He has a deal.
Quarterback Russell Wilson announced that he and the Seahawks reached a contract agreement in a video posted on their Twitter account on Tuesday morning. It is an extension of 4 years, $ 140 million in new money and includes a signing bonus of $ 65 million, according to ESPN. He makes Wilson the highest-paid player in the NFL.
"Hey, Seattle, we have an agreement," Pro Bowler said five times as he crouched in bed with his wife Ciara just before 1 a.m. Pacific time. Both he and his wife said "Go Hawks" before going to sleep.
"I'll see you all in the morning," Wilson said. "It's time for everyone to go to bed."
He and agent Mark Rodgers set a deadline of April 15 as the final change to address a new contract for Wilson, who was entering the final year of his current agreement.
