Jason Smith: “The longer Russell Wilson is out, the greater the chance he returns to the Seahawks in 2022. Think about it: He was playing his best football, in a year where Seattle was in a ‘let’s just see what happens’ type of year. I think there’s a great chance he would change his mind about leaving, if he sees what could have been if he remained healthy. Plus, if he gets a shot to be the QB target in free agency, I would think he would want that spotlight all to himself. So, if Aaron Rodgers gets to have this upcoming offseason to be the big fish quarterback in free agency, I can see Wilson waiting one more year so that he can have that spotlight in 2023.”
