‘Hey Seattle, we got a deal’: Russell Wilson re-signs with Seahawks

Russell Wilson won't sign with Seattle Seahawks after self-imposed deadline

Earlier this month, Wilson set a deadline of midnight Monday for the sides to reach a long-term contract.

Carson Wentz and Russell Wilson couldn't be any more different when it comes to their styles as signal callers, but they'll be forever linked after the Seahawks star quarterback agreed to a record-setting, four-year, $140 million deal. However, this new contract now replaces the final year of his previous extension that will run through the 2023 campaign while making him the highest-paid player in National Football League history. Over the next four years, Wilson will make an average of $35 million a year.

Russell Wilson could be on his way out, but that's only if there's a team insane enough to pay an incredibly high price for the former Super Bowl champ. Seattle has also reached the playoffs 6 of the 7 years Wilson has been under center, as TMZ points out. There had been some building chatter about his potential departure from the franchise if a new deal wasn't met, but this officially dismisses that possibility altogether.

To recall, the tag line for the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T was " The Speed You Need " and " Unlock The Speed " respectively. If you remember, OnePlus 6 was launched on May 16 last year globally, hence the date of May 14 is nearly one year later.

"Russell's goal and his hope was that he would continue his career with the Seahawks and continue to bring championships to this town", Wilson's agent Mark Rodgers said.

Since the Seahawks' contract with Percy Harvin in 2013, they have put a clause in contracts that guaranteed all or parts of the second year base if the player is on the roster five days after the Super Bowl. He has the highest yearly average salary at $35 million per 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", coach Pete Carroll said in a statement from the team announcing the deal. For starters, it means the Seahawks will most likely remain at the very least competitive for the next five years. The Seahawks have also been getting him at a bargain from pretty much day one. They certainly have the draft picks to send over with three first rounders this year and two in 2020. This helps solidify that. "Go Hawks! But I'ma see ya'll in the morning. I'm excited about that", Wilson said.
