Russell Wilson implies Seattle departure

The Wilson era in Seattle could be over by the end of this season.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson made headlines after claiming to “strongly consider’o waiving his no-trade clause for three teams broke on Wednesday, Dec. 8.

These three teams include the Denver Broncos, New Orleans Saints, and New York Giants.

This news comes after the Seahawks underwhelming performance this season. The team is currently sitting at 4-8 and last in their division. Seattle is also projected to have their first losing season with Wilson as their starting quarterback.

This may not come as a surprise for most fans since this is the second time Wilson has publicly announced which teams he would like to go to.

During this past offseason, Wilson’s agent said that the quarterbacks preferred trade destinations include the Chicago BearsDallas CowboysLas Vegas Raiders, and New Orleans Saints.

A couple of offseason moves by the Seahawks later, Wilson changed his viewpoint on the team. He even denied the fact that he did not want to be a Seahawk anymore.

“There was a lot of people, there was a whole thing saying I requested a trade, and that’s just not true,” Wilson said. “I didn’t request a trade. Everything kind of started from there. Obviously, tons of teams were calling and I think that the reality was I didn’t want to go anywhere else, I wanted to play in Seattle. But if I had to go somewhere, these are the teams I would go to or consider. At the end of the day I have a no-trade clause, right?”

That leads us to where we are today. Wilson missed some some due to a finger injury and seems to get more frustrated with the his team the deeper we get into the season.

Although Wilson cannot be traded now due to the trade deadline passing, this news could make for a very interesting offseason.
