Russell Wilson said he wants to play for the Seahawks "forever."
09 February 2021
A couple teams have reportedly inquired about Wilson's availability following the Seattle offense's late-season collapse. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said there is "no chance" the Seahawks would deal away their franchise player. "I'm not sure if I'm available or not," Wilson said Tuesday in response to a question about teams checking on his availability. "That's a Seahawks question." These sort of rumors will persist for as long as Pete Carroll insists on having a run-first offense -- a philosophy on which Carroll doubled down in that aftermath of the team's offensive slump that ended with a demoralizing playoff loss to the Rams. A team would likely have to offer a never-before-seen trove of draft picks to acquire the 32-year-old Wilson.
