Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are coming off a disastrous 7-10 season. This marked Seattle’s first losing season of Wilson’s 10-year tenure in the Pacific Northwest.
After many trade rumors last offseaon, it appears the two sides might be headed for a divorce this year.
Wilson was asked by Chris “Mad Dog” Russo if he actually wants out of Seattle this offseason.
“I’ve been fortunate to be able to play 10 amazing years in Seattle,” Wilson said. “My hope and goal is to be back there and keep winning there. That’s the vision, that’s the goal. That’s always been it, never been anything different.”
Words are just words, and things can change fairly quickly as we have seen many times over the years.
Ahead of the 2021 season, reports surfaced that Wilson was unhappy with the direction of the organization. Nothing has died down on this front following the struggles Seattle saw during the 2021 season.
He’s still relatively young at 33 and has two years remaining on his current contract. Currently, the Miami Dolphins boast the second-most cap room in the NFL and the franchise just hired a respective offensive mind Mike McDaniel away from the San Francisco 49ers to be their new head coach.
If the Dolphins choose to go that route, it would give young quarterback Tua Tagovailoa a chance to grow with a rebuilding franchise.
