Seahawks, Russell Wilson might be closing in on a new contract

There's optimism that Seattle's quarterback might have a new contract before Monday. Plus, new domestic violence training, camp reports and more.

WILSON DEALING: The self-imposed deadline for the Seahawks and Russell Wilson to finalize a new contract is at 1:30 p.m. ET on Friday. That's probably not going to happen, but could they still get a deal done before Monday? Seattle would be wise to lock him now, before his rates go up. Plus, he's had a powerful effect on the fanbase there.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TRAINING: The NFL is rolling out a new one-hour training session for players this year. The focus is still domestic violence, but the child abuse portion from last year has been replaced with a piece on drunk driving.
