Russell Wilson has had more than two weeks to mull the pass that stole the Lombardi Trophy from his grasp.

He’s also had more than two weeks to consider his future with the Seattle Seahawks.

With the arrival of the offseason and the upcoming start to the new league year, the latter moves to the forefront of his team’s offseason checklist, and likely his as well. The time away offers a chance to secure a contract extension for the quarterback. Continue reading

It was a decision that, more than 12 hours later, is still being questioned. It’s likely just the beginning of the in-depth examination of what went wrong with the Seahawks a mere 3 feet from essentially securing their second Lombardi Trophy in as many seasons.
