Russell Wilson fired off some cryptic tweets which could be interpreted to him bemoaning the lack of progress on contract talks with the Seahawks.

The Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson are in the midst of a protracted negotiation process related to the quarterback’s next contract. While there have been whispers of ebbs and flows and rumors of some progress being made, the parties’ inability to come to terms on a mutually satisfactory extension of course comes down to one thing: Money.

A report from a few weeks ago suggested that Wilson and the Seahawks are “10s of millions apart” in arriving at a number, so the stage certainly is set for frustration on Wilson’s part. The dire assessment of how the negotiations are proceeding corroborated an earlier report from April that indicated little to no progress was being made.

With all that in mind, Wilson took to Twitter on Thursday and shot off two tweets that couldn’t have been more cryptic, although they are consistent with themes Wilson frequently relies upon for his tweets. And because of the nature of his social media musings, the meaning or meanings behind the two from Thursday can be interpreted countless ways.

“Always control what you can control,” Wilson writes in the first tweet. “Never let others nonsense & lack of gratefulness & respect bring you down.”

“Doubted me then. Doubt me now. All I know is the#BestIsAhead either way,” Wilson writes, linking to a photo on Instagram of his workouts at the NFL Combine. “Sleep if you want to…”

The photo linked in the second tweet is from his workouts at the NFL Combine.

Obviously, the knee-jerk reaction is to assume the tweets are related to how Wilson is becoming frustrated with the progress — or lack thereof — in hammering out a deal with the Seahawks.
