A substantial portion of the NFL has reportedly called to find out if they can trade for Russell Wilson.
According to Michael Silver, “about a third of the league” has contacted the Seahawks to find out if the superstar passer is truly on the market. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
The asking price if he’s dealt? Silver reported that teams believe it’ll cost at least three first round picks. You can listen to his full report below.
The @Seahawks are staying quiet in the wake of Russell Wilson’s recent comments… but that isn’t stopping teams from calling to see if he’s available… @nflnetwork @AndrewSiciliano pic.twitter.com/Xs3Xwp6A2L

Are the Seahawks actually going to pull the trigger on trading Russell Wilson? Is that something that might actually happen?
Two weeks ago, I thought that idea was pure insanity. Now, I’m not so sure. Something very strange is going on in Seattle, and a team might offer a king’s ransom for him.

Seeing as how the two sides seem to be very far apart right now, I wouldn’t be shocked by anything. We saw Matthew Stafford get traded to the Rams for a bag.
Anything is possible in the NFL, especially when people no longer see eye-to-eye.
