I read somewhwere that because of the new CBA we can't extend Russell, and he will have to complete his rookie contract Is that right? The man deserves to be paid that seems wierd to me?

Nope. He's a rookie. That's the rules, and this time it goes in our favor. He's well aware of it, and I'm sure perfectly fine with it. We'll have to eat his fifty kajillion dollar paycheck come four years from now, but until then we get way, way more than our money's worth from him.

I believe he's on a 4-year deal and under the new CBA he can't negotiate a new deal/extension until after year 3.

Maybe Mr. Allen can make him a spokesman for Vulcon or something, cause he is grossly underpaid!

My bad, thought it was well known that when Wilson isn't watching film, he hangs out at the childrens hospital. True story. Too lazy to find the article though, other .net members confirm?

When he isn't watching film, I'm sure he is spending time with his beautiful wife ...
I don't think RW needs to worry about $$$ now. Plenty of endorsements coming his way. I'm sure his agent will be plenty busy this off season. RW will soon be set financially. And he has earned every single penny he gets ...

You guys don't know Wilson that well, evidently. Yes, he's going to want to get pay commensurate with his performance in a few years. But yes, he knows he's a rookie in this league getting paid what rookies make, and he isn't greedy. It's never going to be about the money for him.

And we can all thank our luck stars he is who he is.

Well none of us know Wilson very well actually... Actually no one here knows him at all, most likely. So its a little silly to speculate on whether Wilson wants nice things in his life (most of which cost money) Yes he most likely will get that big paycheck, but nothing in the NFL is guaranteed and players get hurt all the time and never get that paycheck (knock on wood)

Pretty sure Wilson will make a ton of money in endorsements (and has made quite a bit). Not worried about his well being.

RW turned down $million from baseball to take a shot at a sport, where he was projected to be a backup at best by the "experts". Statistically, baseball players make more $$$ over the life of their career than football players.
I don't think RW is really worried about $$$ now. He is only worried about getting better for the next play, for the next series, for the next game.

In reality, PA has little or nothing to do with it.

Russell will get a raise when his contract can be extended... and he will be paid within the salary cap for the team at the time.

So you think the good guy routine is an act? Do you just think humanity is screwed and everyone is a pile of shit? Russell seems like a genuine good guy and he's still making a shitload more money than most of us will ever see on an annual basis. He didn't come from a bad neighborhood, and I honestly believe he isn't motivated by the money to the degree you're touting.

Perhaps we could spend the extra cash getting him a target like Greg Jennings to throw to?

screw greg jennings, too injury prone, give me brandon Marshall or Victor Cruz, somebody like that.. Jennings is good though.

and i do know RW and he told me he wants to get paid, and also he wants his hedge trimmer back...

Around 650,000 a year plus his signing bonus which put him over a million for this season.

ummm huh? Think you're grasping at straws a little bit there. So Im getting from what you're saying is that to be a good guy you have to donate all your money to charity and not spend any on nice things yourself. So by that logic if you have a big house with a pool and good furniture, plasma screeen tv, etc.. you are a bad guy? Cause thats all I was saying. No one knows Wilsons personal life too well and what he would do once he finally gets a big paycheck. Money might not be Russell's main motivator (probably not based on what we know of him) but once again, most people like owning nice things, and nice things cost money.

So imo it is presumptive to speculate on what Wilson would do with his paycheck and unfair to draw a parallel between being a good person and not spending money.

I seem to recall on a "Real Rob Report" someone giving him a hard time about his discount suits and his reply was he's saving his money.

:les:

Les, according to rotoworld.com, his salary for 2012 was only $390,000, not $650,000.

However, his signing bonus was $619,472... close to what you said his salary was.

In total, the team paid him $1,009,472 this year, which is exactly what you stated ("over a million").

And add to that he made $20,000 for the wild card game and $22,000 from yesterday's game... those are both paid by the League (not the club)... so altogether, he was paid $1,051,472 for the year.

Next year his salary is $526,217. In 2014, he'll be paid $662,434.

Following the 2014 season, he's eligible for a contract extension/re-negotiation.

He already has Levi and ESPN deals. And he had signed with a promotions and marketing firm out of North Carolina before the season. He is a wealthy man already.

Hey thanks, I didn't remember exactly what I had seen somewhere. Glad you had the exact figures. At coffee this morning my car guy group finally got to see the Levi add and thought I was kidding when I told them it had been made prior to the start of the season.

Wanted to know why that good an ad hadn't been prominent. I told them after the last 3 weeks of Wilson's life that commercial ought to pay him residuals for years. lol

And someone mentioned his wife looked good in Levis and I had to agree. :D

It's not money that motivates him and I don't think it's an act.
