NFL rumors: Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck will earn $24-$25 million per year in new contracts


On Wednesday, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick received a huge pay day which had to be music to the ears of Indianapolis Colts star Andrew Luck and Seattle Seahawks signal-caller Russell Wilson.

Kaepernick’s new deal could pay up to $21 million per year, but that number could be even larger for Luck and Wilson.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the two quarterbacks could receive contracts that pay up to $25 million per year when they sign their extensions.

Luck and Wilson are set to be paid in 2015.

As you would expect, that figure would be a new record.

Luck is a former No. 1 overall pick and Wilson is a Super Bowl champion.

It is probably safe to assume that the two men receiving such a large pay day would not be met with the same questioning and mixed response that Kaepernick’s new deal was met with.
