Russell Wilson’s new deal with the Seattle Seahawks now makes him the highest-paid player in the NFL. The star quarterback just signed a four-year, $140M contract with the team, extending his time with the squad to 2023. Wilson has already received $65M as a signing bonus, ESPN reports.
The NFL baller took to Twitter Tuesday morning with wife, singer Ciara, to confirm he’d be returning to the Seahawks, saying, “Hey Seattle, we got a deal”; Cici followed up with “Go Hawks!”
Prior to this deal, Wilson signed a $87.5 million contract in 2015 that was set to expire by year’s end. He was scheduled to make $17 million for the remainder of 2019.
