During an off-season where many star football players were long overdue for a contract extension, it isn 't too absurd to claim that Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was the most deserving. In pursuit to keep their dynasty flourishing, Seattle took their time with the whole process and it worked out quite well in their favor.

This isn 't an argument proclaiming he is the best quarterback in football by any means -- that 's Aaron Rodgers. But in terms of efficiency, wins, and talent Wilson has to be in the discussion as one of the best.
