The Russell Wilson contract talks now have a deadline and it's set for the start of training camp. Will this entire offseason saga finally come to a conclusion, or will it continue to linger? Only time will tell. Adam turns the discussion toward asking the question about why money is the end goal. Can a player put a price tag on avoiding the media drama?
Perhaps Russell Okung has it figured out as he says he's going to represent himself in upcoming negotiations. We also reset the interview from last week with Seahawks long snapper Nate Boyer and talk about some of the things that came up in his interview.
TD, producer of the Around the NFL, Dave Dameshek Football Program and Move the Sticks podcasts, joins the show as the official/unofficial Russell Wilson and Ciara relationship correspondent. Should we be worried about the seemingly disparate nature of Wilson's relationship with Ciara? Adam suggests Russell might need someone like Hitch in his corner to help him work through these early stages of the relationship.
Last week the BC Lions and Saskatchewan Roughriders played for our fandom, so we get into a bit of CFL. Afterwards, the guys move on to a few emails and Al from Australia talks about just how different Seattle and Santa Clara are for watching a football game after having attended in back-to-back weeks last season.
Lastly, an NFL stadium is compared to the mission to Pluto in the Do Better segment along with Richard Sherman's latest wish. Better at life honors go to a pair of quarterbacks: Brett Favre and Russell Wilson.
