Russell Wilson: Seattle’s the place where I’m at right now and I love it

While Green Bay’s Aaron Rogers is assumed to be the first quarterback domino to fall in this year’s offseason, there’s another Super Bowl-winning quarterback in the NFC who might be changing addresses.

Things seemed like they’ve calmed down between quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seahawks. But there’s still a chance he could be moved if they fall apart again.

In a Tuesday interview on the TODAY Show, Wilson was asked by Craig Melvin — who identified himself as a Washington fan — if Wilson would ever consider playing on the East Coast. Wilson’s answer likely wasn’t all that satisfactory for Commanders fans.

“I love the East Coast, but I think the West Coast is better for me right now,” Wilson said, via JP Finlay of NBCSportsWashington.com. “I’ve got my whole family over here. I’m from Richmond, I know what you mean. I’ve got people hitting me up every day — all my friends and all that from the East Coast. But Seattle’s the place where I’m at right now and I love it and it’s great.”

Wilson missed three games with a finger injury in 2021 but compiled a 6-8 record in the games he played. Seattle finished with a losing record for the first time since Wilson took over as the team’s QB1 back in 2012.

Wilson was a Pro Bowler, having completed 65 percent of his passes for 3,113 yards with 25 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also rushed for 183 yards and a pair of TDs.

  1. Yep. Imagine thinking he’d rather go play for the Giants or the Commanders.

  2. It’ll take a lot of draft capital to pry Wilson away from the Hawks. Regardless of whatever the delusional Eagles sportswriters or other fanbases might think from the various speculation and trade rumor articles out there. So unless another team comes knocking with a ridiculous offer that’s too good to pass up, Wilson will ride out at least this year with the Seahawks. Who knows what the future might hold, but I don’t see him going anywhere any time soon.

  3. Why does this guy always couch his responses. Just say I want to retire with the Seahawks and be done with it. No one is going to blame him if he gets traded or leaves later.

  4. Wish he would quit talking. Feels like he’s trying to take over for Big Ben

  5. I’d wager a months salary that all these PFT commenters would love to have RW as their starting QB.
