Russell Wilson’s future in Seattle was uncertain just a few months ago, as the superstar quarterback expressed his frustrations with the franchise’s roster construction. Fortunately for the Seahawks, it seems like all that drama is water under the bridge.
In fact, Wilson spoke about his relationship with Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll during an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show this Wednesday.
There were a few reports stating that Wilson doesn’t always see eye-to-eye with Carroll. That may have been the case in the past, but it sounds like Wilson and Carroll have recently worked on strengthening their bond.
“I would say it’s stronger. I think me and Pete have gotten closer. Pete and I have always had a great bond but I think we had a great heart to heart,” Wilson said, via ProFootballTalk. “Me and coach Carroll’s relationship is stronger than ever.”
Now that all these trade rumors involving Wilson are officially dead, the Pro Bowl quarterback can shift his focus over to this upcoming season.
During his interview on The Dan Patrick Show, Wilson revealed that all he cares about is winning. As long as that happens, the Seahawks will have nothing to worry about.
“I care about winning, that’s what I want to do. That’s always been my goal, that’s always been my focus, to win it all.”
Wilson will lead a new-look offense this upcoming season. The days of Brian Schottenheimer calling the shots are over, as Shane Waldron is the current offensive coordinator for Seattle.
The Seahawks will start the 2021 season on the road against the Indianapolis Colts.
