Is Seahawks ready to listen to Russell Wilson’s commercial offers?
Russell Wilson took the commercial buzz surrounding him to new heights when his agent openly named for the teams the quarterback would be open to joining, and the tension between the two sides does not appear to be easing.
Wilson and the Seahawks are both unhappy with each other. Wilson feels he doesn’t have enough voice in the organization, and Seattle chiefs are unhappy with him for publicly voicing his frustrations. NFL Network’s Michael Silver on Wednesday described the drama as “a complicated situation,” but said the Seahawks were ready to listen to commercial offers for their franchise quarterback.
Wilson’s agent Mark Rodgers said last week that Wilson wants to stay in Seattle but would give up its no-trade clause for the Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, Las Vegas Raiders or Chicago Bears.
“I believe they will obviously listen to offers from these four teams,” said Silver. “Wilson has some control because of the no-trade clause. I think Pete Carroll considers himself a problem solver and will try to find a way to fix this.
“If (the 2021 season) isn’t going well, are you going to trade Russell Wilson after the season or say to Pete Carroll, ‘Hey man, it’s been a great race, but we’re going to bring in a coach that Russell Wilson wants. play for? I’m not saying it’s going to happen, but there are a lot of bullets in the air and it’s not a good situation at the moment.
