Massive Trade Rumor Has Cowboys Sending Ezekiel Elliott To Seahawks For Russell Wilson
The Dallas Cowboys did not think they would be rumored in Russell Wilson trade talks this offseason, but that is exactly what happened when it was reported that he would be willing to waive his no-trade clause to play for them.
Fox Sports personality Jason McIntyre added his opinion to the situation, and implored the Dallas Cowboys to send running back Ezekiel Elliott to Seattle as part of a blockbuster trade package for the QB.
“Jerry Jones, are you kidding me? This is a division for the taking if Russell Wilson is your quarterback. He instantly makes you the team to beat in the NFC East. I don’t know that there’s any decision at all here,” McIntyre said. “I say, ‘Jerry Jones, pick up the phone.’
I say, ‘Hey, Seattle, you want our number one pick this year? You want our number two? You want our number one in 2022?’ Seattle has said [they] want to run the football and play defense. I say, ‘Zeke Elliott, we had a good run. But I’m going to put you in that package.’ Zeke Elliott, two number ones, and a number two. I bring in Russ.”
“Russell Wilson will cover up a lot of those ugly warts that Dak Prescott could not,” he said. “Last four seasons, Dak Prescott: 6-20 against teams that finished with a winning record. For whatever reason, he did not show up great against the elite teams. I know the defense wasn’t good, and we could talk about the special teams was inferior, and the coaching, but Russell Wilson is a massive upgrade over Dak Prescott. Russ instantly makes them a 10- or 11-win team, a Super Bowl contender.”
ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler eazed the noise surrounding the rumors when he said the Cowboys are “unfazed” by the swirling speculation.
The Cowboys maintain they have every intention of signing Dak Prescott to a long-term deal.
