Are the Seahawks Actually Taking Calls About Moving QB Russell Wilson?

It may seem like an extreme long shot, but when it comes to making a trade of a quarterback the worth of Russell Wilson, the Seahawks would be foolish not to at least listen.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is stating that Wilson’s name has come up a few times as the team has gotten a couple of calls about if he’s available for a trade.

The report went on to say that GM John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll have zero interest in trading Wilson right now, but again, this is the NFL where things can change quickly if the stakes are made higher than they are at the moment.

Wilson has been under center for the Hawks since the 2012 season, meaning in 2021 he’ll be entering his 10th year as the team’s starter.

He’s made the Pro Bowl in seven seasons, led the team to two Super Bowl appearances, and won a Super Bowl in the 2013 season 43-8 when he and the Hawks defense dominated Hall of Fame QB Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

It’s not the first time that Wilson’s name has reportedly come up in trade rumors, as last May around the NFL Draft when there were rumors that Seattle offered Wilson to the Cleveland Browns for the first pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

    Seattle’s management has been asleep for years as Wilson runs for his life due to a totally inept OL. What happened to our offense that made 2 Super Bowls? The last few years have been deplorable on 3rd downs. WHY? They are a total disgrace on short yardage downs. Wilson needs help and management just watches
    and does nothing. Maybe we are looking at the wrong people who need to be booted. We have a lot of talent out there but our coaching needs an over-haul.
    Both sides of the line are so-so. We lack speed and size at every line position that are willing to put forth an effort.
    Maybe Schneider should step in for Wilson and see how well he does behind these
    linemen. Pete needs to graduate from his vanilla football he brought with him
    from the college ranks. We wait for all the real value players to be taken in the draft and then we go after bargain basement players. Yes, we do get some players that end up on the practice team. But building a team doesn’t start with second rate hopefuls destined for the practice team.
