1 NFL Frontrunner For Russell Wilson May Give Ciara A Job Too

Russell Wilson is looking for a new home next season, and one NFL team may be willing to provide him with that and more.

Following Wilson’s messy divorce with the Denver Broncos this year, two clear frontrunners for his services emerged.

Since then, the list has been whittled down to just one team.

That squad?

The Las Vegas Raiders.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, an NFL executive recent informed him that Wilson-to-Vegas has real legs.

“[The Raiders] need a vet, and they are one of Wilson’s original teams he wanted to go to,” the executive said.

In addition, the executive also pointed out that Wilson’s wife, Ciara, might be able to get a job out of him joining Mark Davis’ organization.

“He’d stay in the [AFC West], West Coast, and [Wilson’s wife] Ciara can do a [Las Vegas] residency [as a live performer].”

Wilson’s relationship with Ciara is very tight. The pair frequently goes viral for everything from racy videos of them dancing together to their provocative date nights to their messy situation with Vanessa Bryant.

If there is one person who would strongly consider his next team’s influence on his wife and her career it is definitely Wilson.

That said, financial realities make this entire situation a very complicated one.

Wilson originally inked a five-year, $243 million deal with the Broncos after being trade do Denver by the Seattle Seahawks.

As a result, he is due a guaranteed $39 million in 2024 and his $37 million salary for 2025 becomes fully guaranteed on March 17. Over the three-year span between 2025 and 2028 Wilson will carry a salary cap hit in excess of $50 million annually. Should Denver opt to cut him, the organization will get smacked with an $85 million dead salary cap hit.

Needless to say, all parties involved have a lot to think about.

Will Wilson and Ciara ultimately end up in Las Vegas repping for the Raiders once everything is said and done this offseason? Time will tell.
