Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Lands record-setting extension

Wilson reached agreement Tuesday with the Seahawks on a four-year, $140 million contract extension, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Though Wilson set a deadline of midnight Monday for reaching a new extension, the two sides were willing to negotiate until the early hours of Tuesday and ultimately consummated a record-setting deal. Wilson's contract is worth an average of $35 million from 2020 through 2023, including a league-record $65 million signing bonus. The 30-year-old's deal also includes a no-trade clause, likely ensuring that he finishes out his prime years in Seattle.
