Nice save, Russell.
Former Wisconsin standout and current NFL star Russell Wilson has signed a long-term contract with Nike, after leaving the apparel brand in 2014 and spending the majority of the last season sporting Under Armour gear. The Super Bowl XLVIII champion announced the news on Twitter yesterday.

We Googled “How to celebrate a new shoe deal” and that verbiage didn’t pop up, so Wilson may have righted his social media caption issues for now. Though few details have been revealed about his new contract, Wilson’s deal will likely be among the most lucrative in the league. He’s fourth among all quarterbacks–and eighth among all players–in jersey sales, and he’s already led the Seahawks to two Super Bowls in his first 4 years in the league.
This past July, Wilson inked an $87.6 million extension to remain in Seattle through the 2018-2019 season.
