Kids Choice Sports 2015 Awards

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will do anything to impress his R&B girlfriend, Ciara. Even turn down a pay raise of $20 million!

The 26-year-old superstar recently turned down a $21 million-a-year contract offer from the Seahawks' for the 2015/16 season. Wilson is currently paid a measly $1.5 million a year.

Wilson has given the Super Bowl runner-up team until the end of this week to make him a better offer or he will play out the 2015/16 season under his current $1.5 million salary.

No doubt Wilson is holding out because he wants to become the highest paid NFL player in the game.

According to Pro Football Talk, only four other NFL players earn over $20 million a year.

The highest played player is the Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers who takes home $22 million a year.

The Seahawks reportedly aren't interested in exceeding $22 million a year to keep Wilson (and his R&B girlfriend) happy.

Friday’s comments from former Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren suggests he knows the specifics and realizes that Wilson would be wise to swap out $1.5 million this year for the massive increase he’ll instantly receive. Ultimately, it’ll be Wilson’s call regarding whether to play for $88,000 per week in 2015 or a lot more than that. Source

    • Sasha586

      He did win a Super Bowl and almost did it again, but he is no Aaron Rodgers. But if my hometown teams mediocre ass QB Matt Stafford can get 17 mil a year, get your money Russell!

      Russell was a 3rd round pick. He was named Rookie of the year in 2012 and a year later led the team to a Super Bowl win and then they went back in 2014. They need to pay this boy. His first contract was only $2.99 million.

    • MisTaken

      So this is Ciara's fault because ...... Blankest state. Don't worry I WON'T wait. It ain't her fault.
      But er um yea. He better ask for his money up front. If he has 3 years in the league and one of which includes a championship ring and a super bowl appearance that they almost won back to back... HE DESERVE ? That's the problem folks are afraid to ask. You have not cause you ask not. Trust and believe they will work it out. It's called negotiations people. Happens all the time. You don't have to take the first offer ...

      So, It's ok for Cam Newton to make more money than Russell, even though he never went to the Super Bowl. They are cheating this man big time. He should be paid big bucks. Any way his agent is calling the shots with the negotiations.

      Umm, WAYMENT, This dude just turned down a FRIGGIN 20 MILLION DOLLAR a YEAR PAYRAISE? WHAT IN THE WORLD? Makes no sense.... UGH. SHIIIDDD, I'd be happy with a $5 Milly raise.... Must be niceeee to turn down moolah like that. I guess he got it like that..

      Are you serious? If that manly, wig wearing dummy is responsible for this, he is a stupid as she/he is. She doesn't even make a million dollars a year not to mention hasn't had a hit in how long? I do not want him running to the black community screaming one word about racism when he is dumped and banned from the league. He has lost his mind. Maybe he needs a field trip to the ghetto to give him a reality check. Done......

      LOL, meanwhile folks out in these struggle streets begging for overtime, trying to get their co-workers to give them a shift and offering to do odd jobs for neighbors just so they can earn a extra measly $20 so they can make some things happen. Life is a crazy thing

      He will think about it tonight and by daybreak, he WILL accept that money! LOL

      If you really know how these negotiations work? This is a smart move on his part, because now he can get the franchise price, and not be stuck in a 5 to 7 year contract.
