NFL Notes: Russell Wilson, Brandon Browner, Browns, & Colts


Russell Wilson

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that Russell Wilson‘s new four-year extension with the Seahawks has no fully guaranteed money at signing beyond his bonus and first-year salary.

This amounts to $31.7 million. However, the remainder of guaranteed money is guaranteed for injury only.

The contract will create more fully guaranteed money on the fifth day of league years 2016 – 2018:

  • 2016: $12.342 million of his base salary becomes fully guaranteed.
  • 2017: $12.6 million of his base salary becomes fully guaranteed.
  • 2018: $4.9 million of Wilson’s base salary of $15.5 million becomes fully-guaranteed.
