Seahawks have star QB in mind to replace Russell Wilson?

Pete Carroll smiles at a press conference

The Russell Wilson era in Seattle ended on Tuesday when the Seahawks traded the star quarterback to the Denver Broncos, but that does not necessarily mean they have given up on contending next season.

Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network reports that the Seahawks will explore trade scenarios for Deshaun Watson. Seattle acquired Drew Lock as part of the Wilson deal, but they now have the draft capital that would be needed to land a player like Watson.

Like Wilson, Watson has a full no-trade clause. The Houston Texans star would have to approve a trade to Seattle or any other team. We know of at least two other NFC teams that are said to have interest.

Many teams have been hesitant to pursue Watson due to the sexual assault allegations against him. Prosecutors have not yet announced whether the 26-year-old will face criminal charges. Once there is more clarity with that, the Texans may have an easier time dealing him.
