  Seahawks | SEA not sold on Russell Wilson?    Tue Jul 13, 11:24 AM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and the team appear to have a tolerable relationship for now, but there's a sense the team isn't sold on him long term, in the opinion of NFL insider Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Things were building up with Wilson and the Seahawks, kind of like what we're seeing with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers...then...things were smoothed over and both sides were saying the right things. They might just be giving Wilson one more year to start before deciding to move on. It sounds ridiculous because Wilson is a superstar but here we are. Let's see what he can do in 2021 and what Seattle does with him in 2022.

  Seahawks | No trade request from Russell Wilson    Thu Jun 10, 06:20 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he did not ask for a trade this offseason and is ready to win with the Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Either way, Wilson got what he wanted. The Seahawks added a top-end offensive lineman (Gabe Jackson), a passing game coordinator to run the offense (Shane Waldron), and wide receiver in the second round (D'Wayne Eskridge).

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson not at workouts    Thu May 27, 05:45 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is not did not participate in the workouts this week but has been working out with some of his teammates in San Diego, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: Things are all good with Wilson and he's locked in for 2021. These workouts are voluntary, so not a big deal if Wilson is not there. He'll be at any mandatory workout in the future and seems to be happy with the changes/additions the Seahawks have made this offseason for him to thrive.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson committed for '21    Tue May 25, 12:00 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has reached an understanding with the team and is committed to the team for 2021. One source put it, 'It's basically I'm here now, and I'm going to make it the best it can be.'

Footballguys view: Wilson is signed through the 2023 season but there have been rumblings about him perhaps playing somewhere else. Others have reported this is his final contract with Seattle, which isn't difficult to deduce. Either way, Wilson is committed for the 2021 season and the team's offense may flow through him and his receiving weapons more than ever this year. Wilson has a current ADP of QB8 (6.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson in Seattle for good?    Tue Apr 6, 04:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson reportedly gave DE Carlos Dunlap his assurance he isn't going anywhere else in 2021 before the latter re-signed with the Seahawks last month.

Footballguys view: Rumblings about Wilson being on the trade block have been going for a couple of months. There's even a list of four teams where Wilson would want to play according to reports. This all might be a year too early...or complete hogwash. The fact of the matter is that Wilson is likely to play with the Seahawks in 2021. After that? Only time will tell.

Footballguys view: Wilson has great touch on deep passes and that allows him to thrive on such throws. He does a good job of leading his receivers and will keep plays alive with his feet while keeping his eyes downfield.

  Seahawks | Inquiries accepted on Russell Wilson    Thu Mar 4, 01:37 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is not being 'shopped,' according to a source Thursday, March 4, but calls from other teams interested in trading for Wilson have been answered.

Footballguys view: He's not being shopped but he's being shopped. Teams will call about Wilson, because it's a chance to get a superstar quarterback. Wilson doesn't want to leave Seattle, but if he's moved then he would consider teams like the Bears, Saints, Raiders and Cowboys.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson stormed out of meeting    Mon Mar 1, 10:14 AM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson stormed out of a meeting before a Thursday night game against the Arizona Cardinals because he felt his ideas on how to fix the offense were being rebuffed, according to a report by The Athletic's Michael-Shawn Dugar, Mike Sando and Jayson Jenks.

Footballguys view: Wilson has attempted to add his influence to the offense and has felt shut out by coaches at times. This is why he has a list of four teams he may want to be traded to - even though he doesn't want to leave Seattle. Wilson has a no-trade clause in his contract, so he holds all the cards if a deal is to be done.

  Saints | Russell Wilson linked to Saints?    Mon Mar 1, 10:13 AM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton hit it off at the Pro Bowl three years ago, according to MMQB's Peter King.

Footballguys view: The Saints are on Wilson's list of desired destinations if he's traded. If they can make a deal happen, it would be great to go from Drew Brees to Wilson. Brees hasn't yet retired, so that's the first domino that would have to fall if the Saints can truly get in on this deal.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants to stay    Thu Feb 25, 01:53 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has not demanded a trade, his agent Mark Rodgers told ESPN on Thursday, Feb. 25. Wilson told the Seahawks he wants to remain with the team, but if a trade were to be considered, the only teams he would consider are the Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, Las Vegas Raiders or New Orleans Saints, according to Rodgers.

