Russell Wilson, Pete Carroll 'are on the same page' says Brandon Marshall


It's been an eventful offseason for the Seattle Seahawks, at least in terms of the rumor mill.

Russell Wilson has vocally aired frustrations with the organization in terms of modernizing the offensive approach and giving him better pass protection, going as far as having his agent leak a list of teams he would approve a trade to, in the event he demands a trade.

However, despite attempts from those teams such as Chicago to acquire Wilson, it appears he will stay put in Seattle through at least next season.

If you trust his former teammate Brandon Marshall, it will be even longer than that.

"Russell Wilson is going to be a Seattle Seahawk for a very long time," he said on First Things First Wednesday morning.

Marshall made sure to indicate he is reporting this fact, rather than giving his opinion, alluding this is sourced information.

"Now we can't predict the future... We got so many things that can come into play down the road. We know that. But right now, Pete Carroll said right now, 'The difference in philosophy that we have? Let's get on the same page. I need to give my Hall-of-Fame quarterback everything he needs to be successful to lead this team."


In fact, Marshall claims that the relationship between Wilson and Carroll is better than "it has ever been." 

They are on the same page.

The former Seattle Seahawk added Russell Wilson wants to stay in Seattle and that sometimes franchises need to go through turbulence like this to come out on the other side better than before.

"[Wilson] really loves Kobe Bryant's story. He really loves Derek Jeter's story when we're talking about one guy staying in one organization for 20 years," he added. "The problem is those guys won. He has won but that was a very long time [ago]. 

Russell Wilson is not thinking about Super Bowl 2. He's thinking about Super Bowl 3, Super Bowl 4.
