Russell Wilson is talking about his Seahawks’ future, even if nobody asked him about it.
During his Thursday press conference, Wilson was asked about Bobby Wagner’s comments and said he has “joy and gratitude” for everything about his time with the Seahawks and “how many amazing moments we’ve had” during his time in Seattle.
Wilson then made an interesting unsolicited comment about his own future.
“I know for me personally, I hope it’s not my last game. But at the same time, I know it won’t be my last game in the NFL. I’m just focused on today and getting better today. That’s my goal. I love this city and I love this moment. I love these guys and we gotta make sure we get better today. That’s all that matters,” Wilson said.
The Seahawks are playing their home finale on Sunday, so Wilson is clearly thinking this may very well be a very emotional game for him if he does move on from the franchise in the offseason.
The current 5-10 record is easily the worst record Wilson has ever had since being behind center with the Seahawks. Wilson has two seasons after this one remaining on the $140 million contract extension he signed with the only NFL team he’s known.
This season is also the first one where he has missed games after he injured the middle finger on his throwing hand in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams back in October. He missed three games, but would return some four weeks later. The Seahawks are 2-5 since his return.
