Russell Wilson continues to win big on and off the field, and now wields the richest contract in NFL history. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback signed a four-year, $140 million contract extension with a $65 million signing bonus.
The News Tribune reports:
Russell Wilson’s deadline for getting a new, top-of-the-NFL contract from the Seahawks passed with midnight becoming Tuesday morning. About 45 minutes later, the franchise quarterback posted on his social-media account, from bed with his wife Ciara: “Hey, Seattle, we got a deal…Go Hawks.”
A league source confirmed to The News Tribune at 1:35 a.m. Tuesday the contract is worth $140 million in new money over four years with a $65 million signing bonus.
The contract has total guarantees of $107 million and includes a no-trade clause, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
