Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson gets huge new contract with the team. Once again, the Seahawks and Russell Wilson have come together, this time making NFL contract history.
Just as they did in 2015, the two sides came
to an agreement on a new contract on the night of a deadline set by Wilson,
with Seattle agreeing late Monday night to a four-year, $140 million contract
extension that keeps him with the Seahawks through the 2023 season and makes
him the highest-paid player in the history of the NFL.
The contract also includes a $65 million signing bonus that is also the highest in NFL history. Go Seahawks!
Mariners lose to Cleveland.
Make it 19 straight games with a home run for the Mariners as the long-ball show continued at T-Mobile Park on Monday, though Seattle waited until the eighth inning to unleash back-to-back blasts by Edwin Encarnacion and Omar Narváez in a 6-4 loss to the Indians.
The two late homers extended the Mariners’ Major League record for consecutive games with a home run to start the season, well beyond the previous mark of 14 set by the 2002 Indians.
Despite the late push, the Mariners endured their fourth straight loss and fell to 13-6, while Cleveland snapped a three-game skid of its own and is now 9-7. Game two of the three game series is tonight.
It’s Game Two of the NBA Playoffs action for the Portland Trail Blazers tonight, as they meet the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round of the NBA playoffs. Portland leads the series, 1-0.
The Trail Blazers snapped a 10-game playoff-losing streak following a 104-99 victory over the Thunder on Sunday in Game 1. The Blazers said it “felt great” to get the win, but they know it was just one game and a series can change quickly.
The Trail Blazers’ Game 1 win was a team effort just as they’ve been doing since Jusuf Nurkic went down with a season-ending injury. Portland was in control when Damian Lillard was playing in rhythm, which is to be expected. Lillard’s 14 points in the fourth quarter helped the Blazers hold of OKC. For the Thunder, Paul George’s (left shoulder) health could very well determine their success in the series.
