5 Potential NFL Moves That Sound Crazy, But Might Not Be | The Daily Spot
The Seahawks have notoriously gone against signing players to maximum contracts, with the recent exception of CB Richard Sherman. Wilson’s earned the right to demand the highest contract in the league, but Seattle might simply not have a way to fit $70M over their next three seasons, with almost all of it likely fully guaranteed. So the alternative here just might be locking in Wilson to an exclusive franchise tag offer immediately after the 2015 season, then taking offers. It’s a risky situation on both ends, as new teams will likely have to offer up more than one first round draft pick plus additional compensation to be in the running. Our look at what Wilson’s next contract might look like.

Stat breakdown: How effectively does YPA reflect a quarterback's success? |
Of the several rookie quarterbacks who were handed the starting reins last season, Derek Carr seemed to receive the most divisive reviews. Though Carr helped an Oakland team largely devoid of talent win three of its last six games, including a 26-24 win over Buffalo’s fearsome pass defense, there was a prevailing feeling that the rookie only stayed afloat due to the Raiders using one of the most safe, vanilla playbooks in recent memory.

He doesn't believe in the sport-science aspect like Coach Carroll or Coach Kelly and the newfound technology for the players. His style takes a hit, because he doesn't believe in this aspect. He believes in winning, but he doesn't believe in the modern medicine to progress the players to that next level.
