The back-and-forth media stories describing the face-off between Wilson and Seattle are catching the attention of many teams around the league. Wilson urges the team to give more help in protection and he has a right to complain.
In one interview Wilson indicates that he is not sure if he is available to play for another team. It is widely reported that Seahawks management is frustrated by that interview and the latest barrage of complaints about how Wilson is involved with the direction of the team.
Inside the Numbers
If Seattle will listen to trade offers from other teams the numbers are always an important part of any deal. Wilson recently had his $19 million base salary guaranteed for the 2021 season.
Wilson also has a no-trade clause, so he will have to approve the destination if he is moved. All of his numbers to include his cap hit for Seattle can be found here.
Where in the World Will Wilson go?
After the story of a supposed rift between Wilson and the Seahawks went public, the phone lines lit up. Seattle is receiving calls on Wilson and reports suggest they are not interested in trading Wilson, but they are listening.
According to the Russell Wilson odds, the Raiders and the Cowboys will be the first teams to make an offer that Seattle will not refuse. But with a talent like Wilson, the Colts, Broncos, Panthers, and the Patriots will also offer up a package deal. The only team that can be counted out is the San Francisco 349ers since they play Seattle twice a year.
It is not clear if Seattle will trade Wilson, but it is fun to speculate where he may play next season if they do.
