Seahawks make Russell Wilson highest paid player in NFL history

Recommended Posts

Wilson had all the leverage. He was going to get 135 mill over the next 4 years with the franchise tags and they would lose free agents like Clark and Wagner or have to pay them top market value

 

Wilson will still be free in another 4 years

Bottom line is that you pay elite players.  I was honestly expecting it to be all guaranteed so it would appear Seattle won the structure/precedent battle there.

He got a 65 mill signing bonus and Seattle met an unrealistic deadline. 

 

We also need to see the actual terms. I'd bet he gets a massive amount over the next 18 months or so. 

 

I don't think Wilson was bluffing(neither did Seattle)

I seem to recall posters claiming they would release him.

Wilson was another one, it was clear right away he was a great QB. Early on people who didn't know what they were talking about thought the defense and running game were carrying him.

Wilson has been one of my favorite QBs to watch right from the start.  That little spin move he has to escape the pocket is art.  I would kill for Mariota to find some of Wilson's awareness and escapability.
