Russell Wilson is one of a number of high profile NFL quarterbacks who could be on the move this offseason. While all signs point to the Seattle Seahawks refusing to trade him, Wilson may demand a move. He made the first indication of that on Friday, when he removed any mention of the franchise from his Twitter bio.

That's fairly childish of Wilson, as it was when Kyler Murray did the same thing with the Arizona Cardinals. But it's also not a great sign for his future in Seattle.

Last offseason, Wilson had a list of acceptable trade destinations ready and there was clearly turmoil behind the scenes of the organization. He denied requesting a trade and claimed he wanted to play his whole career in Seattle. But, I mean, what was he supposed to say?

This latest move is yet another indication that the Pete Carroll-Russell Wilson Era in Seattle is winding down. The pairing has been wildly successful since Russell entered the NFL in 2012, but things have grown stale. The 2021 season was the worst campaign the Seahawks have had with Wilson at quarterback, stumbling to a 7-10 record.

It feels like it's only a matter of time before Wilson is playing elsewhere.
