Seahawks, QB Wilson agree to record 4-year, $140M deal

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

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

Perhaps between the two extremes is the one laid out by the latest CBS Sports mock draft, which predicts that the New York Giants will go for quarterback Russell Wilson over picking any player in the first round this year.

According to numerous reports, the extension with the Seahawks is worth $140 million over four years, including a $65 million signing bonus, making Wilson the highest-paid player in the National Football League.

The reported deal extends his contract to 2023 and gives Wilson a new record of $35 million per season as well as a record-high signing bonus.

The 30-year-old's per year average of $35m (£27m) tops Aaron Rodgers' average annual salary of $33.5m (£25.6m) as part of the $134m (£102.6m) extension he signed last year with the Green Bay Packers. Wilson's previous $87.6 million, four-year deal was signed at the beginning of training camp in 2015 and was set to expire after next season.

'He believes there is still unfinished business and he is looking forward to pursuing that without having to worry about contracts and his future'. If the Seahawks can't lock up Wilson to a new deal, the franchise likely will use the franchise tag on the quarterback. Wilson's message was simple, "Hey, Seattle, we got a deal". He had a unique standoff with the Seahawks, giving them an April 15 date to give him a new deal, right in line with the deadline to file taxes. It also led Seattle back to the playoffs after a one-year absence, where that steadfast run orientation burned them in a loss to the Cowboys. And when throwing under pressure-something Wilson's quite used to doing-he was the only NFL quarterback to throw a league-leading 10 touchdowns.

When asked about the possible deal during an interview with ET last month, Ciara said she'd be proud of Wilson "no matter what".

He's now the highest paid player in the NFL. "Time for y'all to go to bed".

Of course, this isn't the end for Wilson and the Seahawks. He's a five-time Pro Bowler and he's won the Super Bowl with the Seahawks. In this scenario, the Seahawks trade their second round pick and the number six overall pick to the Jets, who take offensive lineman Jawaan Taylor from Florida. But like Wilson, Clark and Wagner, he is set to hit free agency after the 2019 season.

The Seahawks' Super Bowl loss the next year, via an ill-fated interception by virtue of an ill-advised play call, always will hang over Wilson.
