RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Russell Wilson is sticking around with the Seattle Seahawks.
Wilson tweeted Friday morning that he has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Seahawks, keeping him with the franchise that took him in the third round of the 2012 draft and watched him become one of the most successful young quarterbacks in NFL history.
"Blessed to be w/ this organization for 4 more years! Can't wait to get on field w/ the fellas!" Wilson tweeted shortly before Seattle's first training camp practice.
The team had not confirmed the agreement and Wilson's representatives did not immediately return messages seeking comment. MMQB.com reported the extension is for four years and $87.6 million.
About to begin his fourth season, Wilson has led Seattle to the playoffs all three seasons, beating Denver in the Super Bowl in his second season before losing to New England in the title game last February.
