"Hey Seattle, we got a deal", said Wilson while cuddling in the sheets with his wife. Instead of calling his bluff, the Seahawks gave him what he asked for.

The deal comes with a no-trade clause, $107 million in guaranteed money, and a massive $65 million signing bonus (which also sets a record, according to ESPN.) This deal surpasses the record-setting contract Aaron Rodgers signed with the Green Bay Packers a year ago.

Wilson will earn $17 million in 2019, the same amount he was set to earn in what was the final year of the four-year, $87.6 million extension he signed in 2015.

Russell Wilson and Ciara have millions of reasons to celebrate. Not long after, ESPN and NFL Network reported that the deal will keep Wilson in Seattle through the 2023 season. "Go Hawks. But I'ma see ya'll in the morning".

How to help rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral
Sister Madeleine, a Dominican nun from Paris , was visibly upset when she arrived to inspect Notre Dame, a day after the blaze. A spokesman for the cathedral told AFP that the wooden structure supporting the roof was being gutted by the blaze.

Despite that ransom of potential talent, Schneider and Carroll knew they had the rarest commodity in team sports, a premium franchise QB, and would go to their football graves answering the question, "What were you thinking?!" if Wilson were dealt. They have two first-round picks this year thanks to the OBJ deal and should have no problem throwing in one more for one of the three NFC quarterbacks who won a Super Bowl in the past eight years. That deal had a $57.5 million signing bonus with $98.2 million in total guarantees. He has the highest yearly average salary at $35 million per season.

Wilson and the Seahawks shattered those rumors at that Wilson-imposed deadline by reportedly agreeing to a record-setting contract extension early Tuesday morning. He wanted certainty about his contract before the team got into its offseason workout program, which began Monday. He threw 35 touchdowns to seven interceptions in 2018, while completing 65.6 percent of his pass attempts. He also ran only 67 times, a career low, as the improved run game and offensive line play allowed Wilson to stay in the pocket more and scramble for his life less. "Your dedication, consistency, and commitment to the game never wavers".

Wilson's new deal was going to have to top the extension signed by Rodgers before the start of last season.

"At the same time, and I know Dak wants this, you want a supporting cast", Jones said on a recent interview with ESPN Radio. "I'm excited about that".
