Another day, another bombshell report involving Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks.
Wilson made it abundantly clear that he’s not thrilled with his current situation. He would like to have more say in the team’s offensive personnel decisions, but that hasn’t happened yet. Things took a turn for the worse when his agent then listed four teams his client wouldn’t mind playing for if he’s traded.
Though a trade hasn’t materialized up to this point, ESPN insider Dianna Russini pointed out that neither side has tried to defuse the situation.
“Two months ago, I would’ve told you there’s no chance this is happening. The Seattle Seahawks are not trading Russell Wilson,” Russini said on Get Up. “But this thing has been picking up steam over the last two weeks. Both sides have done nothing to put this to bed. Russell Wilson has not come out and said ‘I want to play for the Seattle Seahawks’ and the front office has done nothing to show Russell is their guy.”
Russini then had a telling comment about Wilson’s future in Seattle.
“Those in league circles believe that there’s a good chance this could happen if a team is desperate enough to make this trade.”

Russini made it seem like the Bears and Saints are the only two teams on Wilson’s wishlist that are in the market for a quarterback.
Chicago is reportedly so desperate for a game-changer at quarterback that it’s willing to throw a “boatload of picks” at Seattle for Wilson.
Do you think Wilson will get traded this offseason?
