Ciara Celebrates Russell Wilson’s $140 Million Deal

Ciara Celebrates Russell Wilson’s $140 Million Deal

Russell's camp had imposed a deadline of midnight Monday (April 15) for Seattle to work out a deal and ESPN reports this extension was finished after four days of negotiations. National Football League insider Ian Rapoport tweeted that Wilson also has a no-trade stipulation in his contract, as well. He led Seattle to glory in 2014, helping the team win Super Bowl XLVIII over the Denver Broncos.

Best thing about the deal from Ciara's perspective: She can not justifiably be called Yoko Ono. "My job was to make sure of it, while doing the best deal possible". We didn't want to get to draft night three years from now and have his name in trade rumors. We know Cici's proud!

"You're getting Russell Wilson his prime now", Danny Kanell said on Tuesday's "Off the Bench". Miami also has the third-most cap space in the league and would have no problem extending Wilson for as long as he wanted to stay in Miami.

Wilson arguably has more of an affect on the players around him than any other quarterback, which helps to justify his ceiling.

But there is no escalator clause, although Wilson's salary will nevertheless remain the proverbial pig in the payroll python.

But Seattle showed past year that it's a team on the rise again after missing the playoffs in 2017.

Wilson's new contract will have a profound impact on the future of a handful of Seahawks players, most notably Frank Clark, Bobby Wagner and Jarran Reed.

However, by paying their quarterback $35 million per year, the Seahawks will also be strapped for cash.

"Hey Seattle, we got a deal", Wilson said from his bed, next to his wife, Ciara.

The worst thing about the deal, of course, is the effect to the rest of the roster under the NFL's hard cap. Even if he played out 2019 under his current deal, Seattle could have used the franchise tag if needed to keep him under contract through 2020 and 2021 at a reasonable price by quarterback standards. Wilson reportedly got a record $65 million signing bonus as well. Wilson addressed his fans letting them know that they could breathe easy as a deal was finally agreed to. It's part of the way for the Seahawks to get whole after blasting a magnum hole in the budget.

The Green Bay Packers signed Aaron Rodgers for $33.5 million a year and gave him $57.5 million to sign last year.
