Jul 31 2015 - QB Russell Wilson signed a four-year contract extension with the Seahawks Friday (July 31).
Seahawks fans had spent the offseason fretting over every seeming twist and turn in the Wilson contract drama, with speculation increasing throughout the summer that he could play the year without a new deal.
Wilson had set a deadline of the beginning of camp to reach a deal, with his agent Mark Rodgers confirming that Wilson did not want it hanging over his head.
After a week of talks, the two sides finally came to an agreement, with one of the key breakthroughs coming when the two sides agreed on a four-year extension, beginning in 2016. That will allow Wilson to hit free agency when he's 31.
The deal will pay Wilson $87.6 million with a $31 million signing bonus -- the most ever awarded by the Seahawks -- and $61.5 million in guarantees overall, the most in the NFL.
Wilson said news of the deal, which he received Thursday night around 11, was "exciting."
"I've always been confident it was going to happen, I never really doubted it was going to happen," he said.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll sang a similar tune.
"It was imminent, it was coming the whole time," he said. "We wanted to do it, it was his turn, you know how we've done it, you've watched this. We give guys opportunities and we try to take full advantage of nailing them when we can. It was a long process to get it done but now that it's over, it's good for him, it's good for our club."

Nov 28 2014 - QB Russell Wilson completed 15 of 22 passes for 236 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions Thursday night in a 19-3 victory against the 49ers. He had a passer rating of 118.8 and also ran seven times for 35 yards. Wilson had a long pass of 63 yards to TE Tony Moeaki and hit RB Robert Turbin on a 13-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter.
Nov 4 2013 - QB Russell Wilson has nine wins when tied or trailing in the fourth quarter (including playoffs) with a come-from-behind victory over Tampa Bay. Seattle trailed 24-14 entering the final quarter. Wilson also now has 19 victories in his first 25 starts. He needs four more wins to have more wins than any other QB in NFL history in their first two seasons.
Wilson "got banged around" a little bit in the game, coach Pete Carroll said. But Carroll also indicated it's nothing that would hold Wilson out of the Atlanta game this Sunday. Wilson also said after the game he is fine.
