According to Jordan Schultz, Wilson is open to waiving his no-trade clause for the Broncos, Giant and Saints.
With the Seahawks currently struggling and sitting at 4-8, it’s very easy to see the team deciding to make a move.

As Schultz pointed out, it would be wild to see Wilson on the Saints. Imagine him leading that offense with Sean Payton as his head coach.
The Saints already have a solid offense, but Wilson would take them to a totally different level. The Saints are loaded with weapons, which is something the former Wisconsin star has really never had.
Russell Wilson before his injury this year: 90-of-125 (72%), 1196 yds., 10 TD, 1 INT, 125.3 rating
Wilson after his injury: 84-of-134 (63%), 846 yds., 4 TD, 3 INT, 81.3 rating
He’s clearly playing hurt. Bet on him reurning to full health & reaching his normal form long-term.

Of course, there’s still a chance the Seahawks decide to stick with Wilson. Do I think that happens? I have no idea.
It seems like Wilson’s best days in Seattle are long behind him and a divorce might benefit both sides. If the Seahawks can get a bunch of picks, I could easily see him being moved to one of his preferred destinations.
Huge Team Win for us @Seahawks! Not to mention @AdrianPeterson tying Jim Brown’s all time rushing TD record! Blessed to play with you! Congrats! Go Hawks! pic.twitter.com/454dkaeM6L

We’ll see how it all shakes out, but there might be big changes on the horizon in Seattle.
