Source: Seahawks make Wilson top-paid in NFL

The Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson have reached agreement on a four-year, $140 million extension that includes a $65 million signing bonus and makes the quarterback the highest-paid player in the NFL, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Tuesday morning.

The four-year extension, which was signed and announced on Tuesday, keeps the 30-year-old Wilson with the Seahawks through the 2023 season.

“Russ has been a huge factor in everything that has happened, and this allows us to stay on track with continuing to push to find that consistency,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “Russell is a unique player, a unique competitor. It’s rare the way he’s just so consistently connected to competing and battling. To keep that factor as part of the program is just a real positive for our fans and for everyone.”
