In the wake of signing a contract last week that made him the highest-paid player in the NFL, Russell Wilson thanked his offensive lineman by giving all 13 of the team’s offensive lineman $12,000 in Amazon.com stock.
TMZ Sports reported it first Monday, publishing a letter Wilson sent to each offensive lineman explaining the gift.
“Every Sunday we go to battle together,” Wilson wrote as reported by TMZ. “… 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 that he decided on stock as a way to give a gift that can have a lasting impact on their lives.
Great gift by Russell Wilson!
