Russell Wilson & Ciara Cuddle Up After $140 Million Contract Extension

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson reportedly agreed to contract extension with the team on Tuesday that will make him the highest paid player in National Football League history.

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 new deal makes Wilson a higher paid QB than Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers (who gets around $33.5 million per year and was given a $57.5 million signing bonus).

Wilson was set to enter the final year of his four-year, $87.6 million deal where he was set to make roughly $25.3 million for the 2019 campaign. Wilson and the Seahawks fell to the New England Patriots the next year in Super Bowl XLIX.

Wilson announced his record-breaking deal while in bed with his popstar wife Ciara, telling his followers: "Hey Seattle, we got a deal!" "Go Hawks!" she said, with Russell adding, "I'ma see y'all in the morning. Time for y'all to go to bed", before the two ended the short video.

Given the fact that he plays in the NFC West, and that the Rams have their own quarterback to pay in a year or two, Wilson's deal has an impact on Los Angeles and Jared Goff. The deal reportedly came after several days of negotiation.

Since coming into the NFL, Russell Wilson has been a master of the fourth-quarter comeback.

If you didn't already know Ciara and Russell Wilson are winning, you just learned today!

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.

Ever since Wilson arrived, they've won at least nine games every year and made the playoff each year except for 2017. Without Clark, Reed's ability to get to the quarterback would be even more important, and he could get paid like it. 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.

Last season, Wilson surpassed his previous career bests with 35 touchdown passes and a 110.9 passer rating. So, I'm really proud of him and excited for him no matter what.
