Russell Wilson and the Seahawks are having an interesting offseason.
It was just a year ago when a report first surfaced that Russell Wilson would waive his no-trade clause and approve a deal to four teams — the Saints, Raiders, Cowboys or Bears. The two sides eventually worked things out and Wilson played with the team during the 2021 season.
Twelve months later, Wilson is still a Seahawk, but that doesn’t mean he will remain that way.
Per ESPN’s Brady Henderson, it’ll take “at least three first-round picks” to get the Seahawks’ attention for a deal.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network said on the Pat McAfee Show that he thinks Wilson will remain with the Seahawks.
“Until Seattle has a better option for them to compete next year I just don’t see them trading him,” Rapoport said. ” … I don’t know what QB gives them a better chance to win.”
Wilson has said only that his “hope and goal” is to stay with the Seahawks.
Amid an injury-marred campaign, Wilson completed 259-of-400 passes, his worst completion percentage (64.8) since 2017, his fewest passing yards (3,113) since 2018, and his lowest passing-touchdown (25) output since 2016.
