Russell Wilson Gifts Linemen with Amazon Stocks

I need more friends like him.

After becoming the NFL's highest paid player with a four-year deal worth $140 million, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson gifted every offensive lineman on the team with $12,000 in Amazon stocks.

In the last decade, Amazon's stock has grown by 2,200%. At that same pace (which reasonably won't happen), that $12,000 worth of stocks will be valued around $270,000. That takes a very good gift to a very, very good [insert that 7-word cuss word here] gift.

I need more friends like Russell Wilson.
