Russell Wilson gets a huge raise. Well deserved contract for the Seahawks QB.

He's gonna be the second highest paid QB in the NFL behind Aaron Rodgers:

Quarterback Russell Wilson agrees to extension with Seattle Seahawks

Quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $87.6 million, sources confirmed to ESPN on Friday.

The terms were first reported by Sports Illustrated.

The deal puts Wilson on par with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is the NFL's highest-paid player with a deal worth an average of $22 million annually.

Wilson, 26, was scheduled to make $1.54 million this season, the fourth and final year of his rookie contract. If he had not agreed to the new contract, Wilson faced being tagged as the franchise player next February.

Wilson commented on the deal Friday morning on Twitter


Russell Wilson
✔ ‎@DangeRussWilson
Blessed to be w/ this organization for 4 more years! Can't wait to get on field w/ the fellas! @Seahawks #ChampionshipMindset

If it was a tight game, it would be understandable, but at this point, no one is a winner.
so enlighten us with your point? you obviously don't know how to communicate in a clear fashion.....

Any Jets fans? Geno Smith out for 10 weeks after getting his jaw broken in a locker room argument.

http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...eks-broken-jaw


FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The altercation in the New York Jets locker room that ended with quarterback Geno Smith suffering a broken jaw began as a dispute over $600, sources told ESPN.

Smith, who will miss at least six to 10 weeks with two fractures in his jaw, accepted a $600 plane ticket from IK Enemkpali to appear at the reserve linebacker's football camp in Pflugerville, Texas, on July 11, according to sources. Problems arose when Smith did not show to the camp, which took place days after someone close to Smith was killed in a motorcycle accident in Miami, sources said.

After Smith did not attend, Enemkpali demanded that the Jets quarterback refund him the $600 he allegedly used to purchase the plane ticket. Smith told Enemkpali he would reimburse him the money, but he had not as of Tuesday morning. Enkempali confronted Smith on Tuesday about the money, and the confrontation ended in a punch and a broken jaw.

A source familiar with the situation told ESPN's Josina Anderson that at the start of camp, Smith approached Enemkpali, sensing tension between the two. The source said Smith confronted Enemkpali, tried to diffuse the situation and offered to pay Enemkpali the $600.

The source told Anderson "Geno initially intended to attend the event out of goodwill," adding, "Geno did not borrow $600 from [Enemkpali]. He volunteered to attend the event. Geno offered to pay the kid back from what was spent, to help him out."

Enemkpali, a sixth-round pick in 2014, was released immediately by the team, with coach Todd Bowles saying it's up to Smith if he wants to formally press charges. The coach also said he spoke to the team and then made the decision to let go of Enemkpali.

"It had nothing to do with football. It was something very childish," Bowles said in an opening statement. "He got cold-cocked, sucker-punched, whatever you want to call it, in the jaw. He has a broken jaw, fractured jaw.

"The team knows it's something we don't tolerate, something we can't stand. You don't walk up to a man and punch him in the face."

"You can call him every name in the book and point in his face and do whatever you want," Bowles said later, "but when you punch a man in the face, that's some serious stuff."

Enemkpali released a statement Tuesday afternoon saying he was sorry for his actions.

"I apologize to the Jets organization, coaches, teammates and fans," Enemkpali said. "Geno and I let our frustration get the best of us, but I should have just walked away from the situation. I deeply regret and apologize for my actions. It was never my intention to harm anyone. I appreciate the opportunity I had with the Jets."
Replacing Geno

"Once [Enemkpali] calmed down, he was very remorseful," Bowles said. "From Geno's standpoint, anytime someone punches you in the face unwarranted, you're going to be pissed off -- and he was pissed off."

Bowles, who was informed of the situation by a trainer, said Smith did not throw a counter-punch and that several players stepped in to break up the altercation.

Bowles said he was also upset with Smith regarding the incident with Enemkpali.

"It takes two to tango -- one to throw a punch, but two to tango," Bowles explained.

Cornerback Darrelle Revis agreed with that sentiment, saying, "I hold both of them responsible, just the way it played out."

Smith, who was the presumptive opening day starter, will have surgery, according to Bowles. There's no guarantee that Smith will regain the starting job when his recovery ends, Bowles said.

Veteran backup Ryan Fitzpatrick is "our starter" now, Bowles said.

"My only goal is to heal quickly and get back to playing with my teammates so I can be the best QB possible for the NY Jets," Smith said in a statement.

He also took to Instagram, vowing to return.

A clearly annoyed Bowles said Enemkpali punched Smith over a trivial matter.

"It was something very childish, something sixth-graders could've talked about," Bowles said. "It had no reason to happen. If they want to tell you what happened, they can tell you what happened. I told them I wouldn't say anything about it."

"This isn't a UFC match," Jets guard Willie Colon said. "We're football players, not fighters."

This is not Enemkpali's first brush with off-the-field violence. At 19, while at a bar when he was at college at Louisiana Tech, a fight broke out and he punched an off-duty cop who was working security at the bar. On that night, Enemkpali had to be subdued first with pepper spray and then with a stun gun.

He was arrested and charged with battery on a police officer and disturbing the peace/drunk, according to court records. The charge was amended to simple battery, and he received a suspended jail sentence and was placed on 13 months' probation. He also was ordered to perform 32 hours of community service and to complete an anger-management course.

