NFL Rumors: Russell Wilson scrubs all Seahawks stuff off social media accounts; is a trade coming soon?

Written by Doug Rush

For the last six months, we have been speculating about Russell Wilson getting traded.

Wilson has wanted to explore his options outside of the Seattle Seahawks and with Seattle potentially looking at a possible rebuild, plus no first-round picks, a trade of Wilson makes sense.

In the latest of the saga with Wilson and Seattle, he has scrubbed his social media accounts of everything Seahawks related.

So what now? More like, where now?

Back in the middle of the season, Wilson’s three reported destinations were the New York Giants, Denver Broncos and New Orleans Saints.

The Giants don’t have the cap space and can’t afford to trace for Wilson. The Broncos appear more focused on trying to land Aaron Rodgers. The Saints are an option.

So are the Philadelphia Eagles, who have three first round picks and could part with Jalen Hurts. The Washington Commanders do need a quarterback too., and with Tom Brady retiring, so do the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

With the NFL Draft about two months away, the Seahawks have a major decision to make about their quarterback and whether they are keeping him or moving him elsewhere.
