NFL fans were promised a crazy offseason, and it appears that will happen. Although it’s highly unlikely he’s on the move in the coming months, Russell Wilson is reportedly frustrated with the Seattle Seahawks.
Wilson has been the heart and soul for the Seahawks over the past several years. This season, he carried the offense with 4,212 passing yards and 40 touchdowns.
Seattle has provided Wilson with an elite receiving duo of DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, but its inability to put together a competent offensive line has irritated its franchise quarterback’s camp. Jason La Canfora has the latest on this rift.
“I’m hearing Russell Wilson’s camp has grown increasingly frustrated by the Seahawks inability to protect the 8 time Pro Bowler,” La Canfora tweeted on Monday night. “He has been sacked 394 times in 9 seasons. This situation warrants serious monitoring.”

Wilson’s camp may have put this message out there to force Seattle’s hand when it comes to prioritizing offensive linemen in the draft. However, Seattle doesn’t have its first-round pick this year due to the Jamal Adams trade.
With three years remaining on his deal with the Seahawks, it’s unlikely Wilson suits up for another franchise in the near future. Besides, the front office would be foolish to trade away its best player.
The Seahawks are a playoff-caliber team with the way its current roster is constructed, but it would be nice to see Wilson actually have a clean pocket to throw in.
