Seahawks don’t plan to trade Russell Wilson after season’s end

By Tim Weaver

There’s only a few hours remaining in the Seahawks’ 2021 season, the franchise’s first losing campaign in 10 years. After such a disappointing season, it’s tempting to clean house and start over next year with a clean slate. It doesn’t seem that’s the way the team will go, though. According to a report by Mike Garafolo at NFL.com, Seattle has no plans on trading starting quarterback Russell Wilson.

“Sources familiar with the Seahawks’ thinking say the team has no plans to trade Wilson this offseason and is proceeding as if he’ll be their QB in 2022, regardless of any other big changes in the aftermath of a disappointing season that concludes today against the Cardinals.”

While Wilson’s game could use some fine-tuning, he’s not the reason why this team is 6-10 going into their last game of the season. Heading into Week 18, Wilson has 22 touchdown passes to go with five interceptions, 2,875 yards and a respectable 102.5 passer rating.

Anything can happen, but our best guess is that we won’t see any major fireworks over the next few days. Offensive coordinator Shane Waldron might be in some danger, but it’s unlikely anyone else gets fired.
