How did Russell Wilson celebrate a $140 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks? He made a video. Then he went to sleep, we assume.
Wilson and the Seahawks finalized the four-year deal, which makes the quarterback the highest paid player in the league, late Monday.
Not long after, Wilson tweeted a video from his bed, with wife Ciara snuggling up next to him.
"Hey, Seattle, we got a deal," Wilson said.
“Go ’Hawks,” Ciara chimes in, with a small giggle.
"Go ’Hawks. But, I'm gonna see y'all in the morning," Wilson continues.
Ciara is obviously happy, although part of that could be because “finally we can go to sleep.”
Atlanta-native Ciara tweeted her love and pride for her husband Tuesday.
Wilson’s per year average of $35 million tops Aaron Rodgers’ average annual salary of $33.5 million and Matt Ryan’s $30 million-a-year extension he signed in 2018.
Ryan’s deal pays the Falcons’ quarterback $150 million over five seasons — $100 million guaranteed.
