Russell Wilson offers interesting quote about Seahawks future
As trade speculation continues around Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, he seems to be going out of his way to try to quiet it down.
That happened again on Thursday, when Wilson made an interesting unsolicited comment during his media availability. Wilson said he hoped Sunday’s game against Detroit would not be his final home game in Seattle.
Unsolicited, Russell Wilson says as Seahawks sit at 5-10 entering home finale Sunday vs Detroit: “I know for me, I hope it’s not my last game (in Seattle). But at the same time, I know it won’t be my last game in the NFL.” pic.twitter.com/QGPNNN1m1j

The Seahawks are playing their home finale on Sunday, so Wilson is apparently feeling sentimental about it. Combine that with the trade talk and it’s understandable that he would be bringing this up himself. The trade speculation has been increasingly widespread, and that has been the case since last offseason.
At 5-10, this is the worst season Wilson has endured with the Seahawks. Seattle does not sound inclined to dump the quarterback, so this may ultimately come down to Wilson’s preferences. Based on this, he sounds happy to stay, but many rumors suggest otherwise.
