Per NFL insider Jordan Schultz, Russell Wilson “would strongly consider waiving his no-trade clause” to three teams. Which team works best for the Seattle Seahawks to work out a trade with?
Let me preface everything I am about to write is I am not hoping Russell Wilson gets traded. He is the best Seahawks quarterback in franchise history. He hasn’t been his best in 2021 but he has been great for most of a decade and is still just 33 years old. Wilson has a lot of years left.
Also, every reporter has to keep their name in readers’ minds and sometimes it’s easy to inflame a situation with a popular player whose team is having a bad year. Jordan Schultz has a lot more inside information than I have. However, I am a little leary of a person who pins to their Twitter profile some news they broke weeks ago. Like, “Hey! Look at me! I knew something before most other people did! Yay!”
Which team should the Seattle Seahawks trade Russell Wilson to?
Maybe Russell Wilson does want out of Seattle as the team is likely in for a rebuild soon and this means a lesser chance for Wilson to win another Super Bowl with the Seahawks. Wilson is also a businessman off the field and one of the teams he reportedly would waive his no-trade clause for is the Giants. As in, the New York football Giants. New York is one of the entertainment meccas of the world and Wilson may want to live there so that after he retires he remains in the limelight.
So let’s play this latest game of “Where’s Russ going?” Because according to Schultz, Russell Wilson would waive his no-trade clause for the Giants, New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos. Which of these three teams would be the best team for Seattle to trade Wilson to?
