After Russell Wilson’s huge deal, speculation turns to Patrick Mahomes’ next contract

After Russell Wilson’s huge deal, speculation turns to Patrick Mahomes’ next contract

National Football League quarterback Russell Wilson announced that he has reached a contract extension with the Seattle Seahawks, and he did so at 3:44 a.m. with his wife Ciara lying next to him on his Instagram and Twitter accounts. Instead of calling his bluff, the Seahawks gave him what he asked for.

Peter King of NBC Sports reported Monday that Wilson had hoped to get a contract that didn't have a set amount of money he would be paid. He posted a video in bed with his wife, singer Ciara, and said, "Hey, Seattle". "Go Hawks. But I'ma see ya'll in the morning".

Coach Pete Carroll, also speaking at the end of the season, said a Wilson extension was "very much in our plans". Miami also has the third-most cap space in the league and would have no problem extending Wilson for as long as he wanted to stay in Miami. He won a Super Bowl in his second season and got back to the championship game a year later before making the one major mistake of his career that will linger until he wins another title, throwing a goal line interception in the final minute when the Seahawks had a chance to take the lead on New England.

The deal was apparently finished after four days of negotiations between the Seahawks and Wilson's agent, Mark Rodgers, who arrived at the team's headquarters Friday.

Wilson and the Seahawks shattered those rumors at that Wilson-imposed deadline by reportedly agreeing to a record-setting contract extension early Tuesday morning. 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. According to NFL Network, $107 million of the deal is guaranteed and it has a no-trade clause.

"Half of last year's 12 playoff teams got there by having a first-contract quarterback at the top of their depth chart".

Following the news, Ciara took to Instagram to share a pic of Wilson in action on the field, along with a sweet caption. The heart of his career will be played out right where it started.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for a career-high 35 touchdowns in 2018. "Your dedication, consistency, and commitment to the game never wavers".

"I know he's my husband and of course you're gonna think the world of your partner, but I really do believe he's one of the best ever to do it, and it's really cool to watch him on his journey", Ciara continued. "I'm excited about that".
