The 32-year-old may have more clarity on the matter at the start of the second half of February.
NFL insider Josina Anderson tweeted on Monday afternoon that a source informed her that Wilson “isn’t getting traded” this offseason:
Seattle keeping Wilson makes all kinds of sense even if he’s displeased with the franchise’s inability to build an above-average offensive line to protect him. According to ESPN stats, Wilson finished the regular season tied for second in the league with 40 touchdown passes. He was seventh in passer rating (105.1) and eighth in total QBR (73.5) among eligible signal-callers.
As of last week, BetOnline.ag listed the Las Vegas Raiders as the favorites to make a move for Wilson when the new NFL year opens next month. The Dallas Cowboys, Washington Football Team, San Francisco 49ers, and New England Patriots were also mentioned as possible suitors.
Wilson would be an upgrade at the position for just about any team that isn’t the Kansas City Chiefs or Green Bay Packers. That, above anything else, may be the biggest reason the Seahawks don’t trade him during the spring or summer months.
