On Thursday morning, the Denver Broncos signed Russell Wilson to a large-scale five-year contract extension.
The deal is worth $245 million with $165 million guaranteed, adding the remaining two seasons to his existing contract. Overall, the deal locks the 33-year-old QB in Denver for the next seven years for a total of $296 million.
This record-breaking contract for the franchise is certainly a cause for celebration in the Wilson camp.
After the news broke, the nine-time Pro-Bowl quarterback took to Twitter to react to his new contract.
“ALL GLORY TO JESUS!!! #HEisKING,” Wilson wrote.
This new deal essentially ties Wilson to the Broncos organization for the rest of his NFL career.
The Super Bowl-winning quarterback will play his first game under this contract when he faces his former team against the Seattle Seahawks on September 12.
