Russell Wilson: My goal is to win more Super Bowls and plan is to win them in Seattle

Russell Wilson‘s future already has become a hot topic, and he has done nothing to quiet the talk.

Only last week, before the Seahawks’ final home game, the quarterback said, “I hope it’s not my last game (in Seattle). But at the same time, I know it won’t be my last game in the NFL.”

A few days after that came a report of a “league-wide feeling” that Wilson and coach Pete Carroll will not be together again next season.

So Wilson was asked specifically Thursday why he hasn’t closed on the door on talk of his departure after this season.

“My goal is to win more Super Bowls, and my plan is to win them here,” Wilson said. “It’s that simple. There’s nothing really else other than that.”

Wilson has a no-trade clause. His agent, Mark Rodgers, said last year, after Wilson publicly aired his grievances, that the quarterback wanted to remain in Seattle but would waive his no-trade clause for the Raiders, Bears, Cowboys or Saints.

“I think first of all when it comes to a no-trade clause in sports, the main reason is so teams can’t trade somebody to anywhere,” Wilson said Thursday. “That’s the No. 1 reason, right, because in sports you could wake up the next morning, and you’re gone somewhere else.”

Wilson ended his Thursday availability by reiterating he wants to stay in Seattle.

“We’ve always thought I would be here,” Wilson said. “That’s been always my goal — to win multiple Super Bowls, and my plan is to be here and do that. You take every day and you just enjoy the moment.”

The Seahawks will have their first losing season with Wilson as their quarterback, and it marks only the second time in the past 10 seasons Seattle has not finished with double-digit wins.

Wilson, 33, has completed 65.2 percent of his passes for 2,875 yards with 22 touchdowns and five interceptions in 13 games.

  1. You better look in that playbook of yours Wilson because with that roster you ain’t winning anything for years as that team needs rebuilt from the OL, RBs, DL, EDGE, Bobby Wagner is entering his twilight years, your cornerback room can’t cover their shadows. And this dude is talking about not just winning the super bowl but MULTIPLE when the roster is years away from true contention w/ a 70YR old coach, an uncreative lost OC who runs a very bland offense a 5YR old could figure out and the worst DC in the league? Yeah , I don’t see that happening anytime soon. Wilson’s biggest blessing in disguise would be getting traded to a better situation elsewhere.

  2. People generally lose sight of how quickly good organizations rebound from down seasons. Ask the 49’ers fans who seem to be in a delusional place about Seattle’s future. Jim Tomsula to Kyle Shanahan to SB. Pete is not going anywhere. Neither is Russ.

  3. I love how Russell Wilson and Bill Belichick handle the media. Two completely different styles, but I get a kick out of both. Everyone’s just trying to do their job.

  4. He’s going downhill. Very few can do it as long as Brady and Rogers. He’s always got that sweet piece, though.

  5. Better get a new GM. You know , someone who doesn’t think it a good idea to trade 2 first round picks and a third round pick for a box safety

  6. This guy must got one too many concussions in his time playing! He says some off the wall hard to believe statements! His ego is bigger than his shoulder pads!

  7. Things change quickly in the NFL. I’m guessing when the 1st game was played you all saw Jacksonville imploding, Gruden being fired mid season, the WFT not being competitive, the Dallas D being a force, the Dolphins winning 7 straight games and so on. Maybe, just maybe, no one is as smart as they think they are and that its fairly unpredictable.

  8. Russell Wilson…started visiting children in Seattle Children’s Hospital in 2012…at the time they didn’t know who he was…they do now…2013 Super Bowl Winning Quarterback, 2020 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year…currently has over 36,000 passing yards and 289 touchdown passes…over 4,600 rushing yards along with 22 rushing touchdowns….

  9. Dudes finger exploded when Aaron Donald hit him. Resign Penny, Green, Diggs, Reed, Pocic, Brown (38 is the new 30). Curhan has good feedback. Carroll and Wilson make football inspiring.

  10. If only press conferences, and pronouncements equaled trophies he’d be there. Wilson sounds equally a PR official to being a QB at this point. When I think Russel Wilson I think seated at a table, press Corp waiting with questions, Seattle Media affiliations and sponsors splattered across a background. I don’t think a guy in a helmet playing.

  11. Better get a new GM. You know , someone who doesn’t think it a good idea to trade 2 first round picks and a third round pick for a box safety

    That was Pete. He has final say on personnel.

    Schneider is from the Ron Wolf school. He may have spent the picks to get Adams, he never would have doubled down on a mistake with that insane contract.

  12. Don’t worry Russell – we know what you need deep down. Welcome to New Orleans.

  13. Wilson is still good, maybe not top 10 any more, but still good enough to win with. Of course that depends upon the team around him. . . . .

    Retooling around Russ will be hard without draft picks. Or cap room

    ======================

    The Seahawks have plenty of cap space.

  15. It’s easier to win Super Bowls when you don’t throw INTs on the one yard line.

    Biggest mistake in NFL history.

  16. Wilson is still good, maybe not top 10 any more, but still good enough to win with. Of course that depends upon the team around him. . . . .

    No denying he had a down year… but are there really 10 better QBs?
