Russell Wilson insisted that he wanted to stay in Seattle.
Despite rumors about the quarterback during the offseason, Wilson said on Thursday that he did not ask the Seahawks to make a trade and “always wanted to play here.” According to the report of Pro Football Talk.
“I think there were some unfortunate setbacks after the season. Obviously you want to win everything, go all out and do your best. I think everyone on our team does this,” Wilson told reporters based on the PFT report. On Thursday, after the last OTA meeting of the Seahawks, Wilson took questions. “I think, unfortunately, it’s a bit too much. I think my ultimate goal is to win.”
it is February report Although Wilson did not request a trade, his agent made a list of the four teams that the quarterback will play for, which sparked speculation that he might consider leaving Seattle. The four teams are the Cowboys, Saints, Raiders and Bears.
Other reports stated that Wilson expressed disappointment with the Seahawks’ offensive methods, from the lack of protection on the offensive line to the coach’s disobedience on how he resolved the offense during the season.
Wilson told reporters on Thursday that “something could happen”, but he also said that “no transaction was requested.”
“I think at the end of the day, the reality is that I am here and I am here to win. I am here to win everything,” Wilson said, according to PFT.
The 2020 election campaign is another outstanding year for Wilson. He led the Seahawks to a 12-4 record with 4,212 passing yards, 513 rushing yards, 2 rushing touchdowns, completion rate (68.8) and passing touchdowns (40). Both set career best records.
One of the main obstacles to trading Wilson is his contract. His salary cap will reach 32 million U.S. dollars in 2021, 37 million U.S. dollars in 2022, and 40 million U.S. dollars in 2023. According to Spotrac.
