Russell Wilson is staying with the Seattle Seahawks with what is reported to be a contract that will make him the highest-paid player in the NFL.

The quarterback, who set midnight Monday as a deadline to reach a long-term deal or he would break off negotiations,tweeted a videoof himself with wife, Ciara, at 12:44 a.m. Tuesday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport report the deal is a four-year extension at $140 million that includes a $65 million signing bonus.

Rapoport said $107 million is guaranteed, plus there is a no-trade clause. This means Wilson, who had one year left on his old deal, is under contract in Seattle through the 2023 season.
