Russell Wilson and Ciara make a major announcement

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson runs out of the pocket against the Dallas Cowboys during the first half of the NFC wild-card NFL football game in Arlington Texas Saturday Jan. 5 2019

His side had given the Seahawks a deadline of midnight Monday for a new contract, and according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, did not intend to revisit negotiations this year if there wasn't a deal by that point.

"Hey, Seattle, we got a deal", says a shirtless and tired-sounding Wilson, his wife resting on his shoulder, in a video posted on Twitter. Instead of calling his bluff, the Seahawks gave him what he asked for.

Wilson's per year average of $35 million tops Aaron Rodgers' average annual salary of $33.5 million as part of the $134 million extension he signed last year with the Green Bay Packers.

U.S. sports talk presenter Clay Travis noted the way Wilson delivered the news to his fans and likening it to some basketball showboating, tweeting: "Gotta say, Russell Wilson getting a $140 million contract and announcing it from bed with Ciara laying beside him feels like dunking and hanging on the rim".

Russell Wilson just got PAID.

"Go Hawks", she said from bed with Wilson.

The 30-year-old Wilson was set to make $17 million in 2019, the final season of the four-year, $87.6 million extension he signed in the summer of 2015.

"They basically took money that would've been in base salaries and put it into the signing bonus", Pelissero said of Wilson's deal. He and the Seahawks agreed to a four-year, $140 million extension.

They were words Seahawks fans had waited to hear since Seattle's playoff loss to Dallas in January, though it had seemed increasingly unlikely as the days ticked away toward Wilson's deadline to have a deal done by the end of the first day of offseason workouts.

In his career, Wilson has thrown for 25,624 yards, 196 touchdowns and 63 interceptions. Wentz is projected to snag a deal of five years, $146 million with $50 million guaranteed at signing, along the lines of what Jimmy Garrapolo received from the 49ers. The hardest working man I know. The team also added C.J. Anderson as a power back and Jesse James as a co-starter at tight end, but more help is expected among the eight picks in next week's draft. The heart of his career will be played out right where it started.

He's also been extremely durable, never missing a game while playing through significant knee, ankle and shoulder injuries. "I'm excited about that".
