Russell Wilson tweets he has reached a deal with the Seahawks

Wilson reported to the team's off-season conditioning program Monday, according to ESPN.

Rapoport said Wilson's side and the Seahawks were "still grinding" in the hopes of getting a deal done before the end of Monday night, which he said Seattle fans should take as "a reason for optimism".

Wilson has given the Seahawks a deadline of midnight tonight to ink a long term deal, otherwise he will play out his current contract and force Seattle into the franchise tag game that eventually got Kirk Cousins onto the open market.

The eighth-year quarterback previously set a deadline for his last extension in 2015, but it wasn't until the beginning of training camp.

In classic Wilson form, he was the first to break the news. Wilson was pictured in one photo alongside defensive tackle Jarran Reed (who is also entering the final year of his contract), the Seahawks at least answering one question on the day, even if many more remained.

He later said he is not sure there had been improper surveillance but will make sure proper procedures were followed. And do you know why we fight back? Mark Warner , the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, told CNN .

The Russell Wilson contract situation has evolved into the next chapter.

The Seahawks have not officially made an announcement.

Assuming that Wilson's deadline actually means something and that it's not just hot air, and assuming he does cut off negotiations as he's reportedly threatened to do if no agreement is struck by said deadline, then Wilson could be forcing Seattle into a tight spot ahead of the 2020 season. Meeting his demands might get Wilson and his agent back to the table after the deadline.

The 30-year-old's old average annual salary - $21.9 million - had put him at 12th in the National Football League for quarterbacks. But can they live with trading away Wilson instead?
