Russel Wilson Possibly Wants Out

Post by YikesVikes » Thu Feb 11, 2021 1:02 pm

There are rumors of Wilson being disgruntled and unhappy with the Seahawks. If he demands a trade, would you guys move Kirk for him. For me the answer is yes and twice on Sunday.

Interesting news.

Here's what Dan Patrick had to say after Wilson appeared on his show and complained about how often he was getting sacked (394 times in 9 seasons).
“A source told me that the Seahawks’ management is not happy with Russell Wilson and his camp for taking this to the media,” Patrick said. “You wonder if they’re going to be able to co-exist. . . . The current situation is not sustainable. That’s what I was told.”
Of course, if he's unhappy with his O-line situation, he's gonna want no part of Minnesota.

no top tier QB is going to consider MN....we have no OL. We have an out dated Coach who refuses input from others. Nothing good will happen till Wilf cleans house......good luck with that.

Cousins considered Minnesota and signed with Minnesota so that is not true

So ... (open can of worms alert) ... you're saying Kirk Cousins is a top-tier quarterback?

Depends on what they have to give up to get him.

If you're asking if I'd prefer Wilson over Cousins the answer would be yes as I think Wilson is one of the best QBs in the game.

Was it just me or did I see someone really say “Wilson isn’t being protected because he’s taking up too much cap space and they can’t afford OL” and then it was deleted?.....

Yeah....that should’ve been deleted

He must be. I learned this week he's the same player as DeShaun Watson and Russel Wilson. May as well throw Brady, Brees and Rodgers in the mix too!

We should feel great about this! But for some reason I still don't... :?

It is in a different thread and not deleted because it was a great point. It is not so cut and dry like your quote that isn't a quote, and there is more to it than just the cap, but Wilson is the 3rd highest paid QB in the NFL and the biggest reason his team can't afford to pay for better Olinemen. He is not an "overrated passer" like some have called him, so he is worth the money, but even with a top 3 QB that kind of cap hit hurts teams.

These QBs, Rodgers, Wilson and Watson complain about the teams around them while eating up 15% of the cap. Not that I blame them for wanting make as much as they can, but if they truly wanted a better team, they would take a pay cut so their team could spend the money on a better line or adding weapons.

I am not alone in my opinion of Wilson's cap hit making it more difficult for Seattle to build an Oline, it is a pretty common opinion among Seahawk fans.

I'd move Kirk just to move Kirk but to see RW in purple...

What's the salary situation ?
