Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson may have had a big win on the field during the Super Bowl, but he stands to have an even bigger win off the field.

Not all about the shoes.

Johnny getting deals.

Manning missed out on more than becoming the first quarterback to lead multiple franchises to Super Bowl championships. A second ring, marketers said, would have meant another $3 million to $5 million annually and catapulted him into an iconic group of athlete endorsers that includes Jordan, former soccer player David Beckham and golfer Tiger Woods.

No way in hell Russell Wilson takes 10M a year. That would be insulting of us to offer him so little


100 million in ten years insulting? If he sucks up all the cap then there would be nothing left but to insult the others. RW still gets a huge chunk I'm sure for all the 3 jerseys he would sell.
Hell yes that's insulting. That's 50% of what Flacco and Kaep are getting. How is that not insulting?

You're looking at this entirely the wrong way. What Russell makes through endorsments and whatever else is in no way factored into the contract we will or he deserves to be offered. I would be embarrassed for our franchise if we offered Wilson only 10M a year

The real money comes in endorsements with more rings the better and RW would have no problems getting tv deals for the NFL when his career is over. Hope RW wants to play with quality instead of Wal-Mart or Costco talent and understands real money can come after football but has to be a winner. Is he thinking long term or short term? I'm hoping 10 mil a year for ten years most guaranteed and he gets his huge shoe and soda deals while becoming a house hold name like Tiger Woods once was. RW has the gift to do that unlike Kap.

Mmmkay, you can sit down now. *pat on the head*

I'm just looking out for cap space and looking at the huge contracts we just handed out and the loss of Tate to keep Sherm and ET. Is it even possible to pay RW not to end up like the GB, bears, cowboys, or steelers. Flacco has been in the league for awhile before his huge contract and has been a keeper since the ravens got him. Agents like the way you think and yes would be a low ball but only to keep talent for RW that won't a chance to make those endorsement deals. If you read Manning could have lost 5 mill a year after SB 48. Tiger was worth almost 3/4 of a billion dollars before his cheating scandal? He didn't get that way from winnings. Yep that's right he was a winner and that's what endorsements pay big bucks for is winners.

I guess the alexander deal is just still fresh in my mind and had to lose hutch. I just remember that gut feeling we were going to suck and history has that thing of rearing its ugly head again.

Not saying this like its fact but i think he will go after the most money possible and i can understand a NFL players average career is 3 years he might take a little less or structure it in a way to keep players.

Look RW will get paid. He's a Top 7 QB in the league. He is better than Kaep and he just got paid. Now the salary cap is supposed to grow by 15-20M over the next 2 years and who knows beyond that. The money from endorsements is beer money compared to their NFL contracts. I am not going to worry about RW 20+M contract because we might not be able to bring in all the luxury free agents like we have in the past. We certainty will be able to develop draft day talent. I think that's why they were comfortable with letting some of the bloated contracts go this year.

JS and PC are not idiots. They have a plan in place and that means paying Wilson.

Jones and Alexander were on historic contracts and we still were going to work out Hutch without the poison pill coming into play

This is just the nature of the beast. When it gets time to sign russell it just becomes that much more important to draft well
