Mike Silver shook up the NFL on Monday when he revealed the Seattle Seahawks were fielding trade calls about quarterback Russell Wilson. On Tuesday, Silver joined Dan Patrick on his show and went into more detail.It's clear Seattle is listening to offers because general manager John Schneider always listens when opposing GMs call him. There is absolutely no way the Seahawks will actually trade Wilson this offseason. © Provided by The Big Lead Russell Wilson, Wild Card Round - Los Angeles Rams v Seattle Seahawks | Abbie Parr/Getty Images

Seattle is coming off a solid season in which it won the NFC West at 12-4. While the Seahawks had a disappointing showing in a wild card loss to the Los Angeles Rams, the team isn't far from being a Super Bowl contender. Trading Wilson would be blindly hitting the reset button on a roster ready to win now.

There are almost no quarterbacks Seattle could acquire in return for Wilson that would make the team better than it is now, and that includes the top prospects in this year's draft class. Unless the Seahawks somehow landed Deshaun Watson and some picks in a quarterback swap, there's no logical reason to make a move.
Wilson has had three phenomenal seasons in a row, and at 32 he hasn't dropped off at all. In 2020, the eight-time Pro Bowler completed a career-best 68.8 percent of his passes for 4,212 yards, with a career-high 40 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He finished seventh in the NFL in quarterback rating (105.1) and eighth in QBR (73.5). He is still an elite quarterback. On the downside, he was sacked 47 times, which was the third-most in the NFL.
Head coach Pete Carroll will be 70 in September, he's not signing up for a rebuild right now. Wilson is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and a perennial MVP contender. While his relationship with the team may be a bit fractured at the moment, they can get back on the same page. All Seattle has to do is start to build him an offensive line and all will be well.
Teams are calling the Seahawks, who will keep listening. But there's zero chance Seattle actually trades Wilson this offseason.

Tim Tebow predicts how Urban Meyer will work with Trevor Lawrence
Tim Tebow believes Urban Meyer and Trevor Lawrence can save the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Tim Tebow expects his former Florida head coach Urban Meyer and incoming franchise quarterback Trevor Lawrence to do great things together with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Tebow won national championships and a Heisman Trophy playing for Meyer at Florida in the late 2000s. The Jacksonville native knows it is not going to be easy for Lawrence to turn this downtrodden AFC South franchise around, but he told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on his podcast that this potentially transcendent head coach/quarterback pairing should have all of Duval excited.
“They have to pull the trigger and make that happen,” Tebow told Schefter. “I think that Trevor brings so much to the table. Not only is he a great athlete that has an incredible skill set, but he’s also a very mature young man that has been in a lot of big moments.
“That really helps with the pressure. Having the chance to possibly come to a place in Jacksonville that will be super excited to have him and really, I guess, as a city bring him in with open arms, I think that will be really encouraging for a young quarterback.
“He’ll have the chance, if he gets teamed up with Urban, one of the things I love about Urban is he’s going to put someone in a position where their strengths can flourish. He’s always done that. I believe he’ll always do that.”Shahid Khan is counting on Urban Meyer and Trevor Lawrence to save his Jaguars
Jacksonville is one of the worst franchises in the NFL and in one of the smallest media markets. The Jaguars have made the AFC playoffs once since Tebow starred in Gainesville. After winning their first game of the 2020 NFL season, Jacksonville went on a 15-game losing streak, putting the Jaguars in position to take Lawrence No. 1 overall out of Clemson in the 2021 NFL Draft.
While Meyer has won everywhere he has been in college, this is the NFL. Though Lawrence is the best quarterback prospect since arguably Peyton Manning, “The Sheriff” told him firsthand that he will have to cover up a lot of holes on his rebuilding team. Overall, owner Shahid Khan is trusting the Lawrence/Meyer partnership will save his struggling Jaguars franchise from despair.
Tebow’s belief in the duo feels a tad optimistic, but Jacksonville now has hope with these two.Next: College football power rankings: Top 30 programs of all-time
