Russell Wilson: Seattle’s the place where I’m at right now and I love it

Mike Florio and Peter King run through several brewing offseason storylines like how long Tom Brady's retirement will last and if Aaron Rodgers will stay in Green Bay with a round of Playing the Percentages.

While Green Bay’s Aaron Rogers is assumed to be the first quarterback domino to fall in this year’s offseason, there’s another Super Bowl-winning quarterback in the NFC who might be changing addresses.

Things seemed like they’ve calmed down between quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seahawks. But there’s still a chance he could be moved if they fall apart again.

In a Tuesday interview on the TODAY Show, Wilson was asked by Craig Melvin — who identified himself as a Washington fan — if Wilson would ever consider playing on the East Coast. Wilson’s answer likely wasn’t all that satisfactory for Commanders fans.

“I love the East Coast, but I think the West Coast is better for me right now,” Wilson said, via JP Finlay of “I’ve got my whole family over here. I’m from Richmond, I know what you mean. I’ve got people hitting me up every day — all my friends and all that from the East Coast. But Seattle’s the place where I’m at right now and I love it and it’s great.”

Wilson missed three games with a finger injury in 2021 but compiled a 6-8 record in the games he played. Seattle finished with a losing record for the first time since Wilson took over as the team’s QB1 back in 2012.

Wilson was a Pro Bowler, having completed 65 percent of his passes for 3,113 yards with 25 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also rushed for 183 yards and a pair of TDs.
