REPORT: Russell Wilson Considering Chicago Bears As Top Landing Spot For Various Reasons
There has been an assortment of talks about Russell Wilson making his exit from the Seattle Seahawks, but for now, it is simply just talks.
In the event that things could change, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter released the four possible trade locations Wilson would approve under his current no-trade clause contract: the Cowboys, Saints, Raiders or Bears.
The most shocking name in that list is clearly the Chicago Bears, whose offense ranked among the lowest in the NFL.
ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler explained why Wilson likes the Bears.
“Russell Wilson’s thinking is broader. It’s big picture from what I’m told,” Fowler said on Friday’s episode of Get Up. “This is a guy who wants to be in an NFL managerial position in the future — maybe even NFL ownership. so in a case like Chicago, he’s not thinking in terms of their struggles on offense recently — he’s thinking in terms of turning around a franchise that is historically great but had struggles on offense for the better part of 20 years. He would love that kind of story.”
Chicago stars Cordarrelle Patterson and Tarik Cohen are already both on board with the idea of Wilson bringing his talent to the team.
