The Seattle Seahawks are about to reward star QB Russell Wilson for three straight years of dominant football.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports, via sources involved in the situation, Russell Wilson is expected to become the NFL’s highest-paid QB when the Seahawks sign him to a long-term extension in the coming offseason.
Seattle has built one of the NFL’s deepest and most talented rosters while devoting less than $1 million per year to the starting quarterback since Wilson was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2012 NFL draft.
Aaron Rodgers is currently highest paid QB per year, with his five-year, $110 million contract averaging $22 million. While Wilson’s rookie contract runs through the 2015 season, the organization intends to pay him now rather than wait.
The Seahawks already traded WR Percy Harvin and his bloated contract and extended the back-end of contracts for defensive starters Cliff Avril and K.J. Wright.
