Agent: Russell Wilson’s new Seahawks deal sets NFL record 🏈

Gregg Bell, writing for The News Tribune

Agent Mark Rodgers confirmed to The News Tribune at 1:35 a.m. Tuesday the contract is worth $140 million in new money over four years, with a $65 million signing bonus.

That $35 million per year makes Wilson’s the richest contract in NFL history, as he had sought and the Seahawks had planned for their franchise and Super Bowl-winning quarterback all along.

I don’t care how much they paid the guy, I’m just glad they paid the guy. Now, hopefully, he doesn’t post any more weird videos from his bed on social media.

Go Hawks!
