Seahawks trade Russell Wilson to Broncos in blockbuster deal: report

Mar 8 2022, 7:16 pm

Russell Wilson’s time with the Seattle Seahawks is coming to an end.

The former Super Bowl winning quarterback is involved in one of the “largest trades in NFL history,” according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, which will see Wilson head to Denver.

 

In return, the Seahawks will reportedly receive quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, defensive lineman Shelby Harris, as well as two first-round draft picks, two second-round picks, and a fifth-round pick. A fourth-round pick will accompany Wilson from Seattle to Denver.

The deal signifies the end of an era in Seattle. Wilson, 33, has been the Seahawks’ starting quarterback for the past decade.

It was Wilson who led Seattle to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, winning XLVIII in 2014, against the Broncos team he will now suit up for. Seahawks posted a winning record in Wilson’s first nine seasons and made the playoffs eight times in 10 years. Wilson has been named to nine Pro Bowls during his illustrious career, and is a lock to make the Hall of Fame when he eventually retires.
