Russell Wilson is staying in Seattle.
The QB who has guided the Seahawks to two straight Super Bowls has inked a 4-year, $87.6 million extension to stay with the club according to Peter King of the MMQB.
The deal features a $31 million signing bonus (gotta be a record for a QB, right?) and $60 million in guaranteed money.
Great news for Seattle fans, who don’t have to worry about this drama all season. Bad news for teams without a QB who were hoping to have a shot at Wilson in two years.
Wilson’s deal averages $21.9 million a year, which is barely less than the $22 million a year Aaron Rodgers is getting.
