Wilson gets $70 million fully guaranteed in year one.
Wilson is scheduled to make $17 million in 2019, and the four-year extension will keep him with Seattle through 2023. The Super Bowl-winning quarterback and undeniably odd dude commemorated the life event by posting a dark video from bed next to his wife, Ciara.
"Good night", says Ciara, adding, "Finally, you can go to sleep." which prompts Wilson to chuckle. According to Adam Schefter, he got $140 million over four years, and a $65 million signing bonus. Had the 'Hawks failed to hammer out an extension, Russell's camp said he wouldn't "revisit negotiations" in 2019, and he'd play out the past year of his contract. The team held leverage knowing it likely had at least three more seasons with Wilson under center.
Wilson, whose 100.3 career passer rating trails only Aaron Rodgers in league history, already holds the team record for career touchdown passes (196), and he owns the single-season records for passing yards (4,219), touchdowns (35) and completions (353).
Wilson's current $87.6 million, four-year deal was signed at the beginning of training camp in 2015 and was set to expire after next season. But as Prescott moves towards the $28 million per season range, one wonders if the Cowboys with their talented youthful roster can find a way to advance deeper in the playoffs than they have for so many years.
When asked about a new deal on Monday at the start of offseason workouts, Wentz left the contract discussions to his agent.
Since being drafted by the Hawks in 2012, the five-time Pro Bowler has led the Hawks to a Super Bowl victory during the 2013 season. He also ran only 67 times, a career low, as the improved running game and offensive line play allowed Wilson to stay in the pocket more often. He announced news of an agreement on Instagram. Jarran Reed, I know that's a guy that they really think is one of the core young leaders on the team (and) they really want to get him locked up. Your dedication, consistency & commitment to the game never wavers. So, I'm really proud of him and excited for him no matter what.
