Exploring the idea of a Russell Wilson-Denver Broncos trade

Rumors fly on eve of Seahawks QB Russell Wilson's contract deadline

Wilson is a Super Bowl-winning quarterback who has had a lot of success since being drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the third round of the 2012 draft. But Wilson may be asking for fully guaranteed money throughout much, if not all, of the contract. Wilson may be trying to get a contract that ties into the cap to prevent falling behind other players who would sign larger contracts in future years.

While the world waited on word on Wilson, the Seahawks did make a few moves, with restricted free agents George Fant and Quinton Jefferson officially signing their tenders, and nine exclusive rights free agents also signing their tenders.

- Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) April 15, 2019Russell Wilson trade by Seattle Seahawks? That is "quarterback money".

When the Broncos acquired Flacco, it did not necessarily put the team out of contention for a first-round quarterback.

Wilson still has about a decade of elite football left, and he could be the ideal fit for Denver, which needs a quarterback to try and compete with the Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes.

Is it reasonable for the team to make an audible and trade for Wilson despite having Flacco?

Unbelievable sprint to win the Boston Marathon
Fauble and fellow American Jared Ward were also in the top 10, clocking 2:09:09 and 2:09:25 in seventh and eighth respectively. Lawrence Cherono of Kenya emerged victorious in the men's race Monday, barely squeaking past Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia.

Things aren't great in Seattle, where Russell Wilson isn't happy with his contract.

Wilson is a mobile quarterback who has the ability to escape pressure, which would be a necessity if he were to be traded to the Broncos.

One of the biggest questions, when it comes to a trade like this, is, what would the Broncos have to give up in order to acquire Wilson?

There are a lot of players in the National Football League that would hold out for more money if they didn't come to terms on a contract extension.

Many of them have indicated that Russell Wilson wants to be the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL. They also believe that this unspoken dynamic will cause Wilson to drive a harder bargain with them than he would with another team.

NY in this instance certainly means the Giants. I just see too many roadblocks for it to actually come to fruition.
