Russell Wilson and therefore the Denver Broncos agree to a 5-year extension

Russell Wilson  and therefore the Denver Broncos agree to a 5-year extension worth $245 million, with $165 million guaranteed, sources say.

The Denver Broncos and star quarterback Russell Wilson have consented to a five-year, $245 million figuring out expansion, with $165 million ensured, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Wilson, acquired by the Broncos  during a  successful offseason trade from the Seahawks, is now under contract with Denver for seven years and $296 million.

The mega-deal  is the  third most lucrative contract in NFL history by guaranteed money, behind Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson's $230 million and Chicago quarterback Deshaun Watson's $189.5 million. Cardinals Kyler Murray. 

Wilson, 33, said early in training camp that he hopes to be Denver's quarterback "for  an extended , long time," and  head  George Paton has repeatedly said that one of the main Broncos priorities was a long-term extension for the nine-time Pro Bowler.

The Broncos traded five draft picks, including two first-round picks and two second-round picks, and three players to the Seahawks  to accumulate  Wilson last March – seeking stability and stardom at quarterback, which  may be a  problem since the retirement of Peyton Manning. in 2016.

Wilson's (292) career touchdown passes are the second most  in  history for a quarterback in his first 10 NFL seasons, behind only Manning (306). Tom Brady (324) and Aaron Rodgers (317) are  the sole  two players with more touchdown passes than Wilson in the last 10 years.

Wilson, who led the Seahawks to  the sole  Super Bowl title in franchise history — beating the Broncos after the 2014 Super Bowl XLVIII season — was also a consistent winner in his NFL career. His 113 wins as a starting quarterback (regular season and playoffs combined) are  the foremost  for an NFL player in his first 10 seasons.
