There is already a report that Russell Wilson wants to explore his options about going to another team this offseason. But what would the Seattle Seahawks be like without Russell Wilson?
And before I start seeing the comments to this article being things like, “Stop with the rumors” or “Get those clicks, dude. Next time, give us news, not clickbait” (two comments I have really seen on Facebook lately to articles about Russell Wilson), just know this.
First, thank you for thinking I have the power to start rumors (I don’t).
Second, we here are 12th Man Rising don’t make stuff up. We only react to reports presented by credible reporters.
What would the Seahawks be like without Russell Wilson?
Third, we are a Seahawks site and if a credible reporter is running with a report about something involving the Seahawks that might change the direction of the franchise, why would we not comment on it?
Maybe those reports are accidentally false or maybe the information given to the reporter (in this case, the “explore his options” report was made by NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport) is made by an agent who wants to create drama.
But there is also the old adage, where there’s smoke there’s fire. I am not saying Russell Wilson is getting traded. If I had a guess, I would say he doesn’t. I also don’t want him to get traded; He is a good quarterback. But there is a chance he could and this is how a trade of the best quarterback in franchise history could affect the team.
