Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson agreed to a four-year, $87.6 million contract extension Friday, which includes $60 million guaranteed, according to the Seattle Times. $31 million of the $60 million guaranteed will be in the form of a signing bonus. Wilson said he would play out the last year of his $1.5 million rookie contract if the two sides did not reach an agreement before Friday, the first day of training camp. The $60 million in guaranteed money is the third most in the NFL, trailing only the $64 million guarantee that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger received and the $61 million that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick got in his last contract. Wilson has led the Seahawks to two Super Bowls and a 36-12 record since he became the starter, and while his contract is significant in terms of value, it does leave some room for the team to sign linebacker Bobby Wagner to a big deal as well.

Wilson will play out the final season of his rookie deal under an insurance policy, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It's unclear if Wilson and the Seahawks have reached an impasse on contract negotiations, but the chances of the quarterback attaining a long-term commitment during the offseason appear slim. After back-to-back Super Bowl runs, he now has a viable receiving threat at his disposal (Jimmy Graham), which could help Wilson reach 30 passing touchdowns for the first time in his career.

Wilson completed 12-of-21 passes for 247 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception, in Sunday's 28-24 Super Bowl loss to the Patriots. He added 39 yards on three carries.

Wilson's performance will be remembered for a game-sealing interception, which was the result of a late throw from the quarterback, a passive catch attempt by Ricardo Lockette, and a great play by New England's Malcom Butler. Wilson had an unusual game Sunday evening, as he couldn't get anything going until midway through the second quarter, but he was fantastic from that point until the interception. He made some brilliant throws down the field, helping Seattle to overcome New England's massive advantage in coverage. While Wilson's rushing ability already makes him an excellent quarterback in the fantasy game, he might be able to take another step next season, if the Seahawks can provide him with a better receiving corps. Seattle does have some contracts to address, but the team has a manageable cap situation, with an excellent collection of talent locked down for next year. Be it through the draft or free agency, the Seahawks will likely look to add another target for Wilson.

Wilson completed 14-of-29 passes for 209 yards with one TD and a career-high four interceptions in Sunday's 28-22 overtime win over the Packers in the NFC Championship game.

Wilson, who added seven carries for 25 yards and a TD, struggled for much of the game, but he came through when it counted on Sunday, leading the team to two fourth-quarter TDs in the final two minutes of regulation time, along with the game-winning TD throw in overtime to Jermaine Kearse, which propelled the Seahawks to their second consecutive Super Bowl.

Wilson completed 15-of-22 passes for 268 yards and three touchdown and rushed for 22 yards on seven carries in Saturday's Divisional Round win over the Panthers.

With the victory, Wilson and the Seahawks punched their ticket to the NFC Championship for a second consecutive year. Wilson found Doug Baldwin for a touchdown from 16 yards out with less than a minute remaining in the first quarter to give Seattle the lead, and later threw scores of 63 and 25 yards to Jermaine Kearse and Luke Wilson, respectively. The 63-yard score tied for his second longest touchdown pass of the season.

Wilson completed 17-of-25 passes for 239 yards and an interception in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Rams. He ran for just seven yards.

While it wasn't a productive game from a fantasy perspective, Wilson's performance was good enough for the Seahawks to earn homefield advantage in the NFC throughout the playoffs. If you're participating in a postseason league, Wilson makes for a nice option, given that he might play three games.

Wilson completed 20-of-31 passes for 339 yards and two touchdowns, adding six carries for 88 yards and another touchdown, in Sunday's 35-6 win over the Cardinals

Given both the stakes and quality of opponent, Wilson turned in arguably the finest game of his career. The 339 passing yards represent a new personal best, and while he did have a potential interception dropped, Wilson was brilliant for most of the night. There was no shortage of highlighst, as he broke off a 55-yard scramble in the first quarter, and then threw an 80-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Luke Willson in the second quarter. Wilson capped his night off with a five-yard touchdown on a designed run late in the fourth quarter, when he broke a pair of tackles to turn a big loss into a stat-padding score. He'll face a tough St. Louis defense in Week 17, but he piled up 313 passing yards, 106 rushing yards and three total touchdowns in a Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Wilson completed 12-of-24 passes for 168 yards, with a touchdown and interception, in Sunday's 17-7 win against the 49ers. He also ran five times for 27 yards.

Wilson was under a lot of pressure throughout, but his interception in the closing seconds of the first half was simply a bad throw, costing the Seahawks a field goal attempt. He did throw a touchdown pass to Paul Richardson early in the fourth quarter, but even that was aided by a controversial personal foul call on the 49ers just a few plays earlier that extended the drive. In any event, he'll look to get back on track from a statistical standpoint next week at Arizona.

Wilson completed 22-of-37 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 24-14 win at Philadelphia. He also contributed 48 yards on the ground with another score.

Wilson looked comfortable the entire game, making plays in and out of the pocket. His 26-yard touchdown run on a read-option play early in the second quarter opened the scoring for Seattle, and he later added a pair of touchdown passes in the third quarter. He'll have a tougher test next week against the 49ers, although he was productive against them on Thanksgiving, in a 19-3 road win.
