While the midnight deadline is imposing, ESPN reported that both sides still are working hard to reach some sort of agreement.

According to reports from several National Football League insiders, Wilson is not seeking a specific salary number, but a percentage of the team's salary cap.

But the Seahawks had to weigh how much to pay Wilson while also knowing they have decisions coming on Clark as well as Reed and middle linebacker Bobby Wagner.

Denver's offensive line has improved over the last couple of seasons, but with new additions, I would consider it a red flag, especially if Wilson is a Bronco. The only ERFA who did not sign his deal Monday was receiver David Moore.
