Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will be traded to the Denver Broncos, according to ESPN.
Blockbuster: After weeks of negotiations, in one of the largest trades in NFL history, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos have agreed to terms for a deal involving Super-Bowl winning QB Russell Wilson, sources tell ESPN.
Sources say that Denver is willing to give a significant package to Seattle for Wilson, and the quarterback is expected to waive his no-trade clause, which will allow him to be traded to Denver.
Denver general manager George Paton reportedly initiated trade talks seeking after Wilson at least two weeks ago, and it was rumored that Aaron Rodgers might be their guy.
However, it appears that Wilson has been their guy all along, and their decision has nothing to do with Rodgers’ decision to stay in Green Bay. The trade will give the Broncos what they’ve been looking for since the retirement of Peyton Manning, as they haven’t had a standout quarterback since.
I have to say, it’s gonna be weird not seeing Russell Wilson in Seattle, considering the man has spent 10 years there.
Nevertheless, this is gonna be a big time game changer for Denver.
