KEY POINTS

  • Russell Wilson prefers to stay with the Seattle Seahawks although an NFL trade will be considered
  • The Seahawks could explore a quarterback swap with the Dallas Cowboys
  • Wilson wants a voice in personnel management like Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans

In all his nine NFL seasons, Russell Wilson is usually composed.

That was until last season when he was visibly frustrated and somehow shared the same sentiment that Deshaun Watson had with the Houston Texans, that of which is to have a voice in personnel decisions.

Fast-forward to today, that desire has mellowed down. But pundits continue to speculate on whether the one-time Super Bowl champion would seek a trade away from the Seattle Seahawks.

The 32-year-old has not demanded a trade although his agent says that anything can happen if the NFL team considers deals on the table.

Several teams could explore options for Wilson, the 2020 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. But for now, he prefers to stay in Seattle if given the choice–a team where has played for since entering the NFL ranks in 2012.

However, it cannot be discounted that some teams could make a go at the Ohio native. Here are some clubs that could swoop in.

Dallas Cowboys

Of all the NFL teams that could consider Wilson is the Dallas Cowboys. Dak Prescott comes to mind and the chatter has gotten louder because the 27-year-old has yet to sign a long-term contract with the team.

A quarterback swap could make sense, making this a scenario worth monitoring.

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears would be an interesting landing spot for Wilson. The franchise is searching for a new quarterback, something that could help the team progress.

But to land the 32-year-old quarterback, the Seahawks may be interested only in good draft picks. Chicago does not own high picks right now, so the best they could offer is multiple first-rounders.

New Orleans Saints

If Wilson wants another run at Super Bowl, the New Orleans Saints are it.

New Orleans has been performing well the past NFL seasons, backed by the fact they have one of the league’s most talented rosters.

Aside from that, Wilson could succeed Drew Brees, someone who he idolizes. The only thing that may hold this back is the Saints' salary cap situation.

New Orleans may have problems trying to maintain the team for several years.

Unless things change, Wilson remains a Seahawk. Further, the fact that he holds a full no-trade clause means that he has the last say on where he would go–assuming Seattle decides to pull the NFL trade trigger.
