QB - DEN
After weeks of negotiations, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos have agreed to terms for a deal involving Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter. Quarterback Drew Lock, defensive tackle Shelby Harris, and tight end Noah Fant are all headed from Denver to Seattle in the deal.
The move instantly upgrades the fantasy values of wide receivers Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, and running back Javonte Williams. Tight end Albert Okwuegbunam also figures to benefit from not only the arrival of Wilson but the departure of Noah Fant. For the Seahawks, they acquire Lock, Fant, Harris, and multiple valuable assets but will likely be linked to quarterbacks in free agency, trades, and the NFL Draft in the coming weeks.
With Aaron Rodgers re-upping with the Packers, 9News' Mike Klis said on Twitter "Plan B would be Russell Wilson" for the Broncos.
Klis added, "Failing that, Plan C is fluid. Watson eventually? Hurts? Vet 'bridge' QB/Lock with [first-round] QB?" Of course, it takes two to tangle regarding a potential Wilson trade to the Broncos. But Klis is one of the top reporters covering the team, so his tweet shouldn't be completely ignored. The Broncos are looking to upgrade the QB position after a year of Teddy Bridgewater. A potential QB upgrade is good news for all Broncos pass-catchers.
According to NFL reporter Mike Garafolo, Seahawks coach Pete Carrol was quoted as saying the team has “no intention” of trading Russell Wilson this offseason.
Rumors have continued to speculate dating back to the last offseason that the Seahawks could move on from their star QB. The Pro Bowl QB even had a list of teams he would be willing to take a trade to be leaked to the media. The Seahawks and coach Pete Carrol have continued to debunk the rumors as well as Wilson himself.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson wants to explore all of his options this offseason and see what else might be out there for him, according to a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
While a trade should not be assumed, especially given Wilson's history with the team, it should not be dismissed as a possibility, either. Wilson completed 259 of 400 pass attempts this season for 3,113 yards, 25 touchdowns, and six interceptions through 15 games. He also rushed for 183 yards and two additional touchdowns.
Russell Wilson completed 15-of-26 passes for 238 yards with three touchdowns and one interception on Sunday against the Cardinals.
Wilson also added in one rushing touchdown. The offseason drama for the Seahawks and Wilson begins with a lot of unknowns coming up. Wilson closes the season with nine passing touchdowns in his final three games, looking like more like the player we have been accustomed to knowing most of his career compared to the rest of this past season.
