Russell Wilson and Ciara make a major announcement

Recent rumors linked Wilson to the New York Giants as Eli Manning's replacement and suggested he might demand a trade if he and the Seahawks failed to agree to a long-term contract extension by Monday.

There are no workarounds for the facts that Wilson has the most wins by a quarterback in his first seven seasons in NFL history, and that his career QB rating of 100.3 is second in league annals only to Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, who is 35. The contract extension will include a $65 million signing bonus. Wilson and the Seahawks fell to the New England Patriots the next year in Super Bowl XLIX. "Go Hawks!" she said, with Russell adding, "I'ma see y'all in the morning. Time for y'all to go to bed".

The Seahawks were up against a deadline of late Monday night to reach a deal with Wilson, who had vowed not to discuss an extension if the sides couldn't reach a deal by midnight.

But former Wallabies coach Alan Jones slammed RA's threat to sack Folau , saying the decision had "completely corrupted" free speech in Australia.

When asked about the possible deal during an interview with ET last month, Ciara said she'd be proud of Wilson "no matter what". "To pay him what you were gonna have to pay him to keep him, and then having to pay Seattle to get him with these young crop of quarterbacks that are coming up this year, next year".

Russell Wilson and Ciara have millions of reasons to celebrate.

"He is incredible. He inspires me in so many ways", she said of her husband.

Lori Loughlin Pleads Not Guilty After Indictment for College Bribery Scheme
Loughlin, who played aunt Becky on the sitcom Full House , and Giannulli haven't publicly addressed the allegations against them. Huffman is scheduled to appear in Boston's federal court on May 24 to plead guilty.

No more speculation about Wilson wanting to play elsewhere.

The deal ends the debate about Wilson's future with the Seahawks, although there seemed to be little doubt he would remain in Seattle for a while.

The deal makes Wilson the highest paid player in the entire league. General manager John Schneider has to listen to any possibility, but if they can get Clark an extension at under $20 million a year, they would get more cap room.

On May 2, he will appear in a London court via video regarding the extradition request. He had been holed up there since 2012, after Ecuador granted him asylum.

Russell can sleep easy knowing that he's getting paid. He won a Super Bowl in his second season and got back to the championship game a year later before making the one major mistake of his career that will linger until he wins another title, throwing a goal line interception in the final minute when the Seahawks had a chance to take the lead on New England.
