Wilson told the Seahawks he wants to stay in Seattle, but he also said he'd be willing to play for the Cowboys, Saints, Raiders or Bears if a trade were considered, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Wilson has surpassed Deshaun Watson and Carson Wentz as king of the February rumor mill, with multiple reports suggesting the 32-year-old QB is contemplating an NFL future after Seattle. According to The Athletic, Wilson is frustrated with coach Pete Carroll's emphasis on the running game and wishes the Seahawks had made their pass-blocking more of a priority. He may not be ready to request a trade, but there's no doubt he's making a statement in going public (albeit indirectly) with his willingness to waive his no-trade clause for specific teams. While the Seahawks presumably will try first and foremost to repair the relationship, it does seem the once-unthinkable -- a Russell Wilson trade -- is now on the table as an option. Granted, the rift could be forgotten in a matter of months if Wilson and Co. take flight under new OC Shane Waldron.

Wilson completed 11 of 27 passes for 174 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 30-20 wild-card loss to the Rams. He also ran four times for 50 yards.
EDGE Analysis
The Seahawks showed increased dysfunction toward the end of the season and specifically against the Rams. This was another prime example, and it was perhaps Wilson's worst game of the season. The 32-year-old quarterback threw a costly pick-six to Darious Williams in the second quarter, completed just 41 percent of his passes and was sacked five times. Garbage time provided a slight boost to an otherwise putrid stat line, as he added 49 passing yards and a score in addition to 28 rushing yards on the second to last drive. Wilson appeared to be an MVP front runner to start the season, but he started slipping in the second half of the year and ultimately fell out of the race. Nevertheless, Wilson set career highs in touchdowns (40) and completion percentage (68.8) during the regular season, and his 4,212 passing yards were just eight yards short of a personal best as well. Both DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett will be returning next year as well, so the Seahawks' passing game is equipped to return to the early season pace.

Wilson completed 20 of 36 pass attempts for 181 yards and two touchdowns, adding 29 yards on five rushing attempts in Sunday's 26-23 win over the 49ers.
EDGE Analysis
Wilson was held in check for the first three quarters of action by a varied defense called by 49ers' defensive coordinator (and popular head coach candidate) Robert Saleh, but "Mr. Unlimited" was finally able to break through with 20 points in the fourth quarter to lead his team to victory. The 31-year-old fell seven yards shy of the career-high 4,219 passing yards he threw back in 2016. Unlike that season, Wilson put himself firmly in the MVP conversation with a new high water mark of 40 passing touchdowns (to 13 interceptions) to go along with 513 rushing yards and two more scores. Wilson continues to be the true definition of a dual-threat quarterback with his incredible accuracy at all three levels, plus arm strength and the ability to use his legs as a weapon. He will begin the 2021 fantasy season as an elite option with a high floor and high ceiling, but first, he will have to take on the Rams in the first round of the playoffs Sunday.

Wilson completed 20 of 32 pass attempts for 225 yards and a touchdown while adding nine yards and a touchdown on three carries during Sunday's 20-9 win over the Rams.
EDGE Analysis
Wilson was hurried early and often by one of the NFL's top defensive units as he took five sacks and struggled to connect with his pass catchers at times. He managed to avoid turnovers, however, and contributed his second rushing touchdown of the season before throwing a TD pass to Jacob Hollister to put the game away. After a stellar start to the campaign, Wilson has been held under 250 yards in six of his last seven games and has thrown multiple touchdown passes just twice in that stretch. With the NFC West crown in hand, he will set his sights on playoff positioning in next Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.

Wilson completed 18 of 27 passes for 121 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 20-15 win over Washington. He also carried six times for 52 yards.
EDGE Analysis
With a banged-up Seattle offensive line up against a fierce Washington pass rush, Wilson struggled to get much going through the air. He finished with just 4.5 yards per passing attempt -- his lowest mark of the year. However, the veteran quarterback was quite effective on the ground, ripping off a 38-yard run in the second quarter. That season-long scramble set up Seattle's first touchdown of the day, a 10-yard toss to tight end Jacob Hollister. The Seahawks let off the gas in the second half, however, as they failed to score on their final four offensive drives. Nevertheless, they accomplished enough to win their 10th game of the year and clinch a third straight playoff appearance. Up next is a crucial division tilt against the Rams in Week 16.

Wilson completed 21 of 27 passes for 206 yards and four touchdowns with one interception in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Jets.
EDGE Analysis
Aside from a first-quarter pick on a bomb into the end zone intended for DK Metcalf, Wilson was unchallenged by an overwhelmed Jets secondary and found four different receivers for scores, matching his TD total from his prior four games combined. Wilson now has a career-high 36 passing touchdowns (and a career-high 12 INTs) on the season, but he'll face a tougher test in Week 15's road matchup with Washington.

Wilson completed 27 of 43 pass attempts for 263 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 13 against the Giants. He added seven carries for 45 yards.
EDGE Analysis
Wilson led a strong opening drive that led to a field goal, racking up 35 yards on six pass attempts. However, the Seahawks' offense didn't manage to put up points again until midway through the fourth quarter, when Wilson connected with Chris Carson for a 28-yard touchdown. The result was an inefficient performance, summarized by Wilson averaging only 6.1 yards per attempt. Despite the down performance, Wilson did manage to add value on the ground, surpassing 40 rushing yards for the third time in his last four games. He and Seahawks will look to get back on track in what should be an exceptional Week 14 matchup against the Jets.

Wilson completed 22 of 31 passes for 230 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 23-17 win over the Eagles. He also rushed six times for 12 yards.
EDGE Analysis
Wilson didn't put up gaudy numbers, but he did enough to lead the Seahawks to victory and did not turn the ball over. The quarterback's lone touchdown came on a one-yard fade pass to David Moore during the second quarter, but Wilson had another one dropped by wideout DK Metcalf in the fourth. Although his scoring pace has slowed since his sensational start, Wilson remains a strong play ahead of Week 13's matchup against the Giants.

Wilson completed 23 of 28 passes for 197 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Seahawks' 28-21 win over the Cardinals on Thursday night. He also rushed 10 times for 42 yards and committed a fumble that was recovered by the offense.
EDGE Analysis
Wilson checked in under 200 passing yards for the first time all season, but he turned in a much-needed turnover-free effort devoid of some of the risky throws and questionable decisions that had characterized his play in recent contests. Wilson had thrown seven of his 10 interceptions on the campaign in three of his prior four games, but Thursday, he appeared to stick to what the defense gave him and picked his spots effectively. Two of those came on scoring strikes of 25 and 11 yards to DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, respectively, in the first half. Wilson would go on to connect with eight different pass catchers overall on the night while posting only his second interception-free performance since Week 3. He'll now look to carry over the momentum into a Week 12 Monday night matchup against the Eagles on Nov. 30.

Wilson completed 22 of 37 passes for 248 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Rams. He also lost a fumble and added eight carries for 60 yards.
EDGE Analysis
The veteran quarterback was never comfortable behind his offensive line, as he was quick to flee the pocket or concede the sack, taking six total sacks for a loss of 28 yards. Wilson appeared increasingly uncomfortable in the fourth quarter when the Seahawks were trying to erase a two-possession deficit, and perhaps the most glaring lapse was a delay of game penalty on third down with 7:59 remaining in regulation. At one point in the fourth quarter, second-year receiver DK Metcalf beat Jalen Ramsey deep with a clear path to the end zone, but Wilson didn't even look his way, a move that manifested visible frustration from Metcalf. The Seahawks will fall to third place in the division as a result, and they'll need to calibrate quickly with a Thursday night game against Arizona on deck.
