It is only day four into the NFL offseason and it seems everything is not so great in the city of Seattle.
Over the past few days, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been venting out his frustrations about getting hit way too much.
He recently spoke about it with Dan Patrick on Tuesday, where Wilson made it clear he was not happy with getting sacked 394 times in nine seasons.
That is almost 40 sacks per season. So, if anything, his frustrations are warranted to a degree.
Wilson has a right to say what he wants, he is his own man. However, saying all this is not sitting right within the Seahawks organization as a whole.
Especially saying it so publicly.
During Patrick’s show on Wednesday, he stated that a source from Seattle told him that management is not happy at all with Wilson and his camp.
Wilson has been the face of the franchise since he was giving the starting role back in 2012. This is really the first time in his nine seasons in Seattle where he has made headlines in this matter.
Which has been surprising for a lot of people as well causing some concern for the 12’s if things can be fixed with both parties.
It is only February, and the two sides have some time before the season starts to really hash out everything and make sure everyone is happy on both sides.
Personally, I don’t think a trade will happen with Wilson where he would be leaving Seattle.
That just seems way too far fetched of a thing to happen.
But anything can happen, honestly. It is the NFL offseason.
The Seahawks need to figure their main issue of fixing his offensive line if they want to keep Wilson happy. If significant changes aren’t made this offseason, what then between Wilson’s camp and the front office?
Will just have to wait and see at this point. One thing is for certain - the friction between Wilson’s camp and the Seahawks front office is very much real.
