Russell Wilson Agrees To Four-Year, $140M Extension With Seahawks

Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson Back to the future.  Corky Trewin Seattle Seahawks

"You're getting Russell Wilson his prime now", Danny Kanell said on Tuesday's "Off the Bench".

See more on Wilson and Ciara below. No more rumblings of a bigger market for Wilson to call home.

"Hey Seattle, we got a deal", a sleepy-sounding Wilson says while lying in bed next to his wife Ciara. Wilson had a strong 2018 season, finishing with his second best completion percentage (65.6) of his National Football League career and his highest passer rating (110.9). From King: "the contract would likely include devices to adjust future years of the deal based on how high the cap goes up year to year, or based on new revenue streams (gambling revenue, for example, or a TV contract that explodes)". The team announced the signing on Tuesday afternoon. "Russell is a unique player, a unique competitor". Then we'll see what happens after that.

There are no workarounds for the facts that Wilson has the most wins by a quarterback in his first seven seasons in NFL history, and that his career QB rating of 100.3 is second in league annals only to Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, who is 35. Wilson's previous $87.6 million, four-year deal was signed at the beginning of training camp in 2015 and was set to expire after next season. 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. ESPN reports that the deal was finalized around the midnight deadline Wilson had imposed and came at the end of a grueling four-day negotiation process.

"She was involved, and her support really allowed the guys to function at the level where they were able to get this done", Carroll said. But like Wilson, Clark and Wagner, he is set to hit free agency after the 2019 season.

2020 candidate Bernie Sanders releases 10 years of tax returns
He has previously released his 2014 tax return and published it on his website, which included a full list of itemized deductions. The campaign did not say how much was given in that case. "These tax returns show that our family has been fortunate".

ESPN and the Seattle PI reported the terms of the deal.

But Seattle showed past year that it's a team on the rise again after missing the playoffs in 2017. "You're always the first person in, and the last person out". He's also coming off of what may have been his best individual year, so the extension is coming at a good time. He has started all 112 games he has played for the Seahawks.

The agreement is making him reportedly the richest man in the NFL. Your dedication, consistency & commitment to the game never wavers.

Wilson was understandably more than pleased with the role his agent Mark Rodgers played in landing him his huge new contract, and he showed that appreciation with a public tweet of thanks. We didn't want to get to draft night three years from now and have his name in trade rumors. This helps solidify that.

Under Wilson, the Seahawks are 75-36-1 in the regular season, reaching the playoffs in six of his seven seasons and winning the Super Bowl after the 2013 season. "I'm excited about that".
