The fact that the Seahawks are quarterback Russell Wilson He was asked if Sunday’s game would be his last in Seattle – and the fact that he answered it with anything other than “what the hell are you talking about?” – He confirms the real possibility that Wilson won’t return in 2022. It’s not because the Seahawks don’t want him.
Wilson has made it clear that he wants out after the 12-5 season in 2020. Although he has managed to fragment his discontent and embrace a situation he ultimately had no control over, anyone who paid attention to the situation in February and March who knows the 2021 team that February and March 2022 could be They lead to a conscious separation between the midfielder and the franchisee.
So where will he go? It’s too early for Wilson to have a wish list written in ink. Too many dominoes must fall before potential destinations become clear.
Frankly, if certain changes were made in Seattle (and the changes might need to be significant, including a new head coach), he would likely choose to stay. Elsewhere, the way in which the inevitable annual game of musical theater coaching chairs unfolds will go a long way toward determining the attractiveness or unattractiveness of a particular destination.
Which teams will change coaches? Which coaches will go to where? What is the difference with the new coaches that will be transitioning from the current midfielders? Which teams that retain their current coaches will lose their current players, whether they want to or not?
There are a lot of things that have to happen before the clouds can properly separate from Wilson. Until then, as Peter King and I discussed on Friday PFT LiveWill there be a clear destination that will give Wilson a chance to reach his goals?
“I want to win three more Super Bowls, that was in my head,” Wilson told reporters on Thursday. “For me, how do we get there, how does it happen, and how do we all do it? It’s a big goal if you don’t think you can do it, but at the same time we have the opportunity, in myself especially, I think about it every day” .
So where can he get there? In Seattle with enough changes? The Broncos appears to be the closest thing to the 2019 Buccaneers, who added Tom Brady Then over the top. But the Broncos are stuck in a split with the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes and chargers and Justin Herbert. It’s hardly a straight shot to the top.
But in fact there is no direct shot of the summit. Whether it’s three, two, or even one, there’s nowhere to shout, “We’re just Russell Wilson away from the championship!”
especially with Aaron Rodgers You are also likely to be looking for a new home.
