Wilson announced the exciting news to everyone via Instagram with his wife Ciara lying right next to him.

“Hey Seattle, we got a deal,” said a shirtless wearing Wilson. “Go Hawks, but I’m gonna see y’all in the morning. Time for y’all to go to bed.”

“Finally we can go to sleep,” a tired sounding Ciara then chimed in.

But that’s not all the R&B singer had to say about the signing. On Tuesday she posted a photo of Wilson to her Instagram page and praised him for the work ethic he has.

“I watch you put everything on the line every Sunday in pure amazement,” she wrote.

“Your dedication, consistency, and commitment to the game never wavers. You’re always the first person in, and the last person out. You’re 1 of 1. The hardest working man I know! So proud of you baby! Giving God All the praise,” added the “Level Up” singer.

After Ciara’s message hit the Internet, people told her how much her marriage to Wilson motivates them.

“What an inspiring couple…bless you guys and your family,” one person wrote under her post.

“I also believe that you are one of the most hard working people. You both are wonderful for each other,” wrote another.

“A strong man is even stronger, with a strong woman! Congrats!!🎉🎉🎉” another person commented.

The deal was reportedly reached on Friday (April 12) after four days of negotiations, and Wilson gave the team a deadline of Monday (4/15) to close it out.

And according to, the new agreement also includes a no-trade clause, so at age 30 there’s a high chance that Wilson will end his career with the Seahawks.
