For the second-straight offseason, there has been a ton of noise surrounding a potential trade of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
The Seahawks remain adamant they are not trying to trade Russell, but it did not stop one team from making a “strong offer.”
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Washington Commanders reportedly made a “strong offer” to get Wilson. But it apparently “didn’t go anywhere.”
What exactly a “strong offer” is when it comes to teams looking to pry Wilson away from the Seahawks remains to be seen. Last year the Chicago Bears offered three first round picks, which was obviously not a strong enough offer to make a trade happen.
When asked about the possibility of playing for Washington, Wilson had this to say:
“I’m from Richmond, I know what you mean,” he said this week in a visit on the “Today Show.” “I’ve got people hitting me up every day, all my friends and all that from the East Coast.
“But Seattle’s the place that I’m at right now and I love it, and it’s great, man.”
The 2021 season marked the first time we saw complete chaos from the Seahawks as the team struggled to put together victories. The Seahawks finished the season with a 7-10 record as Wilson missed several games. Even when he came back, the team was simply not good enough to get themselves to the postseason.
It appeared to signal the end of his tenure. Now, we wait and see.
