Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson ranked fourth among quarterbacks in rushing attempts last season, but he's more of a scrambler than pure runner, according to ESPN.com writer Mike Sando. He led the NFL in time spent in the pocket per pass play (3.12 seconds) and average time before passing (4.18 seconds). Wilson received more opportunities to run late in the season, when Seattle incorporated read-option plays on offense. Sando doesn't recall Wilson taking an especially hard hit other than one against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14. In a conversation on ESPN Radio show "Mike & Mike," Wilson commented on how he views his responsibilities when on the move:
"To be honest with you, I don't really like running. I'd rather throw the ball to guys and let the true playmakers make the plays. ..."
Fantasy Tip: Wilson may put extra stress on his offensive line, but he's certainly a dynamic passer who has succeeded in the face of plenty of adversity. It'll be interesting to see if he can continue to produce touchdowns at such a prolific rate without accumulating more yards, either in the air or on the ground, in 2013.

Free-agent QB Tarvaris Jackson (Bills) is expected to visit the Seattle Seahawks in the next day or two to possibly sign a contract with the team, two sources said Tuesday, June 11. Jackson was the team's starting quarterback in 2011, but lost his job last summer to QB Russell Wilson, and was traded to the Buffalo Bills. QB Brady Quinn is the current backup to Wilson.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said QB Russell Wilson is a million miles ahead of where he was last year. "He threw a couple of balls today, things that we talked about over the offseason that he'd like to take a shot at, and he did it today just to see what would happen with full awareness of why he was doing it," Carroll said.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he believes QB Russell Wilson could have a breakout season in 2013. "I think he's going to really do well this year. He's going to bust out and will benefit tremendously from his first year. It may be hard to imagine he's going to get any better, but I think he's going to get a lot better, being he was a first year starter, first time in the League," Carroll said.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he is not worried about opponents figuring out the team's read-option offense because the team only runs 15 to 20 percent of their plays out of the formation. Wilson said he believes the formation is effective because the team likes to throw out of the formation. "Yeah, it's tough to stop," Wilson said. "I think the thing with us, and why it works so efficient for us, is we love throwing the ball out of the formation. We do a lot of things, a lot of play action, a lot of different looks."

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, contrary to an earlier report, did not ask the team to rework his rookie contract. "I speak for myself. I never demanded or asked for a restructured contract," Wilson said.

An unnamed representative of Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson reportedly called the team this week "insisting that something be done" to adjust Wilson's slotted third-round rookie contract. However, the new collective bargaining agreement prevents rookie contracts from being renegotiated until three of the mandatory four years have been completed. Theoretically, the Seahawks could simply cut Wilson and sign him to a new contract, if he clears waivers; however, he would not clear waivers.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly may have changed his mind about coaching at the pro level after watching Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick perform in the divisional round playoffs last weekend, according to former NFL head coach Tony Dungy. "Could it be that Chip Kelly watched the playoffs and watched Russell Wilson run a little bit of his read option in the spread offense, and watched Colin Kaepernick run a little bit more of it?" Dungy said. Dungy added he believes Kelly watched the playoffs thinking, "My offense is way farther advanced than that, and maybe if this is going through the NFL, it might not be so tough."
