But coach Pete Carroll remains determined to get his team back in the Super Bowl, sooner rather than later. Russell Wilson led the Seahawks to a 5-game winning streak at the start of last season. He ended the campaign with 4,200+ passing yards, 40 touchdowns against 13 interceptions.

Russell Wilson most likely to remain with the Seahawks in 2021

Despite rumors linking Russell Wilson with a move away from the Seahawks, Josina Anderson confirmed as per her unnamed source that Russell Wilson is going nowhere anytime soon.

Wilson revealed in an interview with Pro Football Talk earlier this week that he is getting tired of all the ‘hits’ he endures due to an unstable offensive line.

“You never want to get hit. That’s just, that’s the reality of playing this position. Ask any quarterback who wants to play this game, and I think, at the same time, it’s part of the job and everything else.

“I think that the reality is is that I’ve definitely been hit, been sacked, I don’t know, almost 400 times.

“And so we’ve got to get better. I’ve got to find ways to get better, too. And so just continue to try to find that. But I think that as we continue to go along the process, and I think about my career and what I want to be able to do, I think it always starts up front—offensively, defensively. It always does,” Wilson told Curtis Crabtree.
