Ciara's Hubby Russell Wilson Becomes Highest-Paid NFL Player in History

With franchise tags the Seahawks could keep Russell Wilson through 2021

The quarterback and the Seattle Seahawks had worked out a contract extension, and it's one for the history books, as he's now the highest paid player in the NFL.

Tweeting a video from bed, Wilson said on the attached video, "Hey, Seattle, we got a deal", before noting that he would talk more about it after he woke up. Instead of calling his bluff, the Seahawks gave him what he asked for. They won't be able to pay their other core players the way they did when Wilson was on his rookie deal years ago, and we've seen the implications of that. "We got a deal", Ciara, who's snuggled up next to him, adds sleepily, "Go Hawks". Wilson closes the 20-second announcement with, "I'll see you all in the morning, time for you all to go to bed". The team held leverage knowing it likely had at least three more seasons with Wilson under center.

The deal was apparently finished after four days of negotiations between the Seahawks and Wilson's agent, Mark Rodgers, who arrived at the team's headquarters Friday. He has the highest yearly average salary at $35 million per season.

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. The Dallas Cowboys' Dak Prescott is in line for a new deal, while the Eagles are already working toward signing Carson Wentz to a long-term deal, according to GM Howie Roseman. In 2018, he threw for 3,448 yards and 35 touchdowns-a career high-on just 427 passing attempts.

After winning the role as starting QB for Seattle in 2012, Wilson helped lead the Seahawks to the team's first Super Bowl victory in 2014, dominating the Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos 43-8 (Denver would go on to win in Manning's final year in 2015). Though he's played through various injuries in his career, he's never missed a start since his rookie year, and he's played at a superlative level despite frightful offensive line play through most of his career, and some highly limited passing concepts. He's trying to figure out at every turn how he can be a great player, and he has never wavered, he has never taken a step back from that at any time, never missed an opportunity to step up to the challenges in front of him, because he's always on ready. "I'm excited about that", Wilson said.
