49. Russell Wilson – Seattle Seahawks, Football:
Wilson recently made NFL football history by signing a four-year, $140 million extension with the Seattle Seahawks in April 2019. The deal included a staggering $64 million signing bonus and a staggering, NFL-record $107 million in guaranteed money. He’ll average $35 million a year and $546,875 per game.
He deserves it, as Wilson has won a Super Bowl, made it to two Super Bowls, and started every single game for Seattle since he was drafted in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft. Despite running for his life in recent years, Wilson is the most important player on the team and got paid like it.
