    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson won one Super Bowl with the team but had complained about being excluded from personnel decisions.

    Russell Wilson, the Seahawks’ face for the past decade, is set to be traded to the Denver Broncos as part of a multi-player deal.

    Reports

    Wilson and a fourth-round draught pick would be sent to Denver in exchange for two first-round picks, two second-round picks, a fifth-round pick, tight end Noah Fant, quarterback Drew Lock, and defensive end Shelby Harris, according to multiple reports.

    Wilson’s no-trade clause must be dropped before the deal can be completed, and every player involved must pass a physical. The teams involved will not make a formal announcement until the new league year begins on March 16.

    Wilson Trade

    Broncos General Manager George Paton managed the deal for Wilson, and it comes as the Denver franchise is ready to be sold for the first time in over 40 years following the death of longtime owner Pat Bowlen.

    Wilson will be guided by Coach Nathaniel Hackett, who the Broncos hired in January after working as an offensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers for the past three seasons. Hackett takes over a Broncos offense ranked in the bottom third of the league for the last five years.

    Coach Carroll Statement

    Carroll said, “I’ve been here a long time, and if I hadn’t had Russell, I probably wouldn’t have been here as long.” “We owe Russell a tremendous amount.”
