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

17 April 2019

Those dreams were sacked in the wee hours Tuesday, when a cozied Wilson announced his new Seahawks contract: a four-year, $140 million extension that will make him the highest-paid player in the league.

Wilson will also receive a $65 million signing bonus.

Earlier this month, Wilson set a deadline of midnight Monday for the sides to reach a long-term contract.

Wilson's annual average of $35 million per season eclipses Aaron Rodgers' extension signed a year ago.

Wilson's current $87.6 million, four-year deal was signed at the beginning of training camp in 2015 and was set to expire after next season. From King: "the contract would likely include devices to adjust future years of the deal based on how high the cap goes up year to year, or based on new revenue streams (gambling revenue, for example, or a TV contract that explodes)". I've got many more years to go and a lot more winning to do - we've got more Super Bowls to win. "Time for y'all to go to bed".

The Seattle Seahawks signed him to a record-breaking contract extension, and he celebrated by snuggling his love, Ciara, in bed! The deal reportedly came after several days of negotiation.

The dog continued to hold on for dear life, watching the workers as they figured out how to get the animal safely on board. Video that Payalaw posted on Facebook shows the shivering animal partially submerged in water, staring up at the workers.

"Oh yeah, if that's what I've got to do", Wilson said.

USA sports talk presenter Clay Travis noted the way Wilson delivered the news to his fans and likening it to some basketball showboating, tweeting: "Gotta say, Russell Wilson getting a $140 million contract and announcing it from bed with Ciara laying beside him feels like dunking and hanging on the rim". "Oh yeah, if that's what I've got to do", Russell said.

Sports blogger and podcaster Andrew Porter suggested the bumper payday for Wilson was simply what the Seahawks quarterback deserved, tweeting: "Russell Wilson should be the highest paid player in the NFL".

No more speculation about Wilson wanting to play elsewhere.

ESPN and the Seattle PI reported the terms of the deal. 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. "Your dedication, consistency, and commitment to the game never wavers". So, I'm really proud of him and excited for him no matter what.
