Number 1: New York Giants
Now we get to the clear number one choice for Seattle to trade Russell Wilson to. If Wilson truly is open to waiving his no-trade clause and one of those teams is really the Giants then it is clear why: Moving to New York helps Wilson off-the-field (and his wife too) more than on it. But for Seattle, this would be a win too.
That is if the Giants are willing to part with both their current top-ten draft picks in 2022 and possibly quarterback Daniel Jones. Jones isn’t great but he at least has starting NFL experience and is young enough to possibly get better. Is he a good long-term starter in the NFL? Doubtful. Is he a quarterback Seattle wants to build its team around? Again, doubtful.
But if Seattle gets both first-round choices from New York, one of those needs to be a quarterback. Jones is signed through 2022 so if nothing else he would bring NFL experience and nothing more than a one-year commitment.
In the meantime, the Seahawks would save tons of cap room by trading Wilson, get a one-year (at worst) replacement for him all the while drafting Wilson’s replacement and a quarterback who should have high upside.
I am not saying to trade Russell Wilson. But if he is truly open to waiving his no-trade clause to go to the Saints, Broncos and Giants and Seattle does move him, the Giants need to be the team they trade Wilson to.
