Colin Cowherd is certainly a man who loves to hear the sound of his own voice. That was proven true on Thursday when he unveiled an insane trade proposal involving Russell Wilson.
On the latest episode of The Herd, FOX Sports’ Colin Cowherd made the shocking claim that he would give up his first-round pick every year until Wilson is no longer on the team.
“If you’re the Giants, what would you give up for Russell Wilson? I as the general manager, would give you every first-round pick until he’s not a Giant,” Cowherd said. “Because by the way, if I’m keeping him for nine years, he’s winning a lot of games. He’s filling my stadium, he’s selling my merchandise, he puts me on television. Right now, the Giants are so bad everywhere except left tackle, one defensive tackle, a decent cornerback, a solid rookie wide receiver. They’re so bad everywhere, I would do it.”

The quarterback is a future Hall of Famer still capable of playing at a high level. He’s also under contract through 2023, so Seattle really has no reason to move on.
According to multiple reports last year, Wilson would be okay with a trade to three teams currently. Those three teams are the New York Giants, New Orleans Saints and the Denver Broncos. According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, though, the Seahawks have no plans to trade Wilson in 2022.
“Sources familiar with the Seahawks’ thinking say the team has no plans to trade Wilson this offseason and is proceeding as if he’ll be their QB in 2022, regardless of any other big changes in the aftermath of a disappointing season that concludes Sunday against the Cardinals,” he wrote.
Wilson finished this season with 3,113 yards passing, and 25 touchdown throws.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
