Here are the details of Russell Wilson's four-year, $140 million extension: As previously reported, a record $65 million signing bonus (part of which will be paid next year) makes up over half of the $107 million in guarantees. The Seahawks maintained club precedent of only making the first year's salary fully guaranteed, so his 2020-2023 salaries are guaranteed for injury only at time of signing and become fully guaranteed on the fifth day of each league year waiver period. The final two seasons have $5 million roster bonuses due on the fifth day of the league year. Wilson's base salaries and cap numbers by year are $5 million/$26.287 million for 2019; $18 million/$31 million for 2020; $19 million/$32 million for 2021; $19 million/$37 million for 2022; $21 million/$39 million for 2023.
