On Tuesday, ESPN reported that the Seattle Seahawks had signed quarterback Russell Wilson to a four-year, $140 million contract extension, making him the highest-paid player in the NFL. The 30-year-old signal-caller will make $35 million annually, topping the $33.5 million mark that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers set last season. Wilson's $65 million signing bonus also breaks Rodgers' previous record of $57.5 million. Early Tuesday morning, the ever-cheesy Wilson tweeted a video of himself lying topless in bed with his beaming wife, the pop star Ciara, telling fans, "Hey Seattle, we got a deal. Go, Hawks. But I'ma see y'all in the morning. Time for y'all to go to bed."
As a Seahawks fan, and a giant RW fan, I'm SO HAPPY!!!! He's such a great dude and totally deserves this.
