Russell Wilson He has yet to play his first regular-season game as the Denver Bronco, and has already reached a contract extension with the organization.

According to ESPN, the Broncos and Russell have agreed to a five-year, $245 million contract extension, which includes $165 million guaranteed. He will now be under contract with the team for the next seven years and $296 million.

What previously reported, the Seattle Seahawks traded Russell to the Broncos in March. ESPN reports that the Broncos traded five of their draft picks, including two first-round picks and two second-round picks, as well as three of their players to acquire Russell. For this season, Russell is set to make $24 million, and next season he is set to make $27 million. The contract extension will keep him in Denver through 2028, giving him an average annual salary of $49 million.

In June, Russell discussed joining the Broncos after the trade and said,

“It’s been a blessing to come here, to come to an amazing city like Denver, to be a part of it with so many amazing teammates and a great coaching staff. But also, once the trade was going to happen, I was like, ‘Hey, listen, I want to make sure I go to a city that wants to win. I want to make sure I go to a team that wants to win. And I want to go to a city that knows how to win.’ And all three of those things were checked here in Denver, so I think we have a chance.”

Russell’s wife, Ciara, shared how proud she is of him following the news of his contract extension, saying:
