Seahawks QB Russell Wilson Includes The Cowboys On His Destination List

As if the weren't wrapped up in enough drama already, current Seahawks star has thrown some gasoline on the fire.

After reports broke that Wilson had formally requested a from the Seahawks, 's Adam Schefter clarified that this was not the case. He did add, though, that Russell Wilson has a list of teams he would consider being traded to.

The Dallas Cowboys were on said totally hypothetical list.

Russell Wilson is of course an incredible player, one who found himself in the middle of the debate early on in the . But trading away assets for a quarterback when you already have a franchise guy in your building would be a dumb move. One that not even the Cowboys would consider, I would expect.

Either way, it's entertaining that Dallas finds themselves on these destination lists time after time, despite consistent underachieving and dysfunction for the last 20-something years.

Americas Team, I suppose.

Plus who wouldn't want to play with those receiving weapons?

Wilson is angry because he wants to be the defacto GM and have say over personnel and scheme…for him to want to be in Dallas where even the hired head coach is powerless and only Jerry determines personnel and scheme…well, that is both hilarious and shows Wilson is not as knowledgeable as he thinks.


I would make trade for Russ , this “dumb move you talking about isn’t that dumb , especially if you can’t get Dak signed , you could trade Dak for Russ who would be on a quite a bit cheaper contract , IDK what Russ contract would look like but if it’s like the way D Watson’s contract works which brought D Watson’s cost to a team if he was traded would only cost the team financially , 30 mill so I imagine Russ contract works in a similar way , if so you telling me I’m getting a guy who’s ONLY missed the playoffs once in like 9 seasons for like 30 mill going forward ?

You talk about a guy who’s dealt with a bad O-Line or a bad D , at least we got the guys on O-Line and they just getting injured , whereas the Seahawks don’t have a good O-Line even when they healthy .

I’d do the trade you’d get a ridiculously cheap contract in Russ and save about 10 mill or so for same production as Dak if not better which we can then use to retain some guys , maybe find a way to keep Gallup ? And then going forward we’ll have plenty of players we can put around Russ


If they could find a way and not lose significant draft capital I would be for it. But it’s gonna require a 1st rounder and then some to aquire him which I don’t think is worth it. Our defense would have to make significant strides to make this a win now team which is what a Wilson trade would entail.


Comparing resumes, Wilson has a big edge over DP. Two Super Bowls, double digits wins every year but one (9-7), playoffs 8 out of 9 yrs, never missed a game, etc. Agree w/TUTX88, would do that trade. Only downside would be age, but with DPs injured ankle?, kind of cancels out.


And Wilson plays in the toughest division in NFC. DP the worst. Wilson with the Cowboys make us big favorites to win division. All that said, probably won’t happen.

Would love to have Wilson as QB. Great improvement over Dack. Just imagine him with our offensive weapons ! But it ain’t happenning.
