Russell Wilson

In 2014, Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks became the second Black quarterback to lead his team to win a Super Bowl – 43-8 against the Denver Broncos.

Wilson and the Seahawks would return to the Super Bowl in 2015. But, they failed to the New England Patriots. 

According to the Community Voice, Wilson won more games (75) than any other NFL quarterback in his first seven seasons and has the second-highest NFL career passer rating of all time.

In 2015, he signed a four-year, $87.6 million contract extension with the Seahawks, making him, at the time, the second-highest-paid player in the NFL. 

Wilson would in April 2019, sign a new four-year extension for $140 million, establishing him as the highest-paid player in the NFL.

He is 31 years old.
