Did Russell Wilson and Ciara ever release those prayers yet, because…
Ciara’s open support for her husband has always been a favorite among many who rooted for the Grammy-winning singer post her split from rapper Future.
She took to Twitter congratulating him on becoming a Denver Bronco since the announcement of his contract extension with the NFL team,
“Baby @DangeRussWilson I am so proud of you! You’re the most dedicated and hardworking person I know! It’s been so beautiful to see you become a Bronco! So excited for the journey ahead! You’re 1 of 1! My greatest inspiration. I love you so much! ❤️❤️❤️🐐🐐🐐 #3 @Broncos #LetsRide”

Wilson, 33, agreed to a five-year contract extension worth $296 million. He already has two years remaining from his prior contract negotiations with the Seahawks of $49 million. For the upcoming season, he’s set to earn $24 million followed by $27 million next year. This is all prior to the extension beginning. Not bad Mr. Wilson, not bad.
Sources: The #Broncos and QB Russell Wilson agree to terms on a 5-year, $245M massive extension. He gets $165M guaranteed. Officially locked in.

Back in March, the famed quarterback was traded from the Seahawks to the Broncos all in exchange for two first-round draft picks, two second-rounders, one fifth-rounder, former Broncos’ quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, and defensive tackle Shelby Harris. Wilson is contracted up until 2028.
During a press conference, the QB told reporters,
“It’s not really about me, it’s about being surrounded by guys who want to put the work in every single day and the dedication to it.”
“I want to be here for a long time, I believe this is a marriage and I want to be here for a long time. My goal is to be able to finish my career here.”
Nathaniel Hackett, Broncos’ head coach, believes Wilson is a good investment for the team saying,
“We want him to play 10 years here, 12 years, 15 years. The way you do that is by extending it, running the ball, and protecting the quarterback. Those are the two most important things, and I think that he understands that and sees that,” per ESPN.
When asked if he needs an adjustment period with the new team, Wilson said,
“Not really. Just keep getting the ball to the right guy at the right time and have some fun while doing it. It’s been a blast.”
“I feel amazing and feel the best I’ve ever felt. I feel strong, I feel fast, I feel confident and no fear. I feel like a winner.”
The former North Carolina State baseball player was a third-round pick in 2012 for the Seahawks which led to eight postseasons, two Super Bowl appearances, and a 2014 championship win.
