Could the Seahawks trade Russell Wilson after the 2015 season?

Published 3 Comments

The Seattle Seahawks have arguably been the best team in the NFL in the last two years after they have made the last two Super Bowls, winning one and losing the other by less than a yard.

A key component of Seattle's success has been their now fourth year quarterback Russell Wilson whose incredible running abilities has provided one of the most dynamic offenses in the league.


The running abilities of Wilson, the rushing abilities of Marshawn Lynch and that incredible defensive unit have all contributed to the Seahawks success.

However Wilson is set to enter the final year of his rookie contract and he and the franchize have struggled to agree to a new contract for him.

Wilson reportedly wants to be the highest paid player in the NFL but so far the Seahawks haven't produced an offer which would make that a reality.

Everyone is wondering what could happen with Wilson and's Mike Florio believes that he could be set to leave Seattle.

Florio believes that Wilson will certainly be playing with Seattle for the 2015 season but after that, his future could lie elsewhere.

As oppose to his contract expiring and him becoming a free agent, Florio theorizes that the Seahawks would place the elusive franchize tag on Wilson and use him as a prop to inspire a huge trade.

However Florio does acknowledge that should Wilson lead the Seahawks to victory at Super Bowl 50, then Seattle would strive to make him a member of the Seahawks for his career.

What will happen?

The future of Wilson is set to dominate the NFL headlines for a long time and the longer the two go without agreeing to a new deal, the more the pressure builds on the Seahawks.

If they were to let him become a free agent, the St Louis Rams could be a possible landing spot for the two time Super Bowl quarterback.

Wilson will finally have the ability to show what he can do with a top class receiver in 2015 after the Seahawks traded for tight-end Jimmy Graham.
