Russell Wilson rumors: 5 teams that should trade for him

Russell Wilson scrambles last season against the Chargers at Century Link Field

Wilson is under contract in 2019 at $17 million and could earn $30.3 million in 2020 and $36.4 million in 2021 before his franchise tag would skyrocket to $52.4 million for 2022. Not only that, they would have to make him the highest paid player in National Football League history.

While the world waited on word on Wilson, the Seahawks did make a few moves, with restricted free agents George Fant and Quinton Jefferson officially signing their tenders, and nine exclusive rights free agents also signing their tenders. That is a huge price when it comes to acquiring any player. Earlier this month, Wilson set a deadline of midnight Monday for the sides to reach a long-term contract. Here are the five teams most in need of Wilson's services, starting with the Denver Broncos. But can they live with trading away Wilson instead?

NY in this instance certainly means the Giants.

A trade involving Wilson might lose the Seahawks a lot of fans, especially with how hard it is to land an elite quarterback in the NFL. Realistically, the Broncos would have to give up multiple first-round draft picks, as well as a high-profile player.

Oil rig workers rescue dog 137 miles off coast of Thailand
A dog that was castaway in the ocean has been brought to safety after a miraculous rescue by Thai oil workers. Payalaw said that he plans to adopt Boonrod if no one claims ownership of her, the Bangkok Post reported .

He is also a fan-favorite, having led the team to two Super Bowls (so far).

Per a league source, the Seahawks think that Wilson would like to play elsewhere, even if he hasn't and wouldn't ever say it. Meeting his demands might get Wilson and his agent back to the table after the deadline. I don't see the team trying to re-work Miller's contract.

While the Seattle Seahawks and Russell Wilson don't appear to be on the same page, yet, it doesn't necessarily mean that the time the quarterback and the franchise have spent together is coming to an end.
