Week In Review: 7/26/15 – 8/2/15

The headlines from the past week at PFR:

Extensions:

  • The Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson agreed to a four-year, $87.6MM extension. The deal, which keeps Wilson under contract through 2019, includes $31.7MM in full guarantees.
  • The Seahawks also extended linebacker Bobby Wagner, inking him to a four-year deal that will keep him in Seattle through 2019. The pact is worth $43MM in total, and contains $22MM in guarantees.
  • Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan signed a five-year extension with Washington that is worth $57.5MM.
  • The Vikings inked kicker Blair Walsh to a four-year deal, agreeing to a pact that will pay him $14MM through 2019.

Suspension News:

  • The NFL upheld Patriots quarterback Tom Brady‘s four-game suspension, arguing that Brady destroyed his cell phone, which may have contained evidence that he was complicit in the DeflateGate scandal. Brady will challenge the decision in federal court.
  • The league reduced Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell‘s suspension from three games to two.

    “Suspension News:

    Except that Brady’s suspension is 4 games, not 3.
