The Seattle Seahawks should not have any interest in trading Russell Wilson. In all likelihood, Mr. Unlimited won't be going anywhere anytime soon. However, the rumblings out of Wilson's camp are getting increasingly strange.

In the past few days alone, we've seen reports emerge that teams are calling Seattle to explore potential Wilson deals, as rumors swirl about his happiness with the team. In fact, Wilson's public comments have been the driving force behind some of that speculation.

In an interview with Dan Patrick, Wilson expressed some real uncertainty about his future with the organization. He also sort of threw his offensive line under the bus, highlighting how frustrated he is with his (admittedly, outrageously high) sack total. That's very un-Wilson like.

Though any potential deal still feels incredibly unlikely, here are three teams that could make a push to land the seven-time Pro Bowler if his relationship with Seattle ever becomes unsalvageable.

3. Washington Football Team

Putting Wilson on this iteration of the Washington Football Team would be reminiscent of his early days with the Legion of Boom. Washington boasts a dominant, young defense with a decent O-Line and a great WR1 in Terry McLaurin. Wilson would be the piece to get this team over the top, just as he was during his early days in Seattle. Adding Wilson would give a nameless franchise an identity.

2. Indianapolis Colts

The Indianapolis Colts have been searching for a true franchise QB since Andrew Luck's unexpected retirement. Wilson would certainly fit the bill. In terms of roster talent, the Colts are a legit, ready-made contender that's just a QB away from being elite. GM Chris Ballard has done an excellent job assembling without breaking the bank. The Colts would have no trouble absorbing Wilson's deal, and they should be able to cobble together an offer that Seattle would have to at least consider. Plus, sending him to Indianapolis would get him out of the NFC, which would be a huge plus for Seattle if things ever actually became unsalvageable with its franchise QB.

1. Denver Broncos

Like Indianapolis, the Denver Broncos have been searching for a true, no-doubt franchise QB ever since Peyton Manning hung up his cleats. Denver has all its picks going forward and can create a significant amount of cap space by getting rid of a few vets, so it's not inconceivable to think the Broncos could put together an enticing package for Wilson. Were they to land him, he would immediately make this unit a top-five offense. Denver has some nice pieces along the O-Line to go with one of the most talented young skill-position groups in the league. And it was just under a decade ago when Denver landed Manning, who took his game to new heights in Mile High during the second chapter of his storied career.
