    Making him the highest paid QB is crazy unfortunately every QB that comes up for a new deal will become the new highest paid QB.

    I think Wison could be traded but no one woułd pay that price considering Wilson’s salary expectation.

    In 7 seasons, Wilson has never had a losing season and has made the playoffs 6 of 7 years.

    Wilson was never going to be traded. He now is the highest paid player in the NFL.

    On 6/22/17, Derek Carr pushed the new-money average for QBs to a record of $25M per year. Less than 22 months later, Russell Wilson pushes the new-money average for QBs to a record of $35M per year.

    Seahags will likely now have to go cheap on several backup/depth roster spots now.Probably means more low cost rookies make the team.Even with the top 51 ccounting against the CAP Seahags will probably tighten the belt in other positions.

    Roethlisberger threw the ball 248 MORE times than Russ Wilson last year and finished with one fewer TD

    This is one reason why the Patriots have sustained success - a QB with a wife that makes far more money than he does, so he can afford to leave millions on the table every year.

    Imagine if the Pats had to pay Brady his real value - they wouldn't have been able to afford many of the other pieces on the team.

    And the good news is that with $140M tied up in the QB position, they won't be able to add too much to their team. Especially, considering they still have to pay Bobby Wagner.
