Russell Wilson is now officially the NFL’s highest-paid player, having signed a four-year, $140M contract with the Seattle Seahawks yesterday (April 17) with his family by his side.

Wilson took to Instagram to share the moment with fans, first thanking his agent for securing the bag and, more important, being a father figure in the quarterback’s life after his own father passed away.
