What Russell Wilson's historic extension means for Rams, Jared Goff

With franchise tags the Seahawks could keep Russell Wilson through 2021

With franchise tags the Seahawks could keep Russell Wilson through 2021

It all happened just 30 minutes before Wilson's deadline of midnight last night and resulted in the Seattle quarterback committing himself to the team for the next four years in return for the biggest contract in National Football League history.

"Hey Seattle, we got a deal", the star signal-caller said, as Ciara rested her head on his chest, to his 3.6 million Instagram followers and 5.4 million Twitter followers. Instead of calling his bluff, the Seahawks gave him what he asked for. Wilson showed up for the first day and by the end of the night was posting a video with wife Ciara announcing the agreement.

Sanders Leads Biden in New Poll of Democratic 2020 Contenders
The earliest return released yesterday, for 2009, was done by hand, which may indicate that the Sanders did the taxes themselves. Representative Tulsi Gabbard, and Andrew Yang, a former tech executive - are relying chiefly on those small-dollar donors.

Wilson had said at the end of last season that he would be comfortable going into the final year of his current deal if need be. It was the second year of his career that Wilson posted a quarterback rating over 110 (2015 was the other season that happened). The team held leverage knowing it likely had at least three more seasons with Wilson under center.

And Seahawks fans will be rejoicing that they will get to see more brilliant plays like this in the next four years. But as Prescott moves towards the $28 million per season range, one wonders if the Cowboys with their talented youthful roster can find a way to advance deeper in the playoffs than they have for so many years.

Officials are now trying to determine how much of the cathedral is structurally sound. Philippe Lefebvre plays the organ at Notre Dame cathedral in Paris in 2013.

In his career, Wilson has thrown for 25,624 yards, 196 touchdowns and 63 interceptions. The Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger could get a new contract soon, too, as may Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota - depending on how their respective teams (the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans) feel about them.

"They basically took money that would've been in base salaries and put it into the signing bonus", Pelissero said of Wilson's deal. Ian Rapoport reported that $107 million of the deal is guaranteed. He also ran only 67 times, a career low, as the improved run game and offensive line play allowed Wilson to stay in the pocket more and scramble for his life less. With that around the corner, Wilson and his agent, Mark Rodgers, set an April 15 deadline for a new deal. Your dedication, consistency & commitment to the game never wavers. The hardest working man I know. "I'm excited about that".
