Seattle Seahawks player, Russel Wilson who is also Singer Ciara’s husband, recently received the praises of his wife after re-signing a mouth-watering contract with his football team of 7 years, extending the contract by another four years, with added incentives.

The contract comes with a $140 million (about 50 billion Naira) salary over the next four years with about $35 million per season and a $65 million signing bonus.

This made Russel the highest paid player in NFL history beating colleague Aaron Rogers, who was formerly the highest-paid player in the NFL with his annual average of $33.5 million per season. The footballer has been with the team since 2012 and signed a new contract covering the next four years.

In the break of the news, Ciara took to her Instagram page to celebrate her husband whom she got married to in 2016 and has a daughter with.

“I watch you put everything on the line every Sunday in pure amazement. Your dedication commitment and consistency to the game never wavers,” she wrote.

“You’re always the first person in and the last person out. You’re 1 of 1. The hardest working man I know. So proud of you baby. Giving God all the praise.”

On Twitter, Ciara shared a similar note, saying; “Soooo proud of my love. So excited Seattle is home! God is so good. The hardest working man I know! You inspire me so much! #GoHawks.”

The 30-year-old Seattle icon, Wilson, took the Seahawks to a Super Bowl win in 2013 and also holds the record for most wins by an NFL quarterback through 7 seasons.
