NFL Notes: Russell Wilson, Broncos, & Giants

Russell Wilson

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson reiterated at the ESPYs Wednesday night that he loves playing Seattle while adding “we’ll see what happens” in regards to a long-term extension with the team.

“I love Seattle, it’s a great city,” Wilson said, via “I’m going to play my butt off every day. That’s all I know, and we’ll see what happens.”

Earlier in the week, Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters that they want Wilson back and “playing for us forever.”

Well, he’s crucial, as are all of our guys, and we want him back playing for us forever,” Carroll said, via the Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “There’s a lot of work being done. It’s underway right now and maybe it happens, I don’t know. We’re hoping for it.”


Mike Klis of 9News reports that the Broncos offered WR Demaryius Thomas a seven-year, $100 million deal, but the receiver decided it was best to go with a five-year, $70 million agreement.

According to Klis, the sixth year included an option and would have paid Thomas $15 million and another $15 million in year seven of the contract.


Former Giants WR Marcus Harris recently underwent microfracture surgery on his right knee before he was placed on waivers Wednesday.

“No need to feel sad or sorry for me,” Harris told Jordan Raanan of “I don’t feel that way for myself. The pot of Soup is just at a simmer right now. It’s only a matter of time until it’s boiling again.

“Always going be a special place for that Big Blue nation.”
