Russell Wilson is the franchise quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. He recently just signed a 4 year $140 million dollar extension with the Seattle Seahawks making him the highest paid player in NFL history. As a thank you Russell Wilson used some of that new money to give 13 offensive lineman $12,000 in Amazon stock. Meaning he spent a grand total of $156,000 dollars on stocks.

Each player got a letter with the stock gift explaining why Russell Wilson blessed them with stocks.

“Every Sunday we go to battle together,” Wilson wrote … “You sacrifice your physical and mental well-being to protect me, which in turn allows me to provide and care for my family.”

“This does not go unnoticed and it is never forgotten.”

Russell says he wants to help his teammates prepare for life after football and believes stock in Amazon will help these players achieve their dreams.

“When I sat down to think of ways to honor your dedication a dozen different ideas came to mind. Some were flashy, some were cool, but I wanted to give you something that had a lasting impact. Something that would affect the lives of you, your family, and your children.”

“You have invested in my life … this is my investment into yours.”
