Russell Wilson Never Wanted Seahawks To Trade Him, Agent Confirms

Russell Wilson Never Wanted Seahawks To Trade Him, Agent Confirms

The four-year deal is worth a reported $140 million and includes a $65 million signing bonus, making Wilson and his family very happy.

Russell, who is now "contractually tied" to the Seahawks through the 2023 season, surpasses Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers "richest" contract, which included a new-money $35.5 million annual average per season and a $57.5 million signing bonus.

Wilson's annual average of $35 million per season eclipses Aaron Rodgers' extension signed previous year. National Football League insider Ian Rapoport tweeted that Wilson also has a no-trade stipulation in his contract, as well. He posted a video in bed with his wife, singer Ciara, and said, "Hey, Seattle". There are few players who I'd want to see become the highest paid player in the league more than Wilson. "Time for y'all to go to bed", before the two ended the short video.

Do you think this is a good strategy to map out the saga instead of ruing what appears to be a patched together trilogy? Whether it was an accident or not, we now know that a new LEGO Star Wars game is in the pipeline.

The length of the extension goes beyond the expiration of Carroll's current contract, and will come after a new collective bargaining agreement with the players union.

Wilson's pay raise is significant.

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.

His rescuers managed to pull him up on the platform using a rope tied around his body and gave him water and food. Oil workers spotted the dog, who they have named Boonrod , so they called her and she swam to the platform.

He'll make $157 million in the next five years, including the $17 million he was set to earn in 2019. "Oh yeah, if that's what I've got to do", Russell said.

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. The team held leverage knowing it likely had at least three more seasons with Wilson under center. (Stafford, by comparison, ranks 22nd at 88.4.) Wilson won a Super Bowl ring back in 2014 and his team is 75-36-1 with him under center, so extending him at 30 years old merely keeps a good thing going. Without Clark, Reed's ability to get to the quarterback would be even more important, and he could get paid like it. He has passed for 25,624 yards with 212 total touchdowns while completing 64.1 percent of his passes. Your dedication, consistency & commitment to the game never wavers.
