The Seattle Seahawks could pull off a major trade in the offseason.
While Seahawks fans would prefer the franchise not go this route, it is still a realistic possibility that both Seattle and Russell Wilson head in different directions. Considering Wilson still has two years left on his deal and contains a no-trade clause in his contract, the Seahawks would have to find a suitable trader partner that the veteran QB approves of.
According to a column on creating elite quarterback-wide receiver duos from Bleacher Report’s Michelle Bruton, a possible blockbuster trade proposal sees Wilson traded to the NFC rival Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for rising young quarterback Jalen Hurts and two 2022 first-round draft picks.
“But in December, (Adam) Schefter told 97.5 The Fanatic that he believed Wilson would waive his no-trade clause for the Philadelphia Eagles as well,” says Bruton.
“Second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts played well enough to guide the Eagles to the playoffs, but his limitations were on full display in their blowout Wild Card Round loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. No. 10 overall pick DeVonta Smith didn’t get his first target until late in that game.
Despite Hurts’ up-and-down play this season, Smith finished with an Eagles rookie record 916 receiving yards and five touchdowns.
