According to USA Today, Willson tweeted, 'Hey, Seattle, we got a deal.' while lying in bed with his wife Ciara. "Go Hawks! But, I'm gonna see y'all in the morning". It will be even more so on Seahawks' front office to build a team around Wilson that he can lead back to the promised land.
Under Wilson, the Seahawks are 75-36-1 in the regular season, reaching the playoffs in six of his seven seasons and winning the Super Bowl after the 2013 season. At $27 million a season for five years, it was quite the investment in a player who hadn't yet broken into an elite tier at his position. 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.
In his career, Wilson has thrown for 25,624 yards, 196 touchdowns and 63 interceptions.
And with his new contract done, Wilson has the chance to play his entire career with one team. Wilson reportedly got a record $65 million signing bonus as well. The Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger could get a new contract soon, too, as may Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota - depending on how their respective teams (the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans) feel about them. Though he's played through various injuries in his career, he's never missed a start since his rookie year, and he's played at a superlative level despite frightful offensive line play through most of his career, and some highly limited passing concepts. "Your dedication, consistency, and commitment to the game never wavers". The hardest working man I know! "I'm excited about that", Wilson said.
