Does Russell Wilson deserve the richest contract in NFL history? Wilson has went to back-to-back Super Bowls with the Seahawks and technically he should have been back to back winners, but they fell short when they decided to throw the ball instead of running it. The former third round pick of the Seahawks was rumored to be in line for a deal close to Andy Dalton and Colin Kaepernick but according to sources, that is not what he wants. There are reports that he wants to be the highest paid quarterback in the NFL.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson wants the richest contract in NFL history

Michael Vick, has the largest deal ever signed. That was with the Atlanta Falcons, when he signed a contract with a total value of $138 million in 2004. However, Vick ultimately only received about $30 million of that contract when he was sent to prison and the deal was voided.

Many say the Seahawks quarterback is looking at Jay Cutler’s deal and would not minds something similar. Cutler signed a seven-year, $126.7 million contract which is the richest contract in NFL history in terms of total value.

Wilson definitely deserves more than Cutler, but even Cutler knows he didn’t deserve that deal.  Chicago staff must have been drunk when they wrote up that contract.  We shall see, but it sounds like the Seahawks gunslinger will not be happy until he receives some bank.
