The Athletic also mentions Wilson “stormed out of the room” after feeling that his suggestions for improving the franchise were dismissed by Seahawks coaches.
“Before the Thursday night game against Arizona, Wilson met with his coaches. For some time, Wilson has sought — even pushed — for influence within the organization regarding scheme and personnel. In the meeting, he outlined his own ideas for how to fix the offense,” the article reads.
“His suggestions were dismissed, multiple sources told The Athletic — another reminder to Wilson that the Seahawks did not see him the same way he saw himself, as a player who had earned greater control over his situation, his future, his legacy. He stormed out of the room.”
If Wilson were to be available via trade, it would certainly be one of the most interesting storylines to watch this offseason leading up to the NFL Draft.
As one of the top quarterbacks in the league, there would undeniably be plenty of interest.
