Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson became the highest-paid player in the National Football League earlier this month. Now, he’s reportedly spreading the wealth to the players assigned with protecting him.

TMZ Sports reported Monday that Wilson gave $156,000 worth of Amazonstock to the 13 offensive linemen, or $12,000 each. The report said each lineman got a letter from Wilson through his media production company, West2East Empire.
