The Seattle Seahawks relationship with their franchise quarterback Russell Wilson is at odds and some believe it’s unrepairable.
In a report from Mike Sando of TheAthletic that took a closer look at the friction between Wilson and the organization, Sando highlights a time during the 2020-21 season where Wilson “stormed out” on the coaching staff after his ideas for fixing the Seahawks offense were dismissed.
Per the report:
“Before the Thursday night game against Arizona, Wilson met with his coaches. For some time, Wilson has sought — even pushed — for influence within the organization regarding scheme and personnel. In the meeting, he outlined his own ideas for how to fix the offense. His suggestions were dismissed, multiple sources told The Athletic — another reminder to Wilson that the Seahawks did not see him the same way he saw himself, as a player who had earned greater control over his situation, his future, his legacy. He stormed out of the room.”
Whether or not a trade is on the horizon, it’s clear Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are at odds about how much say the team’s quarterback should have and if the two are ever going to fix their relationship, they first need to both understand how much value Wilson brings to the team.
