How many athletes sign a huge multi-million dollar contract and instead of being out celebrating, spend it at home with their boo?

Well, if you are a Seattle Seahawks fan you can be happy that your star player just signed a $140 million, 4-year deal on Monday night. Russell Wilson just became the highest paid NFL player!

Instead of popping bottles at the club or throwing a huge party, Wilson uploaded a video in bed all cuddled up with Ciara. “Hey Seattle, we got a deal,” Wilson said. While his girlfriend Ciara responds with a , “Go Hawks!” comment.

I mean if you are guaranteed $65 million, you can expect Wilson to have a great season and hopefully win a ring for the Seattle fan base. In the past seven seasons, the Hawks have made six playoff appearances.

Wilson was drafted by them back in the 2012 NFL draft.
