This Russell Wilson/Bears news should terrify Vikings fans…
If there is any potential off-season move, aside from the annoyance of one Danielle Hunter, it should send shockwaves of fear through the spine of every Minnesota Vikings fan, it would be the Seattle quarterback. Seahawks (for now) Russell Wilson who could join the Chicago. Bear.
While Wilson hasn’t technically asked to be traded (also yet), and the 2021 dead cap money the Seahawks are expected to eat ($ 39 million) makes that unlikely, the Bears appear to be the best fit of the four teams that Wilson would be supposed to be. peeping.
This fact was reinforced by the Chicago Sun Times over the weekend, which said:
“The thought among several sources is that the Bears have prioritized a race against Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson,” writes Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribe. “His agent included the team on a list of four clubs that Wilson would approve a trade to, although he has yet to reach the point where requested. Two of the other three teams on Wilson’s roster can likely be ruled out. The New Orleans Saints are mired in salary cap hell and the Dallas Cowboys should keep Dak Prescott. The fourth is the Las Vegas Raiders, and they have shown strong public support for Derek Carr.
As Vikings fans know, Wilson is 6-0 against Purple and, as one of the league’s top assistants, is capable of changing not only the fate of a franchise, but also change the power dynamics of a division.
The Bears have been a decent quarterback away from the competition for … well decades, but especially the last two seasons. With Wilson under center, they could, along with the Green Bay Packers, push the Vikings to become the Detroit Lions as well.
Hopefully the Seahawks don’t end up trading Wilson, as the Vikings are already struggling with their lack of ceiling space, an ever-growing offensive line, a crumbling special teams unit, and a defense that is in danger of collapsing. to lose. even more grassroots players like Anthony Barr and Hunter.
The last thing they need is having to face Wilson and Aaron Rodgers four times a year. That said, I personally believe Wilson will be in Seattle this season and then elsewhere after the season unless there is a drastic improvement in the Seahawks’ pass blocking and season result.
By then, there could be other teams in the fold, hopefully in the AFC, that Wilson could end up on. Otherwise, it could end up being one of the most nefarious seasons in Viking history both internally and externally.
