The Seattle Seahawks need to rebuild for 2022. One of the moves might be trading Russell Wilson. Does moving Wilson to the Dolphins make sense? Yes. But only with caveats.
Russell Wilson has had an odd season. He has thrown for 22 touchdown passes and just 5 interceptions in 13 games. His quarterback rating is 102.5 which is the fourth-best in the NFL among quarterbacks with 162 or more pass attempts. These are good numbers.
But Wilson’s completion percentage of 65.2 is his lowest since 2017. He is making far fewer impact plays with his legs and scrambling around and making magical plays out of nothing has always been an important part of Wilson’s game. His 3 carries a game is by far the lowest of his career as is his 13.7 yards rushing per game.
A Russell Wilson trade to the Dolphins shouldn’t be out of the question
So one of the questions the Seahawks will have to ask this offseason is if Russell Wilson has lost a step. If he has, is it because of age and taking too many hits over his career? Or is Wilson running less and being less accurate simply a by-product of a bad offensive design?
Wilson is still a franchise-quarterback and lots of teams would like to have a quarterback like him. So if Seattle is looking to make drastic moves this offseason and one of those moves includes trading Russell Wilson, then why not try to trade him to the Miami Dolphins?
