While the midnight deadline is imposing, ESPN reported that both sides still are working hard to reach some sort of agreement.

If Wilson doesn't get the extension he desires, he will still attend all training camps and activities and will play during the 2019 season.

However, that doesn't mean he's free to go in 2020 — the Seahawks likely will place the franchise tag on Wilson. It's up to him if he wants to sign the tag, or sit out as negotiations continue.

Wilson, 30, is entering the final year of his four-year, $87.6 million deal. When he signed that deal, he was the NFL's second-highest-paid quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers, averaging $22 million per year.

Rodgers recently jumped back up to the highest-paid quarterback, averaging $33.5 million per year with $103 million in guaranteed money.
