Trade winds are blowing after Jalen Hurts’ poor performance. Although the midfielder says he will return as starter in 2022, the national media are not convinced and Russell Wilson’s name continues to be associated with Philadelphia Eagle.
No wonder it’s a discussion topic Dating back to last season. NFL Network Drafting Expert Daniel Jeremiah was the latest to hit the drums and he made a realistic commercial proposition. He asked fans how they would feel when Philly gave up all three first-round picks (15th overall, 16th overall, 19th overall) to the Seattle Seahawks because of Wilson. The Eagles will also make a second appearance in 2023. That’s a high asking price for a staffing midfielder on decline, who will turn 34 in November.
Wilson, eight-time professional bowler, end of campaign in 2021 by throwing 3,113 yards with 25 touchdowns with six interceptions. He hit 259 out of 400 (64.8%) and hit a record 6-8 in 14 games. Remember, he missed three games due to a finger injury. While Wilson’s numbers looked great on paper, it wasn’t his best season and the folks in Seattle started throwing the dreaded word “regression” at him.
If the Eagles trade for Wilson, they better try to assemble a group of young players (think: Andre Dillard, Jalen Reagor, Jalen Hurts, Miles Sanders) and one of the picks in the first round. The Seahawks may not accept a low offer, but it’s a more palatable discussion. Wilson is not the long-term answer in Philly.
