Seahawks announce deal, Russell Wilson says he has more Super Bowls to win

Russell Wilson is officially under contract to the Seahawks for five more seasons, and he thinks he’s going to win not just one more Super Bowl, but multiple Super Bowls.

In comments published by the team, Wilson said he thinks he’ll win Super Bowls, plural, in Seattle.

“For me, for my family and for [agent] Mark [Rodgers], we love Seattle, and it’s the place I want to be,” Wilson said. “I’ve always wanted to be. When I first got drafted in 2012, I wanted to be here forever. This helps solidify that. I’ve got many more years to go and a lot more winning to do—we’ve got more Super Bowls to win. I’m excited about that.”

Despite some talk that Wilson wanted out, coach Pete Carroll praised Wilson for being consistently committed to everything the team is trying to do.

“We’re all really pleased that we were able to take the next step to stay together and keep this moving,” Carroll said. “Russ has been a huge factor in everything that has happened, and this allows us to stay on track with continuing to push to find that consistency. Russell is a unique player, a unique competitor. It’s rare the way he’s just so consistently connected to competing and battling. To keep that factor as part of the program is just a real positive for our fans and for everyone. We’re all fortunate to see this happen.”

Wilson and Carroll have won one Super Bowl together and just missed a second. They may win another one together. Or more than one.

  1. Making 3x Brady’s salary and won’t have close to 1/3 SB rings to show for it. We’re the luckiest fans in the world across the country…

  2. Not likely. Qb’s who consume a large amount of cap space typically don’t win super bowls. That’s one of the reasons the patriots have been so successful

  3. The 1 year dynasty could have had two Super Bowl wins but we all know what happened in their last appearance 😉

  4. Despite some talk that Wilson wanted out,
    ============================================

    Which was completely media manufactured for ratings and internet hits.

  5. Wilson doesn’t get much credit for approaching every aspect of things the right way – including this deal – where he never even hinted at a holdout.

    RW not getting much love on these boards, but a few things to consider – – the guy gets in zero trouble, has no conflict w coaches, shows up in shape every year, and hasn’t missed a game in his career. Those who still dub him a ‘scrambling QB’, just haven’t watched him play the last few years. 35 tds against 7 picks last year – and he makes plays in the 4th quarter.

    It’s a lot of dough, no doubt – but if we all had to guess as to whether the cap would go up or down, up is much more likely given all the new deep-pocketed TV/Streaming buyers out there. This is a deal the Hawks had to make imo, and 4 more years feels like a reasonable length of time to me. I’m good with it.

  6. He seems to believe that he can pass and catch the ball by himself unlike a certain model’s husband.

  7. Better hit big in the draft as the only thing Seattle can afford will be rookie contracts to surround 35Mill man. Good luck with that

  8. Seattle had to pay him. Top 10 QB’s aren’t growing in a field.

    Within 2-3 years he won’t be the highest paid unless the salary cap is reduced.

    The Seahawks were stuck.

    Not as long as Brady is around…
    ++++++++++++
    Not as long as Goodell is around you meant. Let’s see how many teams the Patriots play coming off bye weeks. The Eagles played four last year. The Patriots have played two the last four seasons combined.

  10. I wouldn’t have paid him that much but I don’t have to pay his salary. They went to SB’s on their defense and it doesn’t look like they will have that again anytime soon.

  11. Hahahahaha! In your dreams buddy. How many of their four picks this year will be busts? Three or four?

  12. He just cut the hamstrings of the franchise, how does he think he’s going to win a Super Bowl now? lol

  13. “Making 3x Brady’s salary and won’t have close to 1/3 SB rings to show for it. We’re the luckiest fans in the world across the country…”

    How much does kraft invest in brady’s business though?

  14. Sounds kind of similar to the promise that a politician will balance the federal budget AND give taxpayers the biggest tax cut in history. After paying him his salary, Penny-pnching Mode will have a hard time using the remaining balance to build a SB team around him.

  15. we’ve got more Super Bowls to win

    That made me laugh. Maybe he meant more Super Bowls to throw game-ending INTs.

  16. Or he won’t win any because football is a team sport and he didn’t leave enough money for the rest of the team.

    Flush with cash and financial security, Wilson feels like superman
    +++
    So would I, and everyone on here, with that kind of money over the next 4-5 years.

    20+ million this year. Then he gets a 15 million dollar raise. His agent did good!

    And the agent is making more from Wislon’s contract to.

    You’re such a homer(in a good way). Obscene amount of money for 4 or 5 years work. Pass it on to the ticket holder.

  19. He isn’t winning any titles with that contract and seeing as the Hawks will probably have to drop a defenseman because of his contract, good luck with that Seattle.

