Russell Wilson & Ciara Cuddle Up After $140 Million Contract Extension

Russell Wilson becomes NFL's highest-paid player in blockbuster deadline deal

It all happened just 30 minutes before Wilson's deadline of midnight last night and resulted in the Seattle quarterback committing himself to the team for the next four years in return for the biggest contract in National Football League history.

Carson Wentz and Russell Wilson couldn't be any more different when it comes to their styles as signal callers, but they'll be forever linked after the Seahawks star quarterback agreed to a record-setting, four-year, $140 million deal. Per Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, the deal is a four-year extension that will make the total contract a five-year deal worth $157 million through the 2023 season.

Wilson's previous contract, the four-year, $87.6 million extension he signed in the summer of 2015, was set to expire after the upcoming season. He wanted certainty about his contract before the team got into its offseason workout program, which began Monday. He's a five-time Pro Bowler and he's won the Super Bowl with the Seahawks. There had been some building chatter about his potential departure from the franchise if a new deal wasn't met, but this officially dismisses that possibility altogether.

The average annual value of the contract, $35 million, pushes the 30-year old Wilson, past Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers as the highest-paid player in the league. Wilson's message was simple, "Hey, Seattle, we got a deal".

Coach Pete Carroll, also speaking at the end of the season, said a Wilson extension was "very much in our plans".

"Go Hawks", she said from bed with Wilson. Wilson's agent, Mark Rodgers, arrived at team headquarters last Friday to hammer out a deal, according to ESPN. The deal also includes a no-trade clause, a source told the outlet.

The 5-foot-11 Wilson threw for a career-high 35 touchdowns and matched his career low with seven interceptions.

Wilson is confirming the contract agreement on Twitter. Your dedication, consistency & commitment to the game never wavers.

"I know he's my husband and of course you're gonna think the world of your partner, but I really do believe he's one of the best ever to do it, and it's really cool to watch him on his journey", Ciara continued. So, I'm really proud of him and excited for him no matter what.
