Seahawks Make Russell Wilson Highest Paid Player In NFL
Wilson's 4-year $140 million dollar deal with a reported $65 million signing bonus tops the former biggest of 4 years $134 with a $57.5 million signing bonus deal held by Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Wilson is now under contract with Seattle until 2023. That means any hopes he would be the Giants next QB are all but dashed. It turns out no matter how bad your superstar wife may want to be in New York and no matter how bad Giants' fans wanted you, an average salary around $35 million a year still wins out.
