Could Russell Wilson change Eli Manning in New York?
@ColinCowherd is hearing items… 👀👀 https://t.co/r8rZY0Qbqr
Cowherd noted the rumor was coming from the “entertainment/agent planet” and that all people would likely deny it, but prompt Wilson to the Giants would make perception:
“Wilson’s wife is Ciara. She is a singer and an entertainer. She would prefer to are living in New York. The Giants have to have a quarterback, and there’s nobody in the draft they really like. So, just keep in mind this. A whole lot of items insert up: Very last calendar year of Russell’s deal. His wife would prefer New York. Seattle is not an entertainment mecca. … The Giants have to have a star quarterback to change Eli [Manning].”
The question, of course, is how Wilson would conclusion up in New York. Would the Seattle Seahawks in fact take into account investing him even though he was continue to below deal, even if for only just one more time? And would the Giants be keen to pay the mountain of draft picks these an unprecedented deal would need?
The Chicago Bears sent the Oakland Raiders two-1st round picks, a third-round choose and a sixth-round choose for Khalil Mack, a defensive conclusion, in 2018. The selling price level for a franchise quarterback, in his key at the age of 30, would pretty much assuredly be at minimum 3 1st-round picks, and would also consist of other picks as well.
Or could Wilson conclusion up in New York as a cost-free agent future offseason? The difficulty there would be that the Seahawks could generally make the most of the franchise tag and, even though it would be unbelievably high-priced, the Seahawks may well watch it as a worthwhile expenditure to continue to keep their playoff window open.
Certainly, this is all wild speculation at this level. It is attainable that Wilson has no wish to leave the Seahawks and will indication a prolonged-time period extension at some level in the future calendar year. But it can be also uncomplicated to see how the Giants and Wilson could probably be a awesome fit.
Wilson would also appear to an offense with remarkable playmakers in Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham Jr. and Evan Engram. Incorporating a star quarterback would make New York’s offense dynamic.
But never get far too fired up, Giants fans—this is all a pipe dream at this level.
