Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson says he wants to play until 203, after signing the most lucrative deal in NFL history.

30 year old Wilson, signed a four-year, 140 million dollar contract extension with a 65 million dollar signing bonus.

The deal means Wilson, who won the Super Bowl with the Seahawks in 2014, is under contract in Seattle until the end of the 2023 season.

Wilson’s contract, worth 35 million dollars a year, surpasses Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ 33.5 million deal.

Wilson has led Seattle to the play-offs in six of his seven seasons with the team. They beat the Denver Broncos in the 2014 Super Bowl before defeat by the New England Patriots in 2015.

He gave the team a deadline of Monday to offer him a deal, but said he never wanted to play for another side.
