After a slow 2-4 start, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson began hearing some "static" from fans who were criticizing him for concentrating more on his blossoming relationship with pop star Ciara than on football. It didn't help that, during the offseason, the Seahawks quarterback had signed a massive contract extension worth millions of dollars.

Surely the savvy signal-caller would quell any doubts as to his dedication to the team first by keeping a low profile, right?

In the words of ESPN's Lee Corso, "Not so fast!"

Via her Instagram account, Ciara posted a selfie of her and her new beau (the two have been a public item since April) on the water in Mexico during the team's bye week heading into a Sunday night showdown with division-leading Arizona.

The couple was also spied by paparazzi and many of those pics have been published elsewhere.
