Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that the Seahawks’ $21 million per year offer to QB Russell Wilson isn’t the total value of the agreement, but includes his $1.5 million salary under his rookie agreement.
According to Florio, if the Seahawks are offering Wilson $21 million annually over the course of four years, the total value of the deal would be $85.5 million over five years or an average salary of $17.1 million.
Florio mentions that Wilson would likely be able to get a much more than $21 million per year from either the Seahawks or another team at some point.
The two sides have another 36 hours or so to continue discussing an extension before Wilson’s self imposed deadline is up.

Even so, Florio expects the Giants to eventually lock up Manning to a deal that will allow him to retire with the franchise.
