  • Russell Wilson won't sign with Seattle Seahawks after self-imposed deadline

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson doesn't intend to sign a contract extension with the franchise this season if the two sides fail to reach an agreement before his self-imposed deadline. It includes a $65 million signing bonus, payable this year, and keeps Wilson a Seahawk through the 2023 season, when he's 35.

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.

Wilson's annual average tops Aaron Rodgers' average annual salary of $33.5 million as part of the $134 million extension he signed past year with the Green Bay Packers. That tops Aaron Rodgers' recent ceiling of $33 million a year, and it pushes Stafford to sixth in the contract pecking order, also behind Matt Ryan at $30 million, Kirk Cousins at $28 million and Jimmy Garoppolo at $27.5 million.

"Hey, Seattle, we got a deal", says a shirtless and tired-sounding Wilson, his wife resting on his shoulder, in a video posted on Twitter. There are few players who I'd want to see become the highest paid player in the league more than Wilson. "Time for ya'll to go to bed".


Peter King of NBC Sports reported Monday that Wilson had hoped to get a contract that didn't have a set amount of money he would be paid. Wilson's agent, Mark Rodgers, arrived at team headquarters last Friday to hammer out a deal, according to ESPN.

Russell Wilson and Ciara have millions of reasons to celebrate.

No more speculation about Wilson wanting to play elsewhere. Seattle has also reached the playoffs 6 of the 7 years Wilson has been under center, as TMZ points out. Without Clark, Reed's ability to get to the quarterback would be even more important, and he could get paid like it. 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.

Since being drafted by the Hawks in 2012, the five-time Pro Bowler has led the Hawks to a Super Bowl victory during the 2013 season. Your dedication, consistency & commitment to the game never wavers.
