Russell Wilson wants to be the highest paid player in the NFL, per report

Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

Russell Wilson wants to become the highest paid player in the NFL, reports Bleacher Report's Jason Cole.

Per Cole's sources, Wilson and his agent Mark Rodgers are looking for a deal that surpasses Aaron Rodgers' five-year, $110 million contract. When Cole reached out to Mark Rodgers for comment, Wilson's agent did not dispute Cole's report but said that he wants Wilson's deal to be "relevant" -- and that he expects that in short order, Wilson's contract would no longer be the league's largest anyway, as Aaron Rodgers, Eli Manning, and Andrew Luck get new deals.

The Seahawks have reportedly made several offers to Wilson and his camp, but with a full month still until training camp even starts, there is no real deadline for either side to relent to demands. For now, we'll just have to wait to see if both sides can come to a compromise.
