Russell Wilson who recently signed a deal with the Seahawks making him the highest-paid player in the NFL has just gifted the entire Seahawks offensive line with $12,000 in Amazon stock, a total of $156,000 for the 13 players.
Each player got a letter with the stock gift explaining why #3 hooked them up.
“Every Sunday we go to battle together. You sacrifice your physical and mental well-being to protect me, which in turn allows me to provide and care for my family. This does not go unnoticed and it is never forgotten” Wilson wrote.
Russell says he wants to help his teammates prepare for life after football and believes stock in Amazon will help these players achieve their dreams.
“When I sat down to think of ways to honor your dedication a dozen different ideas came to mind. Some were flashy, some were cool, but I wanted to give you something that had a lasting impact. Something that would affect the lives of you, your family, and your children.You have invested in my life … this is my investment into yours”.