Bowles indicated that the Jets might add another quarterback. The current No. 2 is Bryce Petty, a rookie who has been struggling in camp.

Free-agent quarterback Tyler Thigpen will work out for the Jets on Friday, a source told Schefter. The New York Daily News reports that the Jets have also reached out to free-agent quarterback Rex Grossman, who last played in 2013 with the Washington Redskins.

Smith, entering his third season, was having an impressive camp. He didn't throw his first interceptions until Monday.

Free-agent quarterback Michael Vick, who spent last season with the Jets, reached out to Smith via Twitter.

I couldn't stop laughing when I heard about Geno, maybe its because I can't stand Geno or the Jets. This might be good for the Jets, Geno is horrible, Fitzpatrick would be a better starter for them lol

Geno is horrible but has shown flashes of brilliance

In any case, getting suckered by a teammate over a $600 debt is pretty much the most hilarious thing I've heard from pro sports in years

Reports now saying it really wasn't a sucker punch, Geno and Ik where face to face jawing at each other with Geno sticking his finger in Ik's face

Ex-NFL safety Ryan Clark says he knows exactly why IK Enemkpali punched Jets' Geno Smith | NJ.com

Quote:
"It became about the fact that Geno wasn't necessarily apologetic, and being in a way remorseful about the money, when saying he was going to pay IK back. You know, he didn't, and he was rather smug about it. So these guys got into it earlier in camp about this money. My report says Geno put his finger in [Enemkpali's] face and told the guy, 'Well, you're not going to do anything about it.'

"This wasn't the first time they had an issue over this same situation, and nothing came from it the first time. You know, the first time they got into an argument, you know, words were said, disrespect thrown both ways, both guys separate and walk away. So when you have that situation happen one time, I'm sure a lot of people weren't expecting it to get where it's gone."

geno cancelled the flight due to a death and he had to attend a funeral.

so let the $600 slide. by asking for it you're also bringing up that death every time. over some chump change. geno could probably handled it better but really man? i'd tell IK to fuck off too.

that small dick tough guy thing. you waved a finger in my face?!?! apparently that's open grounds to assault you. and lose my 600k job. it's a sucker punch if you and a co worker are talking shit/arguing and one of you suddenly punches the other. that's the definition of a sucker punch.

7Even already said what I was going to post, I agree with him. Sometimes when you poke a bear a bear will bite you. Geno basically thought he was untouchable and because of that was playing the tough guy role, tough guy got knocked the fuck out.

It looks like not so sexy Rexy and the Bills picked up IK Enemkpali so it will be business as usual for him after the league rules on any discipline.

The Bills play the Jets Nov.12th, maybe he'll get a chance to land a cleaner hit under his chin.

Murdoc, looks like you were right so far. I'm surprised how fast the process moved considering other challenges in the past. Almost every suspension Goodell makes gets overturned in the courts, that can't be good for business right or wrong.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/04/sp...flategate.html

In a major setback for the N.F.L., New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady prevailed in his battle to have his four-game suspension overturned on Thursday, as a federal judge reversed a ruling by Commissioner Roger Goodell to bench one of the league’s biggest stars in a dispute over underinflated balls he used in a January championship game.

Judge Richard M. Berman of Federal District Court in Manhattan did not rule on whether Brady tampered with the footballs in a bid for competitive advantage. Instead, he focused on the narrower question of whether the collective bargaining agreement between the N.F.L. and the players union gave Goodell the authority to carry out the suspension. Judge Berman ruled that it did not.

Berman said Brady could not be suspended for “general awareness” of others’ conduct, as an N.F.L. investigative report determined.

Document: Judge’s 40-Page Ruling in Dismissing Tom Brady Suspension

“The court finds that Brady had no notice that he could receive a four-game suspension for general awareness of ball deflation by others or participation in any scheme to deflate footballs, and noncooperation with the ensuing investigation,’’ Berman wrote.

“No N.F.L. policy or precedent notifies players that they may be disciplined (much less suspended) for general awareness of misconduct by others,’’ he added.

Even if the league believed Brady had obstructed the investigation, by having a cellphone destroyed before it could be fully examined, the judge sided with Brady’s argument that “there is no evidence of a record of past suspensions based purely on obstructing a league investigation.”

He found the N.F.L. did not give Brady adequate notice of the potential penalty for the misconduct he was accused of and it had been denied sufficient access to the N.F.L.’s investigative files.

pats have an insanely easy schedule this year.

dallas, eagles, broncos are their "hard" opponents. and they won't lose more then 1 against those 3 and could easily sweep those 3 teams. technically the colts too, but they don't count because pats will just run for 200 yds and 4 scores, again. for the 4th time against the colts.

I'm gonna wear my Patriots Superbowl 49 championship t-shirt to work next week just to troll all the Seahawks fans that I work with.

A rematch with the Seahawks in Superbowl 50 would be epic!

Fucking Drafted for two pools tonight.

One of them went extremely well (aside from me missing one round due to some technical glitches and the stupid computer picking Hopkins for me).

The other pool went to shit, 12 people and was mid pack, ended up in a weird position, and started just taking QB's.

Ended up getting Aaron Rodgers, peyton manning and Tom brady, first couple matchups are going to be rough, but should be able to trade a couple QB's for good players later on, and then the team should be pretty good.

Overally pretty excited about this season.
