30-year-old Russell Wilson says after seven years in the NFL that he’s just getting started. In fact, the current highest paid player in the history of the league, has a goal of playing until he’s 45.
The Seahawks quarterback revealed his goal and much more in a recent interview with Michael Silver of NFL.com:
“Seven years has gone by so fast,” Wilson said. “You think about just turning 30 years and what I have for the rest of my career — for the next 10-15 years — I’m just fired up about it. You think about some of the best quarterbacks of all time, guys like Drew (Brees), guys like Tom (Brady), who (are playing into their 40s). I really look up to those guys. There’s so much more to do.”
Did Wilson say 15 years… meaning he plans to play until he’s 45?
“Yeah, yeah,” he replied. “That’s the goal. I’m just fired up for it.”
It’s a good thing Wilson has that concussion water. He’s going to need it if he wants to play another 15 years at a high level.
