QB Wilson won't sign after deadline

Denver's offensive line has improved over the last couple of seasons, but with new additions, I would consider it a red flag, especially if Wilson is a Bronco.

His last deal made him the NFL's second-highest-paid quarterback, behind Aaron Rodgers' $22 million per season.

There are a lot of players in the National Football League that would hold out for more money if they didn't come to terms on a contract extension.

In 2015, Wilson also set a deadline for an extension, but that wasn't until the start of training camp, and the two sides agreed on a four-year, $87.6 million deal at the last minute. Here are the five teams most in need of Wilson's services, starting with the Denver Broncos.

But the Seahawks had to weigh how much to pay Wilson while also knowing they have decisions coming on Clark as well as Reed and middle linebacker Bobby Wagner.

Wilson is a mobile quarterback who has the ability to escape pressure, which would be a necessity if he were to be traded to the Broncos. Realistically, the Broncos would have to give up multiple first-round draft picks, as well as a high-profile player. He has also been linked to the New York Giants.

The news comes shortly after reports surfaced that the 30-year-old wants to play for another team, and his unspoken desire to move on has led him to take a harder stance during contract negotiations.

Even if the deadline isn't met, it's still possible for the Seahawks to extend Wilson. The closer it gets towards the deadline, the more it seems like he could be traded.

Instead of waiting for Seattle to run the course with Wilson, several quarterback teams should call up John Schneider and see what it would take to get Wilson from the Seahawks.
