Russell Wilson and his former Seattle Seahawks have had a rocky relationship for a long time and now the why has been revealed.

In a vast ESPN StoryThe now-signal-caller of Denver Broncos was reportedly frustrated with a plethora of decisions being made by front office and head coach Pete Carroll.

This includes a heavy attack that cost him a real shot at the league’s MVP and courting college quarterbacks, particularly Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen.

Seahawks GM John Schneider attended then-Texas Tech quarterback Mahomes’ pro day and, according to the report, planned to draft him if he fell to the bottom of the first round.

Incidentally, Mahomes went to the Kansas City Chiefs at number 10 overall.

Despite this, Wilson’s camp was outraged, in fact “f****** pissed off” at the efforts to get a young, dynamic, and most importantly, cheap quarterback.

Just like they took him out of Wisconsin in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

A year later, Schneider made their fury even worse by attending Wyoming – now Buffalo Bills – quarterback, Josh Allen, pro day.

Seattle reportedly spoke to Cleveland about trading Wilson for the #1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft — taking Baker Mayfield first.

There was little interest from the Browns, but Wilson’s agent Mark Rodgers became aware of the call.

That wasn’t the only problem Wilson and Seattle faced. They were trending in two very important but opposite directions.

Wilson reportedly wanted to cook himself – as the popular terminology on social media goes – to throw the ball more often and carry on his legacy as one of the best ever among the center.

In recent years, however, Seattle has sought to build their team in the image of former glory – a relentless defense, power play, especially with Wilson’s dwindling mobility.

After the 2021 season, some within the Seahawks front office saw Wilson as a “descending” force, wondering if his declining mobility would result in lower production.

Whether this is the case will become clear in the coming years, although not everyone in the organization thinks homogeneously.

“The 4.5 speed where he’s scrambling and now he’s running across the field for big yards, that may not come again,” an anonymous Seahawks coach told ESPN.

“But the sense of presence in his pocket, he will always have that… I have no reservations about saying that Russ will continue to compete with his style, and if that starts to slow down a bit, I think he will adapt.

“That’s just who he is. He’ll find a way.’

Wilson signed a four-year $140 million deal with Seattle in 2019, despite tensions simmering beneath the surface.

Crucially, Rodgers inserted a no-trade clause, giving Wilson a certain amount of flexibility — ultimately allowing him to turn down the interest of the New York Giants, New Orleans Saints and others to make his way to Denver in March.

Wilson signed a five-year, $245 million extension with the Broncos last week and faces a week 1 reunion with Seattle on Monday night of the NFL season.
