Russell Wilson: Hope and goal is to be back and keep winning

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson‘s future in Seattle was a storyline last offseason and there’s been plenty of chatter about whether he could be traded to another team could be in the cards this year.

Wilson, who has a no-trade clause in his contract, said near the end of the regular season that his “goal is to win more Super Bowls” and that he plans to win them with the Seahawks. He was singing the same tune during a Friday appearance with Chris Russo on Mad Dog Sports Radio.

“I’ve been fortunate to be able to play 10 amazing years in Seattle,” Wilson said. “My hope and goal is to be back there and keep winning there. That’s the vision, that’s the goal. That’s always been it, never been anything different.”

Hopes, goals, and plans don’t always come to fruition and they can change, so further discussion about where he’ll be playing next season probably won’t be stifled as a result of that answer. The longer Wilson remains in Seattle, though, the better the chances that he’ll be the Seahawks’ quarterback for an 11th season.

  1. Another guy who likes to hear himself talk. I wonder when he holds out for a contract like Mahomes. His salary hampers their ability to get free agents and that team has a lot of holes to fill. He has two good WRs but he still tucks and run way too often. He could probably make the right team better and his salary–if traded–is reasonable at $51M over the next two years. OF course any trade he would probably want a new contract which may be a deterrent to any would-be suitors.

  2. While I would love to see Russ Cook in Black and Gold, now that Sean Payton has stepped down, the chances that happens are significantly diminished.

    He played like crap at the end of last year. What happened?

    I’m not a fan of the Seahawks or Wilson. That said, he tore up a finger on his throwing hand, had surgery, and rehabbed hard enough to return several weeks earlier than initially expected.
    Off the top of my head I’d say Wilson’s finger probably didn’t have time to regain full sensation, messing up his grip and his ability to throw with any great strength or accuracy. He also appeared to have put on a couple of pounds while he was out, which affected his ability to escape any kind of pass rush.
    I could be wrong.

  4. Amen! Love ya wilson! Been a fan since watching the 83 conference game loss against the raiders which was my first betting loss…..to my dad 10 bucks was alot back then. I remember the 1992 seahawks but for Cortez Kennedy rip it would have been a waste of a year! Say it loud and proud go hawks and you might actually get a FA to come to the PNW! Get your chit in one sock and let’s go beat those f’ing rams!!!!

  5. He’s got a no-trade clause and he’s under contract in Seattle in 2022. So there’s no “hoping” needed. If he wants to stay in Seattle this year, it’s done. The fact that he keeps qualifying this suggests he would really rather be somewhere else, but for whatever reason isn’t willing to to just say so directly.

  6. Owners are so desperate for “the guy” they can’t help themselves. The position itself is way overpaid and there are literally dozens of other guys that a team needs to contribute, and the way the CBA works now, with owners uncontrollable compulsions, teams have to hit all the way through the draft…and they aren’t. Not to mention the dumpster fire, train wreck, $h!t show that’s currently going on. I guess as long as the networks keep paying the money and the NFL ticket keeps flowing, the status quo will keep rolling along.

  7. It’s his hope and goal, he is under contract and has a no trade clause, it is 100% his decision, no one can force him out of Seattle but he wants to play it like he never wanted to leave and the Seahawks forced him out

  8. They’re the fourth best team in that division. It’s going to take some doing. He can elevate a team if he’s healthy but they’ve got holes and aren’t exactly swimming in assets.

  9. Wilson is under contract with the Seahawks for the next 2 years. The only way he can be traded is if the Seattle brass decide to trade him. Wilson has no power to initiate a trade on his own so if he wants out he’s going to have to force it. I don’t think Wilson would try to do that and I can’t imagine Pete Carroll wanting to start over with a rebuild at his age. Wilson is staying in Seattle.

  10. Of course he says that he wants to be back with the Seahawks. What else is he going to say? Whether that will happen or not…..we’ll see.

  11. I think Wilson will be back in SEA next season, I have a very hard time believing SEA will trade Wilson to anywhere else unless they were able to land say a 1st/3rd this year and a 1st next year though that’s a price I dont think anyone will want to pay for RW3. Even with Wilson though given the brutal division they’re in I don’t see them being very good next year given all of the holes on SEA’s roster especially defensively not to mention a bunch of offensive holes as well. SEA has the worst roster in the NFC-W and making matters worse SEA doesn’t have the premium draft picks to build up their roster given the fact they don’t even have a 1st round pick thanks to the Jamal Adams (who hasn’t lived up to the price SEA paid for him, they wayyy over paid) trade. And SEA desperately could of used that pick given it is THE 10TH OVERALL PICK in this springs NFL Draft. SEA’s back is up against the wall this off-season, GM John Schneider desperately needs to hit on his picks this off-season to build up that roster but given how bad he’s been making picks the last 5 years or so I dont have much faith in his ability to knock it out of the park in this years draft which he needs to do.

    Wilson wouldn’t try to force his way out??? Uhh Yes he would , he let SEA know last year he would do just that if SEA didn’t start listening to him and some of his demands. Wilson had his agent release a list of teams he would be interested in playing for just last year. If SEA doesn’t start making some of the improvements Wilson wants to the roster and coaching staff RW3 absolutely could decide to force a trade out of SEA.
