an incredibly effective pass-rusher and we love him. That's where they stand," Schneider said Thursday before an even for his and his wife's charity, Ben's Fund. "I know where you're going. When you're getting close to the trade deadline and you get close to the draft, it's like major speculation, a ton of drama, all the news outlets and everything. I get it. It's what we're doing, it's entertainment. People around the league know that we're in every deal, that the people on my staff, we're always trying to understand the landscape around the National Football League. If we didn't, we wouldn't be doing our job. We can't ever have our head in the sand with anything, but we love Frank. Obviously that's why we franchised him."

Source: Seahawks make Wilson top-paid in NFL

The Seahawks and Russell Wilson have reached agreement on a four-year, $140 million extension that includes a $65 million signing bonus, making him the highest-paid player in the NFL, a source says.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

By agreeing to a record extension with Russell Wilson, the Seahawks and their quarterback avoid the messy and dicey alternative. The unwieldy cap charges that would have come with Wilson playing on franchise tags after 2019 would have made it more difficult than it already will be for Seattle to extend Bobby Wagner and/or Frank Clark. It would have meant no long-term certainty for Wilson. And it may have been the first step towards an eventual divorce between the Seahawks and the player who's most important to their chances of competing for a Super Bowl. Last season's playoff berth showed that you can never count out a team with an elite quarterback. The Seahawks won't have to find out what life is like without one anytime soon.

Russell Wilson and the Seahawks have agreed to an extension. Wilson made that announcement himself in a video he posted to Twitter about 45 minutes after the passing of the midnight Tuesday deadline his side had set. "Hey Seattle, we got a deal," Wilson said while lying in bed next to his wife Ciara.

As expected, Russell Wilson was present Monday for the start of the Seahawks' offseason program amid the uncertainty over his contract negotiations. Wilson is pictured in a gallery on the team's website alongside defensive tackle Jarran Reed, whose presence is also noteworthy given that he's entering the final year of his rookie deal and is in line for an extension of his own.
