The Russell Wilson drama continues in Seattle. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that while the Seahawks' franchise quarterback has not formally requested a trade and would like to stay in Seattle, he would accept trades to the Cowboys, Saints, Raiders, and Bears. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)
It's a fascinating development after all seemed to be well in Seattle for quite some time. Now, while it appears Wilson hopes to mend his relationship with the Seahawks, the fact that he would waive his no-trade clause for four destinations (including three with quarterbacks set to hit the open market) is certainly significant. Wilson, 32, has made the Pro Bowl in seven of his nine seasons. He is a talented and mobile player with the ability to alter an entire franchise. While nothing is imminent, the Wilson saga warrants monitoring as free agency approaches. No matter what happens, with Wilson and Deshaun Watson reportedly unhappy, the next few months could be quite entertaining.