Footballguys view: Wilson has a no-trade clause in his contract, so he has the control here. There has been rumblings of this all offseason long, and now the rumblings are louder. We'll see if Seattle can work things out or if Wilson is going to be dealt. It's an interesting list of potential teams for him, and those teams should be trying to do whatever they can in order to see if a deal can get done. Things are just getting interesting...stay tuned.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson cool under fire    Tue Feb 23, 11:39 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has thrown for a league-high 79 touchdowns while under pressure since entering the league in 2012 - 12 more than any other player over that span - according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Wilson is cool under fire, always has been and always will be. The problem is that he's under fire too much. The team needs to put a better offensive line in front of him so he has better protection and isn't sacked as much in 2021 and beyond.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants better protection    Tue Feb 9, 03:29 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he hopes to receive better pass protection next season and will also work on trying to avoid hits.

Footballguys view: Wilson is rattling his saber here. Some think that means Wilson wants a trade, but it likely just means that he wants better protection...and for good reason. "I've been sacked almost 400 times," Wilson said. "So we've got to get better. I've got to find ways to get better too."

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson receives trade interest    Sun Feb 7, 03:30 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has been a trade target for a few teams, but the Seahawks have no intention of trading Wilson.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson looking to reduce turnovers    Sun Feb 7, 03:08 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he hopes he will be able to cut down on his turnovers next season. He said he has been talking with offensive coordinator Shane Waldron about how to be more aggressive on offense.

Footballguys view: The 13 interceptions that Wilson threw in 2020 were the most in his career. In fact, in the two previous seasons (2018, 2019) he only threw 12 interceptions combined. We'll see how he meshes in the new offense under Waldron.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson in on OC talks    Sat Jan 23, 11:59 AM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he has been involved in talks for candidates to fill the offensive coordinator opening. 'I think it's vital, it's critical, super significant, obviously, that I'm a part of that process,' Wilson said. 'Coach and I have definitely been talking about that, (general manager John Schneider) too as well. We've had some ... great dialogue about the thought process of who we want, the leader ... the innovator, all that kind of different stuff that you want. I think that's the super critical thing, obviously at this point in my career because you spend every day with that person.'

Footballguys view: That's what smart teams do...they include their superstar quarterback in the process. Wilson should be involved in who they hire for offensive coordinator. The team can use balance to attack defenses, but the next system needs to be as Wilson-friendly as possible.

WR DK Metcalf was limited to 21 yards on three receptions, with TE Will Dissly leading the tight ends with 20 receiving yards.

Footballguys view: Seattle ended up stuck in the third seed no matter what happened in this game, but it was still positive to end on a winning note. They'll face the Rams, who have been a tough divisional matchup for them since Sean McVay took over.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 18-of-27 passes for 121 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 15 game against the Washington Football Team and he ran for 52 yards.

Footballguys view: This was an ugly day for the Seahawks passing game, which couldn't get anything going downfield. If not for Wilson's rushing contributions, he would have been the worst quarterback play of the day. The Seahawks are content to go conservative on offense with a healthy backfield and improving defense, so Wilson will be a dicey play against the Rams next week if you survived this dud.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 23 of his 28 passes for 197 yards and two scores against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, Nov. 19. He also ran 10 times for 42 yards.

Footballguys view: Wilson was much safer with the ball this week than he was in losses the last two weeks, and he could have had another touchdown if DK Metcalf hadn't dropped the ball in the end zone late in the first half. The return of a solid running game and an improved defense could lower Wilson's ceiling going forward, but he's still a solid QB1 heading into a matchup with Philadelphia.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants to be more aggressive    Thu Aug 13, 05:47 PM

Seattle Seahawks Russell Wilson said Thursday, Aug. 13, he'd like to see the offense be more aggressive in 2020. 'Let's treat every quarter like the fourth quarter,' Wilson said.

Footballguys view: Wilson has been lobbying during the offseason to be a more central part of the offense in the first three quarters instead of only when the team needs him in the fourth quarter. If his pass attempts can go up significantly for the second straight year, he could move into the tier occupied by only Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson at the top of drafts.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson efficient in 2019    Wed Jul 15, 09:45 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson's 6.2 touchdown-to-interception ratio in 2019 was the best among quarterbacks who finished in the top 10 in passing yardage, and he was the only quarterback to rank in the top five in QBR on throws inside and outside the pocket.

