Seahawks Trade QB Russell Wilson to Broncos

The Seahawks have agreed to trade QB Russell Wilson to the Broncos. Seattle is reportedly receiving five draft picks: Two first-rounders, two second-rounders, and a fifth-rounder. Denver quarterback Drew Lock and defensive lineman Shelby Harris are also a part of the deal, along with tight end Noah Fant.

Wilson, a nine-time Pro Bowler, will join forces with new Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett, who previously served as the Packers offensive coordinator. The duo will now face a stacked AFC West, which includes Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, Justin Herbert and the Charges, and Derek Carr and the Raiders.

The 33-year-old quarterback has long been the subject of trade rumors. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had said at the NFL Scouting Combine that the team had “no intention” of making a move.
