Seahawks' Leonard Williams unlikely to get extension this season

Seahawks' Leonard Williams unlikely to get extension this season

Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Leonard Williams, who arrived in Seattle earlier this week in a trade from the New York Giants, is not expected to sign an extension during the season, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Now this is nothing to worry about, the Seahawks tend to do this a lot when it comes to players they trade for mid-season. They did this with Quandre Diggs, Jamal Adams, Jadeveon Clowney, and many others.

Simply, if he plays good enough, he will get the extension from the Seahawks, it's that simple for the team and Leonard Williams.

Preform and get paid, don't preform, then you can expect him to walk without the Seahawks having to take on more money. 

 Pete Carroll and the Seahawks were very happy to have Leonard Williams join the team this season:

"We've watched him for a long time and have known him for a good while, a Trojan and all that," Carroll said. "He's a fantastic football player. He's the kind of guy that can make a difference in games. He's really a nice player."

Williams, 29, has 1.5 sacks this season and 39.5 in his career.
