Seattle Wilson Downplays Reported Strife

Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson said Thursday that he is not concerned about the recent reports about his relationship with his former team, the Seattle Seahawks.

“I’m not worried about any of this,” Wilson said, according to This is Kevin Patra. “I know how it all happened, and how it happened, and the whole situation. But at the same time, I know that every second I valued was there and tried to give my all every day.”

He added: “Seattle will always mean the whole world to me, it will always be my home for me, obviously it will always be a special place in my heart. …. There will always be love for Seattle in my heart.”

Wilson’s comments came after ESPN’s Brady Henderson reported that the caller was disappointed with the Seahawks’ rude approach and her lack of say in personnel decisions. Wilson also appeared to be “furious” with Seattle head coach Pete Carroll for dropping his bid to be named the best player of 2019.

In addition, Henderson said that Seattle tried to discuss Wilson’s exchange with the Cleveland Browns ahead of the 2018 NFL Draft. Wilson confirmed Thursday that the Seahawks have tried to trade him in the past.

“They definitely tried a few times to see what was out there,” Wilson said, according to ESPN’s Jeff Legwold. “It’s part of the business, being a professional and everything in between.”

Seattle loaned Wilson to the Broncos in March in exchange for recruiting the best players in the draft, quarterback Drew Lock, close forward Noah Fant and defenseman Shelby Harris. Seahawks owner Jody Allen has previously stated that Wilson wants to leave the team.

The nine-time pro pitcher will make his Denver debut in Seattle against the Seahawks on Monday.

“I hope that after 10 years of trying to make a difference and win a lot of football games, and that we all did it together, I think it was really special,” Wilson added, according to Patra.

The quarterback won the Super Bowl title, passing for 37,059 yards and 292 touchdowns in 158 starts for Seattle from 2012 to 2021.
