Russell Wilson Odds: Where Could he end up if Seattle Trades him?

Russell Wilson joins Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson and Carson Wentz as the latest big-name quarterback who may be in a new jersey next season.

In a Zoom call on Tuesday, Wilson told reporters that he was “tired of getting hit all the time.”

He was later asked if he was available for trade and Wilson responded by saying that’s a question for Seahawks management.

Wilson threw for over 4,000 yards and 40 touchdowns this season, so it’d be hard to find a team that wouldn’t want his services.

BetOnline has released their odds as to where Wilson could end up.

Now let’s take a look at the five most likely landing spots for Wilson.

Las Vegas Raiders +300

The Raiders have been one of those teams on the hunt for a new quarterback next season.

Yes, they still have Derek Carr for two more years, but cutting or trading him to make room for Wilson would be a significant upgrade.

The Raiders also only allowed 28 sacks on the season (10th) compared to the Seahawks, who allowed 48 (27th). This stat is thanks to Raiders o-line coach Tom Cable, who won Super Bowl 48 with Wilson and the Seahawks.

Dallas Cowboys +600

The Cowboys may seem like a random addition to this list, especially as they haven’t decided on QB Dak Prescott’s future yet.

The Cowboys also don’t have a ton of cap space (estimated $20 million). So, they’d have to do some contract restructuring and trades to fit Wilson’s $32 million cap hit.

However, seeing Wilson playing with receivers like Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb, along with Ezekiel Elliott might make it worth it for the Cowboys to make the trade.

While the Cowboys allowed 44 sacks last season, they still have RG Zack Martin and RT La’el Collins, who’re among the best in the NFL at their positions.

Jacksonville Jaguars +700

Now, the Jaguars are a team who could not only use Wilson’s help but also be able to afford him. They have an estimated $74 million in cap space, which means they can take on Wilson’s contract, beef up their offensive line and address any other possible needs.

The Jaguars have two 2021 first-round picks (No. 1 and No. 25) and could use both of them and more to entice the Seahawks.

Washington Football Team +800

Washington will be looking to improve on their 7-9 season that saw them make the playoffs. Alex Smith’s still the only quarterback under contract, but he hasn’t announced if he’s coming back.

Wilson would be an upgrade over Smith and give Washington stability that they haven’t had at quarterback in forever.

While they allowed 50 sacks, Washington’s o-line was still seen by some experts as being a top-10 option in the league.

San Francisco 49ers +900

The 49ers were seen as being the number one spot to land Rodgers, but San Francisco would be pretty happy if they could land Wilson instead.

The 49ers are only one year removed from playing in Super Bowl 54 and the main reason why they underperformed last season was because of frequent injuries, including QB Jimmy Garoppolo.

Meanwhile, Wilson has not missed a game in his career.

Wilson also loves targeting tight ends, so playing with one of the league’s best in George Kittle would be a dream come true.
