Seahawks QB Russell Wilson won’t demand out of Seattle, until March…

Russell Wilson has been a loyal employee of the Seattle Seahawks since he was drafted in 2012. He’s been their franchise quarterback and face of the franchise.

But everyone is expecting Wilson to play his final season with the Seahawks in 2021, and then it’s likely that Seattle will trade him after the season.

Wilson was reportedly quoted saying that if he were to be traded, it would be to the Denver Broncos, New Orleans Saints or the New York Giants.

Wilson though shut down the rumors this past week, saying it’s a non-issue.

For now, Wilson is going to stay put like a loyal employee. He’ll give everything possible for the city of Seattle because Wilson is too classy to say anything else.

But when the season ends, and March rolls around, don’t be surprised if Wilson’s tune changes, especially if the Seahawks don’t improve the offensive line and make the changes needed.

The clock is ticking on Wilson’s tenure in Seattle.
