Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has directly expressed frustration about the state of the team coming out of last season’s disappointing early playoff exit.

Wilson hasn’t said much directly in the weeks since expressing frustration with getting hit and saying he believed he should have input on team decisions. It’s fueled the notion of ongoing discontent between Wilson and the franchise.

However, Wilson has recently expressed excitement over some of the moves the team has made through his Twitter account.

Most recently, Wilson was enthused by the new Thursday night that the team was bringing Carlos Dunlap back to the team on a two-year deal.

LETS GOOO!!! @Carlos_Dunlap Back! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ,” Wilson wrote.

Wilson has sent similar messages about the re-signings of Benson Mayowa and Chris Carson, addition of Kerry Hyder, and the contract extension for Poona Ford.

Wilson hasn’t addressed every move made by the team this offseason. He hasn’t commented on the trade to acquire Gabe Jackson from the Las Vegas Raiders, the re-signing of Ethan Pocic at center, the addition of Ahkello Witherspoon at cornerback or the signing of Gerald Everett.

Nevertheless, Wilson’s excitement about some of the moves the team has made indicates he’s looking forward to playing with the group again this year. Given the trade speculation about Wilson possibly wanting out of Seattle, it appears as though he’s anticipating to play for the Seahawks again in 2021.

Does that mean that Wilson’s issues with the team have been fully resolved? Not necessarily. Whether he’s truly content will probably depend on just how good the team ends up performing next season. He at least seems happy about some of the moves the team has made to help them in that quest.

  1. He should be excited. With Chris Carson playing, Seattle is winning games about 75% of the time. Without Chris Carson, the winning percentage drops below 50%.

  2. That’s what you do…. when you realize the power play you were
    attempting, was an abject failure.

  3. Everything is going to be fine. The new offensive coordinator has a lot of great experience, but not much calling plays. That will actually be good for the relationship because Russell will have more input. The play calling was the most glaring problem in Seattle. Everything else was fine. I think they fixed that.

  4. He says that now but wait until after he has a poor game. Then he’ll be blaming everyone else just like normal.

  5. After the commotion of this offseason, no one should be too surprised if Seattle takes a quarterback in the draft.

    With which draft choice??

  7. I think you are going to see a much more up-tempo offense and because of that I think you’re going to see Wilson calling a lot of plays himself. Whether by reading the defense and making checkdowns or by flat out “hurry-up-offense” type of stuff. When a team goes up tempo they have to rely a LOT more on their QB to make calls and Wilson’s proved he is very capable of that.

  8. Watching Rams offense vs Hawks was sadly pro to high school.

    Rams played a 2020 offense with multiple possibilities off of similar looks. Hawks were old school predictable.

    When playing Rams Dline and LBs had to wait an instant to see which way the play was going. Hawks was handoff or play action. Either essentially was the same for Dline.

    If the new OC brings a modern offense to the Hawks the Oline will magically improve, Russ will be happy and Hawks will win the west.
