Seahawks Not Happy with Russell Wilson Taking Issues Public

Russell Wilson

The Seattle Seahawks aren’t too thrilled with superstar quarterback Russell Wilson going public with his issues regarding the team as trade rumors swirl regarding the veteran signal caller, according to sources via Dan Patrick (h/t Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk).

Wilson, 32, appeared on the Dan Patrick Show earlier this week and expressed his frustration with the franchise’s inability to protect him. Wilson has been sacked close to 400m times over his career.

“I’ve definitely been hit. I’ve been sacked almost 400 times. We got to get better,” Wilson said. “I got to find ways to get better, too. Just continue to try and find that. As we continue to go along the process and I think about my career wand what I want to be able to do, it always starts up front, offensively and defensively.”

While it remains extremely unlikely that the Seahawks end up making Russell available in trade, it’s still going to be an interesting storyline to follow this offseason.
