Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson recently had an awesome gift for his linemen.

The superstar gunslinger gifted the men responsible for protecting him $12,000 in Amazon stock each, according to TMZ late Monday. (RELATED: Russell Wilson Agrees To $140 Million Extension With The Seahawks, Gets $65 Million Signing Bonus)

The move from Wilson cost him more than $150,000. He should be able to afford it because he did just ink a massive contract extension worth up to $140 million with the Seahawks.

This is one hell of a cool thing for Wilson to do. Everybody knows a great quarterback takes care of his offensive line.

Darren Rovell posted a list of a bunch of different gifts quarterbacks have given lineman. There’s a lot of cool stuff on there like guns and such. Outside of Tom Brady gifting cars, Wilson’s Amazon stock may be the best QB-lineman gift yet.

I always knew the former Wisconsin star was one of the good guys. I never had any doubt about it, and the fact he looks out for those who look out for him is just further proof of that fact.

If you’re not a fan of him as a person, then the problem is likely with you. I don’t know how anybody could cheer against him.

Kings stay kings, and Wilson just made sure his lineman will cover his back at all times next season. Major props to him.
