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

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

Reports indicate he may not show up to training camp unless he gets an extension, which could be problematic for this Seattle team after dishing out big time money for Wilson. The team held leverage knowing it likely had at least three more seasons with Wilson under center.

Russell Wilson and the Seahawks agreed to terms on a four-year, $140 million extension late Monday night just before his self-imposed negotiating deadline. "He believes there is still unfinished business and he is looking forward to pursuing that without having to worry about contracts and his future".

Wilson's $140 million, four-year extension puts him at the top of the National Football League salary food chain for now. At $27 million a season for five years, it was quite the investment in a player who hadn't yet broken into an elite tier at his position.

Wilson's average salary will be $35 million per season, which passes Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' $33.5 million for the highest yearly pay.

"Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has stated he is ready and willing to reward Prescott for his first three years, and it's the Cowboys' practice to offer second contracts to good, young players a year before their original deals expire". To keep that factor as part of the program is just a real positive for our fans and for everyone.

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

But all that talk will surely go up in flames on Tuesday as Wilson has reportedly announced via Twitter that he and the Seahawks have reached a contract extension.

Wilson's annual average tops Aaron Rodgers' average annual salary of $33.5 million as part of the $134 million extension he signed a year ago with the Green Bay Packers.

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

They were designed by Respawn Entertainment in collaboration with Lucasfilm and shared with Marvel for the new Darth Vader comic. In an interview with IGN at the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago , Zampella directly stated "it's a single-player story game".

Since entering the league as a third-round selection in the 2011 NFL Draft, Wilson has become a proven franchise cornerstone that has taken the team to great heights.

This deal came literally at the last minute.

"She was involved, and her support really allowed the guys to function at the level where they were able to get this done", Carroll said.

"Hey Seattle", says Wilson.

That's no longer a concern because he'll be with the team for the next several years.

Ever since Wilson arrived, they've won at least nine games every year and made the playoff each year except for 2017. All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner is in line for an extension with his deal expiring after the upcoming season. If the Cowboys think life gets easier as their quarterback gains experience, it's nearly like they've forgotten the oldest rule in the book.

In his career, Wilson has thrown for 25,624 yards, 196 touchdowns and 63 interceptions. The Seahawks have also been getting him at a bargain from pretty much day one. This helps solidify that.

Wilson said, "Imma see y'all in the morning. I'm excited about that", Wilson said.
