Details of this new agreement between the athlete and the football team suggest that Wilson will go down in history as the highest paid athlete in NFL history. The is a four-year deal, $140 million extension that includes a $65 million signing bonus, according to ESPN. With that being said, this puts Wilson ahead of Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, and Matt Stafford, as far as earnings are concerned.
The contract allegedly took four days to negotiate, but will apparently lock the 30-year-old down with the Seahawks until the 2023 season. Wilson has been a part of the Seahawks team since the 2012 draft
