On Friday, Terry Blount of ESPN.com said during a visit with 710 ESPN in Seattle that the Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson are “very close” on a new deal. The news naturally sparked further beating of the bushes for additional details.

The details seem to be there are no details. A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT talks haven’t commenced yet.

It’s unclear when talks will begin, and the goal for finalizing a contract isn’t known. Regardless, the official process of negotiating the contract, with the team and agent Mark Rodgers trading proposals until a consensus is reached, has not yet begun.

With Marshawn Lynch being paid $12 million for 2015 and tight end Jimmy Graham owed $27 million over the next three, Wilson’s $1.542 million salary for the final year of a four-year, $2.996 million contract becomes even more glaring.
