Warren Moon Still Believes Seahawks Will Split With Russell Wilson

Warren Moon isn't considered an NFL insider, but he sounds like he has some inside information regarding Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks.

"I think it's kind of headed, unfortunately, in the same direction ," Moon said on the "Huddle & Flow podcast" with Jim Trotter and Steve Wyche, via NFL.com

In other words, Moon suspects Wilson and the Seahawks won't be together much longer -- just as a lot of recent rumors suggest.

"I think right now it's almost like a marriage that's started to just have squabbles," Moon said. "And they're squabbling about certain little issues -- whether it's pass protection, whether it's talent. There's all these little squabbles going on right now." 

Moon is a former outstanding QB himself. So he does understand how the business side of football works. And with Wilson and the Seahawks, it may not be personal. Just business.

That said, Moon seems to think Wilson will last another season with Seattle. But no more.

"I think because of Russell's contract situation, there's not a whole lot the Seahawks can do as far as moving him somewhere else, even if they wanted to," Moon said. "So, I think he's definitely there this year unless they just want to take a hit and not become a really good football team for a year or so.

"But I think that the marriage is not going to end very well going down the road. I think this squabble is going to turn into more of a separation and then a divorce at some point. And that usually happens with most players anyway.
