Russell Wilson gifted his lineman in a PRIME way!
Wilson just signed a 4 year, $140 million contract, making him the highest paid player in the NFL.
Russell immediately showed his appreciation to his offensive lineman, and the QB gifted $12,000 in Amazon stock, to each!
Smart move Russell, taking care of those who take care of you!
Along with his gift, he wrote a letter to his lineman.
Wilson wrote, “Every Sunday we go to battle together, you sacrifice your physical and mental well-being to protect me, which in turn allows me to provide and care for my family…This does not go unnoticed and it is never forgotten.”
The highest paid NFL player said he wants to help his teammates prepare for life after football and believes the Amazon stock will help his teammates achieve their dreams.
When Russell was thinking of ways to honor his lineman, several ideas came to mind. Of course something flashy was an option, but Wilson also stated, “I wanted to give you something that had a lasting impact, something that would affect the lives of you, your family, and your children.”
He finished his statement with, “You have invested in my life..this is my investment into yours.”
Hopefully his investment pays off!
Russell and The Seahawks are scheduled to play their 1st regular season game on Sept. 8.
