The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks have agreed on a Russell Wilson trade, per Adam Schefter. The terms are not fully known, but the trade is dependent on a physical and Wilson’s approval.
The full compensation has been revealed. The Denver Broncos will be getting Russell Wilson as well as a fourth-round pick. The Seattle Seahawks receive: Two first-round draft picks, two second-round draft picks, a fifth-round pick, quarterback Drew Lock, defensive tackle Shelby Harris, and tight end Noah Fant, per Ian Rapoport.
The Seahawks know that they are simply unable to compete in a loaded NFC West, so they are committing completely to the rebuild. It’s tank for Bryce Young season. As for the Broncos, they are making a run at the most difficult division in the NFL. It’s hilarious how Derek Carr, a top 12 quarterback who has a case for top 10, is now the worst quarterback in that division. If you ask me, I think it’s time for the Raiders to trade Derek Carr and just blow it all up and pray to be better five years down the line.
Then you have Russell Wilson who gets out of a terrible situation in the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle had no future, Wilson is incredibly fortunate he got out when he did. The only thing is, he goes to an even more competitive division. The only thing is, he has an exponentially better roster than he had in Seattle.
The AFC West is shaping up to be one of the most entertaining division in the NFL this season. There are four top 12 quarterbacks, with Derek Carr hovering around the 10-12 range so it is certainly possible for them all to be top 10 quarterbacks. All of which are great rosters, outside of the Raiders but good luck getting Alex to try and admit that. The true winners of this trade are football fans.
