Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have been the subject of a lot of trade speculation in recent weeks.
The Seahawks had a disappointing 2021 season, missing out on the playoffs, leading many to wonder if this will be it for Pete Carroll and his starting quarterback in Seattle.
However, Wilson has made it clear that he wants to stick around.
“For me, I think what I’m really super passionate about obviously, my goal is to win more Super Bowls. And my plan is to win them here. It’s that simple. There’s nothing really else other than that,” Wilson said this week.
Sunday morning, NFL.com reported that the Seahawks have no plans to trade Wilson.

It will be interesting to see if that mindset holds when the offers come in.
“Extend DK and Diggs, draft decently, and sign a few solid free agents and we’re right back to being contenders,” one Seahawks fan suggested.
“I’m surprised by this. We don’t know what the offseason will look like and whether the Seahawks will rebuild or not. Who knows what will happen with Pete Carroll too,” another fan added on social media.
“I seem to remember the Cardinals saying all offseason that Josh Rosen was their QB until draft night when they selected Kyler Murray and traded Josh to Miami the next day. Words mean very little in the NFL this time of year,” one fan added.
That last point is extremely true. Talk is pretty cheap this time of the year.
Do you see Wilson playing for Seattle in 2022?
