It has been a tense couple of months for the Seattle Seahawks and their fans when it comes to the long-term future of quarterback Russell Wilson.
Last season, Wilson played well for the Hawks, but they were knocked out of the postseason by fellow NFC West rival Los Angeles Rams after just one game.
Wilson and the Hawks struggled, and suddenly rumors began to pop up that Wilson wanted out, that he wasn’t happy with the offense and that there was chatter that the Chicago Bears might have interest.
It seems now a few months later that things have finally slowed down, and that Wilson and the team are finally on the same page.
RealGMWiretap reports that the sides are doing just find, and that Wilson “fully understands” his place in the organization. It just may not be quite as profound as that of a Patrick Mahomes or Tom Brady.
One thing about Wilson is that his play will keep getting him raises, as last season was another massive year, throwing for 40 touchdowns and 13 picks.
The report says three things are going to look slightly different in 2021 for Seattle.
“1.) A new offensive philosophy that would maximize him as a player, 2.) A real, high-end, ready-to-play addition to the offensive line, and 3.) Communication on the direction of the team from Pete Carroll and (general manager) John Schneider.”
If that all makes Wilson happy, then go for it.
