Rumor Emerges Of Russell Wilson Replacing Eli Manning As New York Giants’ Quarterback

Russell Wilson.. Future New York Giant?

According to Fox Sports 1’s Colin Cowherd, this could happen:

Cowherd noted the rumor was coming from the “entertainment/agent world” and that everybody would probably deny it, but suggested Wilson to the Giants makes sense:


“Wilson’s wife is Ciara. She is a singer and an entertainer. She would prefer to live in New York. The Giants need a quarterback, and there’s nobody in the draft they love. So, just remember this. A lot of things add up: Last year of Russell’s contract. His wife would prefer New York. Seattle is not an entertainment mecca. … The Giants need a star quarterback to replace Eli [Manning].”

The question is how would Wilson end up in New York?

Would the Seahawks actually consider trading him while he was still under contract, even for only one more season? And would the Giants be willing to pay a boat load of draft picks such a monster deal would require?

It’s the offseason, folks.
