Two trades to remake the future
I know that Wilson’s play has gone a bit downhill especially since returning from the finger injury, but he’s still worth more than 2 first-round picks. I just am not sure he’s worth 3 first-rounders anymore. In this trade, Seattle gets a cluster of excellent picks in this year’s draft to work on building the offensive line and defense. The Eagles practically give Hurts away to acquire Wilson, which is feasible knowing that the Eagles don’t have a lot of faith in Hurts. He begins 2022 as Seattle’s starter, and if 2022 shows that he isn’t the man for the job, the Seahawks look for a replacement quarterback in the 2023 draft. After all, there isn’t near as much QB talent in the coming draft.
If the Seahawks look to acquire the cream of the crop in terms of draft capital, New York is the ideal trade partner. Trading Russ to the Giants could result in two top-6 picks which would be great. The Seahawks could then shoot for top tackle prospects Evan Neal or Ikem Ekwonu, or attempt to get Derek Stingley Jr. should DJ Reed leave in free agency. While Daniel Jones has a significantly limited ceiling, you never know what he would do on a completely new team. I think it would be worth a shot given the top-line draft capital the Giants have to offer.
