REPORT: Russell Wilson Getting Traded By Seahawks Is “Inevitable” (VIDEO)
The next QB dominoe to fall appears to be Russell Wilson.
On Friday’s edition of Get Up, ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler updated the situation between the disgruntled QB and the Seattle Seahawks.
“Several high-ranking people I’ve spoken to believe [a Russell Wilson trade] is an inevitability, maybe not this off-season, but next off-season because of the growing tension that isn’t right now, it’s been a couple years,” Fowler said.
Fowler’s sources within the franchise are fully expecting Wilson to return for a 10th season. Wilson, himself, does not expect to be traded this offseason but that doesn’t suddenly cure everything that is wrong.
“Russell Wilson has grown increasingly frustrated with the lack of personnel input, particularly the investment from the team on the offensive line over the last 8-10 years,” Fowler said. “He’s wanted more of that. He hasn’t gotten it. It’s resulted in some heating up moments internally, with the team and the coaching staff.”
Wilson hasn’t officially requested a trade, but reports state he had list of teams that he would welcome a trade to: the Cowboys, Saints, Raiders or Bears.
“He’s really throwing a lot of different flavors out there, and that’s by design from what I’m told,” Fowler said. “He wants to give himself a variety of options. This is a short list he’s had for a while in his back pocket.”
