Russell Wilson Agrees To Four-Year, $140M Extension With Seahawks

Russell Wilson becomes NFL's highest-paid player in blockbuster deadline deal

Over the next four years, Wilson will make an average of $35 million a year.

Wilson's deal also includes a pretty hefty signing bonus of $65 million.

For days, I speculated that if Wilson got involved in the final hours before the Monday midnight deadline his team had set for the Seahawks, all he had to swap was the retention of that clause for more signing bonus money for him. "He believes there is still unfinished business and he is looking forward to pursuing that without having to worry about contracts and his future".

When asked about a new deal on Monday at the start of offseason workouts, Wentz left the contract discussions to his agent.

McIlroy played the par 5s in even - two bogeys, one par and an eagle on No. 8 that got him under par, but only briefly. Oosthuizen posted the second-lowest number in round two - his 66 improving on the scores of Molinari and Day by one.

After signing his big deal, Wilson and his wife Ciara took to Twitter where they looked pretty happy and cuddled up.

For those anxious about Wilson eating up too much cap room and cash, don't worry. With Wilson locked up until 2023, the Seahawks are poised to be a contender for years to come.

It all happened just 30 minutes before Wilson's deadline of midnight last night and resulted in the Seattle quarterback committing himself to the team for the next four years in return for the biggest contract in National Football League history.

The Dallas Morning News' Tim Cowlishaw recently wrote that Cowboys fans should pay attention to Wilson's deal. Why? "Time for y'all to go to bed". Now that his buddy K.J. Wright is back, the Seahawks can probably get Wagner on a four or five year contract worth somewhere between 14-15 million annually. He is a six-time Pro Bowler who has passed for 25,624 yards over seven seasons. He attempted only 427 passes - his lowest total since his second season, when Seattle won the Super Bowl - but he had a career best 110.9 passer rating. Teams simply don't give up on quarterbacks with the kind of success he's had. The proposal would have been unprecedented for the Seahawks and the rest of the league, complicating the already brutal chore of hiring enough premium players around the star QB who are good enough to contend for a championship. He's also been extremely durable, never missing a game while playing through significant knee, ankle and shoulder injuries.
