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

With franchise tags the Seahawks could keep Russell Wilson through 2021

Great news for Seattle Seahawks fans as their star quarterback has agreed to a deal that will reportedly make him the highest paid player in the NFL. The deal comes with a no-trade clause, $107 million in guaranteed money, and a massive $65 million signing bonus (which also sets a record, according to ESPN.) This deal surpasses the record-setting contract Aaron Rodgers signed with the Green Bay Packers previous year.

Russell's camp had imposed a deadline of midnight Monday (April 15) for Seattle to work out a deal and ESPN reports this extension was finished after four days of negotiations. Over the next four years, Wilson will make an average of $35 million a year. Wilson showed up for the first day and by the end of the night was posting a video with wife Ciara announcing the agreement. There are few players who I'd want to see become the highest paid player in the league more than Wilson.

Wilson's deal came after lengthy negotiations between his agent and the Seahawks management and eventually saw the player compromise on his original demand to have his contract tied to a portion of the National Football League salary cap - an unprecedented stipulation in an National Football League player deal.

Carroll said Jody Allen, the chair of the Seahawks following the death of her brother, Paul Allen, last fall, was instrumental in getting the deal finished.

Russell Wilson and Ciara have millions of reasons to celebrate.

"Russell's goal and his hope was that he would continue his career with the Seahawks and continue to bring championships to this town", Wilson's agent Mark Rodgers said. He's also coming off of what may have been his best individual year, so the extension is coming at a good time.

See more on Wilson and Ciara below. 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. He has thrown for 25,624 yards, 196 touchdowns and 63 interceptions in his Seahawks career, leading the team to the playoffs in six of his seven seasons. He has started all 112 games he has played for the Seahawks.

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. "I'm excited about that", Wilson said.
