Russell Wilson Obviously Wanted Out of Seattle

Reports have the Seahawks trading QB Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos and Doug Gottlieb understands why they would move their future Hall-of-Famer. Much like Tom Brady in New England, there’s no way they would move him unless he made it clear he wouldn’t play in Seattle. The Seahawks did the right thing, trading him while they could still get a good return instead of waiting until he was a lame duck.

Doug Gottlieb: “You only trade Russell Wilson if Russell Wilson is not going to play for you anymore, if Russell Wilson is done. And while the demands weren’t made public...Russell Wilson was done! It’s the same as when Tom Brady left New England.”