Footballguys view: Wilson did this while having his attempts jump by almost 100. He remains underrated in league and fantasy circles and could easily be the #3 fantasy quarterback this year. Wilson is worth a pick in the top 5-6 quarterbacks off of the board.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson led the league in 2019 with 40 big-time throws (Pro Football Focus' highest-graded throws on precise downfield passes).

Footballguys view: Wilson should rank high on the big-time throw list in 2020 as well. It's his touch when throwing down the field coupled with the fact that he does such a great job of extending plays. There are many reasons why Wilson is one of the best in the game and this piece of advanced data is just another point.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for 1,545 yards, 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions on play-action passes during the 2019 regular season and postseason.

Footballguys view: Wilson also completed 71.3 percent of play-action passes in 2019. The Seahawks could use more passing on first down and otherwise more offense running through Wilson this year. He is often available outside of the top five quarterback, but he could finish in the top three if pass attempts go up for the second straight year.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson tops in improvisation    Sat Jun 13, 02:06 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson led all quarterbacks with a 94.6 Pro Football Focus grade on passing plays lasting longer than 3 seconds in 2019.

Footballguys view: Wilson can make things happen. He always has done a good job of breaking the pocket but keeping his eyes downfield for a throw. If nothing's there, then Wilson can use his legs to pick up first downs. That dual-threat ability makes him one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the league.

  Seahawks | Russell Wilson exceptional downfield    Sun May 24, 04:19 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was accurate on 17 of his 26 passes (65.4 percent) that traveled 31 or more yards downfield and five of his six passes that traveled at least 41 yards (83.3 percent) in 2019, making him the most accurate passer in the league on such throws. Wilson also finished second in passes that traveled at least 35 yards in the air (60 percent).

Footballguys view: Calling Wilson accurate on deep passes is selling him short. It's not about getting the ball on target but it's also about pass placement, throwing with anticipation and leading his receiver to maximize yards after the catch. Wilson does all that and it's what helps him stand out as a passer at the pro level.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 23 of his 30 pass attempts for 450 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions on seven-step drops in 2019. Those marks allowed him to post a league-best 157.6 passer rating on seven-step drops.

Footballguys view: Wilson is deadly on such drops because his athleticism can buy him more time if he needs too. A seven-step drop takes time to develop as a quarterback looks for his man downfield. Wilson can buy himself more time with his legs if something is not open when he gets to the end of his drop.

Footballguys view: This is one of the reasons why the Seahawks went out and added multiple players to their offensive line this offseason. Adding guys like B.J. Finney, Brandon Shell, Cedric Ogbuehi and Chance Warmack should help the Seahawks have a better offensive line.

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson expressed a desire for the offense to utilize more of an up-tempo attack in 2020 during an interview with Pro Football Talk Live last week.'I mean we've always been really good at two-minute (offense),' Wilson said. 'We've always been really good in those end of the half, those not always hurry-up situations, but those up-tempo situations (and) moments. And the reality is this: I think the defense gets tired, first thing. And I think the second thing is that, you know, I really know kind of what I want to get after them, how we want to get after them, especially in those moments. And guys just make plays in those moments. I think the freedom of just going after it and just scoring as many points, you know?'

  Seahawks | Seattle's season ends despite late rally    Sun Jan 12, 10:11 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 21-of-31 passes for 277 yards and a touchdown as the team fell behind by 18 points twice but made a late charge before falling short 28-23 in Sunday's NFC Divisional Round playoff game. Wilson led the team in rushing with 64 yards, while RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 26 yards and two scores on 12 attempts. WR Tyler Lockett was highly efficient, turning his 10 targets into nine catches for 136 yards and a touchdown. WR DK Metcalf was held somewhat in check after setting a playoff record for most receiving yards by a rookie one week ago, finishing with four receptions for 59 yards. TE Jacob Hollister hauled in five catches for 47 yards. RB Travis Homer chipped in 27 more yards through the air to go along with his 13 rushing yards. CB Tre Flowers, LB K.J. Wright and DE Jadeveon Clowney paced Seattle with seven tackles apiece. LB Shaquem Griffin tallied one of Seattle's two sacks, while Wright and Clowney combined on the other.

Footballguys view: Wilson was once again outstanding in a playoff loss. If the Seahawks had any kind of effective running game, they might have been okay in this one. Their defense has room to improve and the Seahawks will still be in the top of the NFC picture next year.
