Russell Wilson Denies Asking For New Contract

Jan 22, 2013 12:35 PM EST

Russell Wilson has publicly said that he has not requested a new contract from the Seattle Seahawks.

ESPN reported that a rep from Wilson's camp contacted the team, "insisting that something had to be done to adjust the bargain rookie contract for the third-round quarterback."

"I speak for myself. I never demanded or asked for a restructured contract," Wilson told Sports Illustrated.

Wilson is set to earn $526,217 in 2013 and $662,434 the following season. Wilson's $798,651 number in 2015 is up for negotiation.
