Then, Seahawks could just donate that money directly off the books to the charity and the cap gets the discount.
I do think there will be some very "creative" accounting tactics at work for the Wilson contract, someway somehow. As valuable as he is to this franchise, I just cannot imagine Schneider after all this work saddling the team with a contract that doesn't give the Seahawks the chance to improve.
If everyone is assuming the cap to substantially increase year on year, perhaps Wilson takes a bit less for the next season with the team giving him assurances for re-negotiation, or just assurances that his salary will increase alongside the increasing cap figure. I think someway, somehow they get this done without saddling the team too badly. Wilson will get his payday but I do think he understands that the "Russell Wilson brand" (and thus his endorsement money) will grow to be a much higher payday if he's playing on a successful team. He easily in a short period of time could be the highest paid NFL player in endorsements.
