Me,...I have a different view of it. Wilson will most likely bring me much happiness over the next few years. I've gone to several doctors recently that make more than RW and I have to tell ya..I have little expectation they will make me feel better than Mr. Wilson.
I care about "everything" Wilson. Mr. Wilson is worth every penny he makes from here on out.

The Pro Bowl is a dog and pony show. Nobody gets hurt. Nobody gets tackled hard. Wilson has nothing to fear except maybe his wife might want to get on with the honeymoon and some personal time with Russell.
What I can't seem to figure out is what "third alternate'" in the voting means. I'm pretty sure that non elected players do not get the $42,500 for winning or the $22.500 for losing in the Pro Bowl.

This is a very common, but misplaced sentiment. Yeah, NFL players, even the bottom tier, make more money than most. But it's a matter of being competitively compensated within the job market. There's absolutely no doubt that he's vastly underpaid based on performance and relative value across his position. So when people say he is underpaid, it's because of the relative market of the NFL, not a concern for his ability to make ends meet.
