Russell Wilson is being hauled by the Seahawks in a proposed blockbuster trade.
If the Seattle Seahawks’ season continues as it has, the team will almost certainly face another offseason of speculation surrounding Russell Wilson’s future.
The Seahawks’ poor season, combined with Wilson’s injury, according to NBC Sports’ Peter King, could be the breaking point for the couple.
“It’s foolish to make any long-term judgments about a great player on such a bad day,” King explained on November 15, “when Wilson returned from finger surgery and looked inaccurate and ineffective, getting shut out for the first time in 166 Seattle starts.”
“His receivers didn’t help him out much, rarely getting open enough for him to have a chance at a long gain.
However, as I watched the futility of this game, I began to think it might be time for the Seahawks to consider Wilson’s replacement, especially if he becomes mopey again next offseason.
“For the time being, making the playoffs will be difficult, with Seattle 3-6, Arizona looming next week, and San Francisco and the Rams on the horizon after that.”
The Seahawks could get three first-round picks and a potential star player in a hypothetical trade for Wilson, according to the NFL insider, who sees the Panthers, Broncos, Steelers, Dolphins, and Eagles as possible landing spots.
“I just wonder if an 8-9 season makes Seattle GM John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll wonder if rewriting the script and getting three first-round picks and perhaps one top player from a Carolina, Denver, Pittsburgh, Miami, or Philadelphia is smarter than trying to keep Wilson happy,” King added.
“Schneider is a self-assured man.
In 2012, he persuaded Carroll that a short quarterback would be a star, and Wilson was selected in the third round.
I don’t think he’d be afraid to do it again.”
