Russell Wilson playing season under insurance policy

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson took out an insurance policy to protect him in case he suffers a career-ending injury, according to ESPN. Wilson is due only $1.5 million this year in the final year of his contract. Wilson is in talks with the Seahawks toward a new blockbuster deal, but nothing has been struck. "Yeah, I'm prepared for that 100 percent if that's the case,'' Wilson said recently when asked if he would be comfortable playing out his contract this year. "I want to be here for a long time. I just have to get ready to play. I love the game and I love being out here with these guys. Ultimately, I just take it one day at a time and see where it takes me."