  20. The part that makes me laugh is that the only reason QBs making big money hurts their team is because of the salary cap.
    The cap was created so owners could make more money.
    So when Wilson gets paid in a system that has an un-American device meant to hold down wages, people STILL criticize the player.
    Shouldn’t the players be able to make 100 million if that’s the market? Are we offended if Jerry Jones makes $320 million this year?

  21. I think Russell Wilson is one of the top 3-4 qbs in the league. What he accomplished behind a line that consistently got him beaten into mincemeat was pretty amazing to watch. That being said, I had gotten the distinct impression that Seattle was in rebuild mode, shedding as many of their (admittedly aging) defensive foundation as they have. I understood the jettisoning of talent to get younger and start the re-build, but in that context I don’t understand this signing. They should have traded him to Jacksonville and turned him into first round picks.

    So next year?

    It is so amusing to see all the fear about this on here from all the Patriots fans and Seahawk haters. Let me ask you this: Our Hall of Fame franchise quarterback just turned 30. Your Hall of Fame franchise quarterback just turned 41. Which one of our teams will still be relevant in 2 years?

    Yeah. The Seahawks.

    Have a nice day Patriots fans.

  23. Football is a team game
    Wilson’s teammates need to get paid too
    Sorry, ex-teammates now, this is a salary cap league

  24. The true Russell Wilson has shown his face. He doesn’t give a dang about anything but the money. He’s not a HOFer and he’ll be hurt from all the running and sacks he’s going to still be taking because they won’t be able to afford anything but B players. You Hawks fans go ahead and puff your chest now. We will see when the season starts. Last I checked the NFC West goes thru LA.

  25. Hopefully, Wilson’s contract gives him some authority over the offensive line, and the right to allocate part of his salary to the offensive line. Otherwise he will probably get injured.

  26. Russ, quit talking about it and go do it. In the words of a great Seahawk, “it’s all about that action, Boss”.

  27. Is anyone interested in Frank Clark? I heard he is up for grabs now that all the superbowls will be won by Russ W.

  28. Making 3x Brady’s salary and won’t have close to 1/3 SB rings to show for it.

    Russell Wilson 2019 cap hit – $25,286,668
    Tom Brady 2019 cap hit – $27,000,000

  29. I live when QB’s take the big money,generally it dooms a team. To much $ for just one player.

  30. Russell, if you’re serious about more Super Bowl wins better tell Pete to bring Scot McGloughan back into the fold ASAP. Personnel decisions without him have been abysmal…….

  31. Seahawks remind me of the late 90’s 49ers. Great quarterback. Have some pieces to be competitive. Probably make the playoffs. Get beaten early because to win it all you need to be firing on all cylinders. Some team will be each year.

    My prediction: Seahawks win exactly zero more superbowls under Wilson.

    Look at the year they won: Wilson, outstanding running game with Marshawn, all world defense.

    Now: Wilson.

    Yeah. The Seahawks…

    What would possibly make you think the Seahawks will “still be relevant” in two years, when the Seahawks have not been relevant for almost five years now? If overpaying QBs made teams relevant, then teams like the Packers, and Redskins, and Raiders, and Broncos, and Dolphins, and Vikings, and…would be in the Super Bowl damn near every year, instead of the Patriots.

  33. To win a SB, one must first make the playoffs. Seattle has to play the Eagles, Steelers, Browns, Panthers and Falcons on the road. They could be 0-5 in those games easily or 2-3 at best. They also have the Bucs, Bengals, Ravens, Saints and Vikings at home. Add a couple of losses to the LAmbs, and a loss each to Frisco and Arizona, and the road to the Super Bowl in 2019 appears to be lined with potholes with a big detour sign.

  34. Russell Wilson 2019 cap hit – $25,286,668

    ===============================================

    Wilson 1 SB ring, zero SB MVP award, Most overrated QB ever.
    Brady 6 SB rings, multiple SB MVP and league MVP awards, Greatest Of All Time

  35. Look at the year they won: Wilson, outstanding running game with Marshawn, all world defense.

    #1 in rushing in 2018.

    So I guess they just need to fix the D..

  36. SB’s to win with who? You have zero offense, no offensive coordinator, no offensive weapons, no defense to rescue you any more. Russell Wilson statement sounds like he is attempting to gin up false hope to take the pressure off of the fact he alone held Seattle captive so he could get paid. Richard Sherman was right, he’s a loser!

  37. Clark a Chief, thank you Russell. I told you all they would have to drop a defenseman. Sebrawlk12, that isn’t hate…that’s the truth eating you up.
