Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson went on a very public media circuit this offseason to voice his frustrations with the team. While he never requested a trade, observers began to speculate on if things were headed that direction.
While Wilson's contract makes any deal hard to pull off, the Seahawks' reported starting price for any trade talks involving their QB has been revealed.
Seattle's starting price on a Wilson trade is three first-round picks, which is a bounty on its own, but the Seahawks will likely require even more. It'll take three firsts just to get the team's attention, but to give any deal a second thought, interested teams will need to up their offer.
Obviously, there's little reason for Seattle to want to trade Wilson away. He just put up 4,212 yards and 40 passing TDs in 2020, earning serious MVP consideration in the first half of the season in particular.
If the Seahawks can put the right pieces around him, they should get back to contending, and winning makes everybody happy. It's concerning that there's constant noise surrounding a Wilson trade, but Seattle can quiet that with the right moves this offseason.
