Seattle Seahawks' quarterback Russell Wilson is reportedly unhappy with how much he is getting hit and it has sparked trade rumors in the NFL. Multiple teams have inquired about the price it would take to acquire the veteran signal caller and odds have now been posted as to where he will end up.
If he gets traded, a surprising team leads the way as to where Wilson will take his next NFL snap, according to future player future odds posted on FanDuel Sportsbook in Colorado. (Note: all bets will be void if he remains on the Seahawks' roster when the 2021 NFL season kicks off, these are odds for if Wilson is traded.)
Russell Wilson Trade Destination Odds
The leader when it comes to these odds are the Las Vegas Raiders sitting at +250. This is an intriguing spot given the Raiders have not been linked to either of the two quarterbacks available for trade in Deshaun Watson or Carson Wentz. Starter Derek Carr is coming off of a season in which he threw for 4,103 yards and 27 touchdowns, but the team finished just 8-8.
Among other top teams include the Dallas Cowboys (+340), Denver Broncos (+430), Chicago Bears (+500) and Indianapolis Colts (+500). As can be seen, every team featured is dealing with a quarterback problem in one way or another.
Acquiring Russell Wilson would in turn solve all of those problems as he is a player you can trust to lead your team for many years to come. He was originally drafted by the Seahawks in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft and has led them to a Super Bowl Championship and a 98-45-1 record as the team's starting quarterback.
He has also made the Pro Bowl seven times and was recently named the 2020 Walter Peyton NFL Man of the Year. In the end, trading for Wilson would alter the future for any NFL franchise and makes this a storyline worth keeping up with throughout the offseason.
