‘Hey Seattle, we got a deal’: Russell Wilson re-signs with Seahawks

The deal is worth $140 million over four years with a $65 million signing bonus, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday, making Wilson the highest-paid player in the National Football League at $35 million per year.

Recent rumors linked Wilson to the New York Giants as Eli Manning's replacement and suggested he might demand a trade if he and the Seahawks failed to agree to a long-term contract extension by Monday. Over the next four years, Wilson will make an average of $35 million a year. "Go Hawks! But, I'm gonna see y'all in the morning".

Since the Seahawks' contract with Percy Harvin in 2013, they have put a clause in contracts that guaranteed all or parts of the second year base if the player is on the roster five days after the Super Bowl. Wilson's agent, Mark Rodgers, arrived at team headquarters last Friday to hammer out a deal, according to ESPN. 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. 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.

"At the same time, and I know Dak wants this, you want a supporting cast", Jones said on a recent interview with ESPN Radio. This development was too good to keep to himself, as Russell told everyone the good news while still in bed with his wife, Ciara, 33.

The deal ends the debate about Wilson's future with the Seahawks, although there seemed to be little doubt he would remain in Seattle for a while.

Wilson, 30, has been one of the best players in the NFL since entering the league in 2011. He reached the playoffs in six out of his first seven campaigns including bringing the first championship to the organization by winning one of out two trips to the Super Bowl. Without Clark, Reed's ability to get to the quarterback would be even more important, and he could get paid like it.

Last season, Wilson surpassed his previous career bests with 35 touchdown passes and a 110.9 passer rating. "I'm excited about that", Wilson said.
