Just a year ago, quarterback Russell Wilson and the Chicago Bears were hot names connected via the NFL’s rumor mill. It seemed as though every outlet had the two paired in some fashion.

In the end, we all know the Bears and Wilson did not join forces. Instead, Chicago traded up for their own franchise quarterback when they selected Justin Fields.

Wilson stayed in Seattle for one more year, even though a divorce seemed imminent.

Tuesday, the separation was finalized. On a day where we saw Aaron Rodgers state he was sticking around Green Bay, it was Wilson who was traded to the Denver Broncos.

With Russell Wilson gone, could the Chicago Bears pry a receiver from the Seattle Seahawks?

Now that Wilson is on his way out, the Seahawks appear to be entering a rebuilding stage. This year’s draft class isn’t the strongest at the quarterback position, and Seattle might just play out the 2022 season with the newly-acquired Drew Lock under center.

Should the Seahawks be open for business, one has to wonder whether or not they would look to trade guys like Tyler Lockett or DK Metcalf.

Each of them have plenty to offer a new team, and Seattle could end up stacking draft capital as they prepare for life without Russ.

If general manager Ryan Poles wants to solidify one position before free agency officially hits, he should reach out and see what it would take to land either Lockett or Metcalf. One of the following trades just might get it done.
