It appears Russell Wilson’s days in Seattle are numbered.
On Friday’s edition of Get Up, ESPN NFL Insider Jeremy Fowler updated the situation between the disgruntled QB and the Seahawks:
“Several high-ranking people I’ve spoken to believe [a Russell Wilson trade] is an inevitability, maybe not this off-season, but next off-season because of the growing tension that isn’t right now, it’s been a couple years.”
Here’s the clip:
Fowler’s sources within the franchise are fully expecting Wilson to return for a 10th season. Wilson, himself, does not expect to be traded this offseason but that doesn’t suddenly cure everything that is wrong:
“Russell Wilson has grown increasingly frustrated with the lack of personnel input, particularly the investment from the team on the offensive line over the last 8-10 years. He’s wanted more of that. He hasn’t gotten it. It’s resulted in some heating up moments internally, with the team and the coaching staff.”
Wilson hasn’t officially requested a trade, but reports state he had list of teams that he would welcome a trade to: the Cowboys, Saints, Raiders or Bears.
