Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have had a historic run together, including the city’s first Super Bowl win in 2013. Since knocking Wilson out in round 3 of the 2012 draft, he’s become the franchise QB. franchise as well as the greatest tennis player to ever play the position in Seattle.

While Wilson’s 2021 season was ended by a hand injury early on, he still showed glimpses of the level of play for which he is known. In the 2019 and 2020 seasons, Wilson made 71 touchdowns and just 18 interceptions. With the Legion of Boom long gone, Wilson is largely solely responsible for the Seahawks remaining the winning force in NFC.

While they certainly have star talent like DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Jamal Adams, many see them as a team that can only go as far as Russell Wilson can take them. That is evidenced by a poor performance in the 2021 season while Wilson is sidelined with an arm injury.

Ian Rapoport certainly believes the Seahawks think so too as he recently offered up a reason why Wilson isn’t leaving Seattle.

Appears on ‘The Pat McAfee Show’ Ian Rapoport is quoted saying “I wonder if Russell Wilson saw what happened to Kyler Murray, saw the news cycle, saw everyone wondering. If you’re a team that might want a quarterback and then you see Russell Wilson take things off Instagram, you start calling. It’s a way to trigger a connection. I don’t know what his goal is but I would imagine it would end the conversation. “

Rapoport added “I went back to the place where I was always with him and Seattle. Until Seattle has a better option to compete with next year, I don’t see them trading him. I don’t know who their quarterback would become if they traded Russell Wilson and I don’t know how it could be an upgrade.”

Rapoport makes a very good point here. Regardless of whether Russell Wilson wanted to play in Seattle, the Seahawks had to accept his trade-off. They will ask for an extremely high price for him because they are completely aware of his talent.

Another point to why Wilson likely isn’t going anywhere this season, he’s shown an interest in staying in Seattle for a long time and wants to win more Super Bowls with the Seahawks. Now, wanting to win more Super Bowls could be the reason he’s leaving, if Seattle can’t provide him with a competitive roster each year.

Given the limited space they have this year and the pieces that clearly need to be filled, chances are the Seahawks will have to pay a big day’s pay to return to the Super Bowl. If in the next few seasons they can win another ring, that will certainly keep Wilson in Seattle throughout his career.
