Contract Notes

Russell Wilson signed a four year contract extension with the Seahawks worth $87.6 million on July 31, 2015. According to SI's Peter King, Wilson received a $31 million signing bonus. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com the following tweet has the breakdown of the Wilson extension which we are using to estimate the cap charges at the moment. Wilson received $31.7 million fully guaranteed upon signing. His 2016, 2017, and $4.9 million of his 2018 salary are guaranteed for injury and will become fully guaranteed on the 5th day of the waiver period in each year. The total guarantee is $61.542 million.

Per Andrew Brandt, Wilson converted $6.26 million of his 2017 salary to a signing bonus to create about $4.17 million in cap space and increasing each of the final two years of his contract by $2.08 million. We will update his cap charges further after clarifying the full details of the restructure.
