It also stakes the 33-year-old’s career to the Broncos for the foreseeable future — he’s under contract through 2028 — as he tries to join John Elway and Peyton Manning in leading Denver to the Super Bowl plateau.
Quarterback Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos agreed to a reported five-year, $245 million contract extension Thursday, a deal that includes $165 million in guaranteed money, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The deal is the third-most lucrative contract in NFL history in terms of guaranteed money, with only Deshaun Watson’s $230 million and Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray’s $189.5 million outranking Wilson’s figure.
Wilson coming in under $50 million a year and not even sniffing Deshaun Watson’s guarantee number is just unequivocally bad for every other big quarterback contract (and, by extension, every other NFL player contract) to come.
Until the top-end quarterbacks start doing that, there is no chance NFL players see any meaningful progress toward the types of fully guaranteed deals their NBA and MLB counterparts automatically get.
Russell Wilson Broncos
On March 16, 2022, the Seahawks traded Wilson and a fourth-round pick to the Denver Broncos in exchange for two first-round picks, two second-round picks, a fifth-round pick, quarterback Drew Lock, defensive lineman Shelby Harris, and tight end Noah Fant.
Teammates said the trade was unavoidable, as Wilson broke with the team and “checked out” mid-season.
Seahawks chairman Jody Allen released a statement indicating that the trade was initiated by Wilson.
The Seahawks said that Wilson did not approve of the team firing offensive line coach Mike Solari and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.
Wilson said that while he did not initiate the trade, the decision was mutual.
