Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a four-year, $140 million contract extension that makes him the highest-paid player in the NFL.
Wilson will also receive a $65 million signing bonus.
Wilson is contractually tied to the Seahawks through the 2023 season.
Wilson\'s annual average of $35 million per season eclipses Aaron Rodgers\' extension signed last year. Rodgers earns $33.5 million per season and had a $57.5 million signing bonus.
Wilson\'s deal also includes a no trade clause.
\"Hey Seattle, we got a deal,\" a sleepy-sounding Wilson says while lying in bed next to his wife Ciara. \"Go Hawks. But I\'ma see ya\'ll in the morning. Time for ya\'ll to go to bed.\"
