Quarterback Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos agreed to a five-year, $245 million deal.
The $49 million annual average value makes him the second highest-paid player in the league behind reigning Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers.
It also binds him with the Broncos until 2028, when he will be 40 years old.
More importantly, Wilson did not sign a fully-guaranteed contract, and NBC Sports’ Pro Football Talk considers that a victory.
However, NFL agent Zac Hiller has something to say about Wilson’s deal.
Company guy. Doing favors for the establishment to keep the rest of the men down. He’ll get something behind the scenes for this https://t.co/Xtv768ZwxJ

Hiller tweeted, “Company guy. Doing favors for the establishment to keep the rest of the men down. He’ll get something behind the scenes for this.”
What Are Hiller’s Intentions?
His intentions for sharing this tweet are unknown, but as always, agents would like to get the highest value for their clients.
After all, their revenue comes from these deals, and they get more if they negotiate for higher payouts.
He would also be hard-pressed to provide proof of Wilson “doing favors for the establishment.”
Likewise, it would be difficult to know if he gets something off camera.
In reality, Wilson has made money in the league.
Before his current deal, he signed a four-year, $140 million deal with the Seattle Seahawks.
That transaction was carried over when the Denver Broncos traded for him.
Getting $165 million in guaranteed money is already of great value for him.
He feels that it’s enough to secure him financially for life.
Besides, the deal should contain incentives that he could attain given their team’s composition.
The Broncos have a powerful offense with Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon III in the backfield.
They also have Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, and KJ Hamler as receivers.
They also have Bradley Chubb, Justin Simmons, Randy Gregory, and Pat Surtain II on defense.
Therefore, they will go a long way and Wilson could earn incentives off it.NEXT: NFL Insider Reminds Fans Of A Russell Wilson Promise
