The negotiations between Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks started some time in the spring and however "ongoing" they have been is unknown. What has been known instead is that Wilson started dating Ciara, hosted a pointless awards show, and stopped having sex.
The good news is that it looks like he might start making sweet, sweet love to the negotiating table next week just before training camp starts.

If true, and it seems to make the most sense that the two sides would meet again just before Wilson has to start practicing because he'll be in Washington, then it's finally an actual possibility that this process is going to end soon. Maybe even a week from today.
The bad news is that if they can't come to an agreement by July 31, the first day of training camp, then it's possible that negotiations will just be put on hold until 2016.

Which basically means that because of my vow to write about Russell Wilson every day until he signs a new contract with the Seahawks, I have a new deadline: If the two sides can't make a deal by next Friday I will probably be dead by Saturday via suicide.
Russell, for the love of that dude in the sky you love so much, sign the deal.
