Russell Wilson announces new deal with Seahawks while snuggling in bed with wife, Ciara
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife, singer Ciara, announced Wilson’s signing of a new contract with the team in the most intimate of places — in bed.
Wilson’s extension with the Seahawks, a four-year, $140 million deal with $65 million guaranteed, makes him the highest paid player in the NFL.
The couple’s moment was caught on Monday in a late-night Instagram post.
Donned in three gold chains, a shirtless Wilson, while speaking in a nighttime Barry White-esque voice made the announcement, “Hey Seattle, we got a deal.”
A bubbly and beaming Ciara replies, “Go Hawks.”
“I’ll see y’all in the morning,” Wilson assures his followers.
The relieved Ciara says, “Finally we can go to sleep,” while giggling.
“See y’all tomorrow,” Wilson repeats.
"Ciara has remade Russell Wilson into a stone-cold playa on the field and at the negotiating table. She deserves equal credit for his record-setting contract." —@WhitlockJason pic.twitter.com/fEshMzZw8H
