The Seahawks have known of Russell Wilson‘s deadline for three months. He still doesn’t have a new deal Dontae Johnson Jersey Green , and news of the deadline doesn’t appear to have moved along negotiations.Wilson’s representation and the Seahawks have had talks of late but no significant breakthroughs, Bob Condotta of the reports.“There has been very little progress made between the two sides,” Condotta quoted a league source.Wilson set a deadline of April 15 — the start of the team’s offseason program — for a new deal. The Seahawks quarterback has one year remaining on the four-year, $87.6 million contract he signed July 31, 2015, and he wants to avoid the speculation that occurred during the 2015 offseason.The Seahawks have the franchise tag they could use for 2020, and Wilson’s camp is aware “the franchise tag is a far more realistic possibility than last time,” according to Condotta.Wilson said in January he would play the 2019 season without a new contract “if that’s what I’ve got to do.”PFT has reported that Wilson will be present for all offseason workouts, with or without a new contract.Wilson, 30, has a 75-36-1 record, six postseason appearances, a Super Bowl title, 17 comeback wins and five Pro Bowls in his seven seasons. When the NFL announced its Pro Bowl rosters on Tuesday evening, only two members of the Seattle Seahawks made the squad 12th Fan Jersey Green , All Universe linebacker Bobby Wagner and rookie phenom punter Michael Dickson. Of the multiple Seahawks who made the team as alternates, one of the players who received the most outcry about having been snubbed is Frank Clark, who is an alternate, but is not a starter. Thus, the question becomes, was he snubbed? Fans of the Hawks (and other teams) reacted on social media and elsewhere regarding the omission of Clark from the NFC squad. Here’s a sampling of some of the reaction on Twitter: So, obviously, multiple fans think Clark was snubbed, so let’s turn to the stats and see. There’s no doubt that Clark is easily having the best season of his young NFL career, as he has been a terror for opposing quarterbacks all season, recording 12 sacks and 21 quarterback hits. How does that compare to the three defensive ends that made the NFC Pro Bowl team?

However, these are obviously all numbers that are accumulated in the passing game, so the question follows, where does Clark stack up when it comes to making plays in the running game Womens Rashaad Penny Jersey , and here we start to see some separation between Clark and the other players.

Thus, when combining the fact that the pass rushing numbers are largely the same for all four players, the fact that Clark’s contributions in stopping the run fall short of the other three leads me to believe that Pro Bowl selection process actually made the correct decision putting him as an alternate. Now, can an argument be made that Clark should have made the Pro Bowl? Absolutely. But in my opinion, the three guys who did make it, are the three guys who should have made it. Moving on to one of the other players for whom there have been some loud voices on social media, Tyler Lockett was also not selected to the Pro Bowl roster. This in spite of having recorded 800 yards and 9 touchdowns in an offense that throws the ball less often than any other offense in the NFL, which appears to have been the problem. Yes, there is no doubt that Lockett is having a phenomenally efficient season, and that he has returned to health in 2018 to fill the void left by the departure of Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham. However, players don’t make the Pro Bowl based on efficiency because fans still like big counting numbers. Thus, let’s go ahead and compare Lockett’s 2018 numbers to those players who did make the Pro Bowl: Julio Jones, Michael Thomas, Adam Thielen and Davante Adams.

Unfortunately, Mystery Man isn’t a real person, it’s the combined stats of Lockett and Doug Baldwin. So, yes, there is absolutely zero debate whatsoever that Lockett is having a phenomenal season, and that his phenomenal season is the result of a historically efficient season. At the end of the day Pro Bowl voters want big numbers, and no receiver in the current Seahawks offense is going to put up the kind of numbers necessary to make the Pro Bowl. Thus, if you have an issue with Lockett having been left off the Pro Bowl roster, it seems more appropriate to take it up with Pete Carroll and Brian Schottenheimer than it does to complain about the process or how Lockett never stood a chance in the offensive system in which he plays. Just to demonstrate how little the Seahawks actually throw the ball, and how few opportunities he actually gets as a receiver, here are Lockett’s numbers compared to the four Pro Bowl tight ends from both the AFC and the NFC.
