Seahawks' Russell Wilson open to Cowboys, Saints, Raiders, Bears

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson's agent tells ESPN's Adam Schefter that Wilson would be willing to waive his no-trade clause for the Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, Las Vegas Raiders, or Chicago Bears.

What It Means:

Wilson has not requested a trade but things certainly seem to be heading in that direction. The veteran quarterback uncharacteristically expressed frustration earlier this season over "getting hit too much" and also said he would like more say in personnel decisions. There are also reports that Wilson's discontent runs beyond what he has revealed publicly, including wanting the offense to go through him more. Wilson turned 32 at the end of November and is under contract until 2024.

Russ ranked 19th in Passing Net Expected Points per dropback last season among the 35 quarterbacks with at least 250 dropbacks. He has been sacked 394 times in 144 regular-season games, including 47 in 2020. According to ESPN Stats & Information, that's the most in a player's first nine seasons since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.
