However, he had a great showing overall during the 2014 season and this was huge for the Seahawks who made it to their second consecutive Super Bowl.

Russell Wilson’s deal does not have the most longevity – that distinction goes to Jay Cutler and his seven-year, $126.7 million pact with the Chicago Bears. That group also includes the likes of Miami’s Ryan Tannehill, who re-signed for $96 million back in May. Loves working with Russell Wilson – and really admires and respects how the quarterback flew to Florida to attend the funeral of Graham’s mentor and close friend in May. Stephen D. Riley and Perry Green of the AFRO Sports Desk debates the question.
Conversely, the addition of Graham could loosen things up inside the 20 for Lynch, adding to his TD total. Because if not, he’s [Pete Carroll] going to show a highlight in the team meeting room of somebody grabbing the ball away, and that just doesn’t happen to me.
Fellow rapper T.I., who has collaborated with both Future and Ciara, voiced his opinion in an Instagram post, saying “I’d go da (expletive) OFF bro!!!” The Seahawks have become known as the premier defense in the league and have already seen top players depart to start their own dynasty elsewhere – Byron Maxwell being the most recent to leave the Legion of Boom. If your signal caller comes up big in January then he needs to be paid like it. He also changes the way defenses have to defend Seattle’s other receivers.
Now it appears Wilson deserves an assist for keeping a franchise player. He inquired about whether or not Wilson discussed his role in Baby Future’s life with the Dirty Sprite 2 rapper, and noted that he did not agree with the situation.
While refining his blocking skills could help Seattle’s offense as a whole, it won’t do Graham’s fantasy owners any favors. His new average of $21.9 million puts him just a shade behind the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers ($22M) for the highest QB salary in the NFL.
It’s a simple truth: there’s not enough money in the salary-capped NFL for teams to keep all of their stars. Ultimately, contract negotiations are not about “how good” a player is; they are about where a player is contractually at the time of negotiation and the leverage points for each side.
The “Vanity Fair 2015 worldwide Best Dressed List” is officially out and you will never believe what hunk has landed a spot on the coveted list – Russell Wilson!
“I remember when I was younger, my Pops told me, ‘You’re going to be something special, and not just because you’re my child.’ He saw in me that I’m a fighter, that I’ll fight no matter what”.
“Even if I didn’t make it here, I was going to try to make it somewhere else in the NFL”.
