Russell Wilson is in the news following Sunday’s Super Bowl, and not for just being named the NFL’s Man of the Year. Wilson appeared on the Dan Patrick show and was asked if he’s available for a possible trade with another team…
The discussion about Wilson questioning his future in Seattle has been the rage on sports talk shows throughout the country since this quote Tuesday. The team, meanwhile, reportedly admits they have received inquiries about whether Wilson is available. The answer was simply, NO.
One of the imperatives in off-season as the Seahawks introduce a new offensive coordinator is to do better to protect Wilson. The topic of sacks also came up during his interview with Dan Patrick. Russell has been sacked 396-times in his 9-year NFL career, more than any other quarterback. Wilson said he thinks they need to improve up front and that he’d like to have a say in personnel issues moving forward.
