According to a number of sources, including the National Football League network and ESPN, the deal is for four years at a whopping $140 million - the most lucrative in National Football League history.
The alluring sight of Russell Wilson tormenting opposing defenses alongside Saquon Barkley began to emerge in the minds of demoralized Big Blue fans this offseason, as trickling tidbits signaled the 30-year-old could be the one - rather than an unproven quarterback prospect in next week's draft - to replace the longtime face of the franchise. Half of the $140 million is fully guaranteed.
Wilson was set to enter the final year of his four-year, $87.6 million deal where he was set to make roughly $25.3 million for the 2019 campaign. You can expect that Wentz, who will not want to be paid less than the 49ers star, to fetch a new deal in the five years, $155 million range, with a $50 million signing bonus.
The important thing here is the Seahawks retain their most valuable asset and have Wilson until he turns 35.
Going into next season, the Seahawks have the second-most cap room in the league. They can still do deals.
They have the flexibility to do extensions with Frank Clark, Bobby Wagner and Jarran Reed. Some think the Kansas City Chiefs are interested.
Russell Wilson could be on his way out, but that's only if there's a team insane enough to pay an incredibly high price for the former Super Bowl champ. He led the Seahawks to victory in Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014 and narrowly missed winning a second Super Bowl the next year, when his team fell to Tom Brady's New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX. Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones still paid Demarcus Lawrence $21 million a year, and he will find a way to give Amari Cooper more than $16 million a year.
Wilson's per year average of $35 million tops Aaron Rodgers' average annual salary of $33.5 million as part of the $134 million extension he signed last year with the Green Bay Packers. The window that first opened when Wilson arrived could be open again after Seattle went 10-6 and reached the playoffs last season in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year.
