Russell Wilson was about four inches away from $20 million this spring. Too bad for him they were missing from the top of his head.
Wilson barely is 5-feet-11. So the NFL automatically figured he’d be a footstool for Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. They went 1-2 in the draft, while Wilson went 75th.
The only thing that really separated them, however, was the fact that Luck is 6-4 and Griffin is 6-3. Well, that and the contracts they signed.
Luck got $22.1 million and Griffin $21.1 million for four years. Wilson got four years at $2.99 million.
Who’s standing tallest now?
