Russell Wilson is sticking around with the Seattle Seahawks as the highest paid player in the NFL.
Wilson posted a video on social media saying, "Seattle, we got a deal," shortly after agreeing to a US$140 million (NZ $207m), four-year extension with the Seahawks, his agent Mark Rodgers told The Associated Press.
Wilson's new deal runs through the 2023 season and includes a $65 million (NZ $96m) signing bonus, a no-trade clause and $107 million (NZ $158m) in guaranteed money.
Wilson's per year average of US$35 million (NZ $51m) tops Aaron Rodgers' average annual salary of $33.5 million (NZ $49.57m) as part of the $134 million (NZ $198m) extension he signed last year with the Green Bay Packers.
Wilson's current $87.6 million (NZ $128), four-year deal was signed at the beginning of training camp in 2015 and was set to expire after next season.
