NFL - US Sports: Seahawks rebuff Commanders' Wilson bid

The Seattle Seahawks have reportedly refused a blockbuster trade offer from the Washington Commanders for Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson.

The Commanders, 20/1 to win the NFC Championship next year, believe they are one piece away from completing the jigsaw that can take them back to their former glory days.

Unfortunately, that piece is now viewed as the most important on the board and teams have been unwilling to part with veteran quarterbacks over the last few years.

QBs going up in value after Stafford

The exception to that rule was when the Detroit Lions allowed Matthew Stafford to leave Motor City for Los Angeles 13 months ago and, after he helped to deliver a Rams Super Bowl win in his first season, the price for a repeat is likely to have increased further.

Washington offered multiple first-round picks for Wilson, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, but the proposed trade didn't get off the ground.

Earlier this week, Seattle coach Pete Carroll insisted the Seahawks have "no intention" of trading the 10-year veteran and nine-time Pro Bowl selection.

Rapoport, reporting from among the NFL's movers and shakers at the Combine in Indianapolis, says Washington have every intention of acquiring a QB upgrade this offseason.

Rivera doing his homework

Head coach Ron Rivera stated this week that Washington - holding the 11th overall pick in the upcoming draft - are completing meticulous research on the current class of free agents and draft prospects.

"This year we are being very proactive, looking, searching," Rivera said on Tuesday in Indianapolis.

"We are trying to truly cover every base. Every time you hear something, you're checking into it. And so we've got to do our work. We've got to do our due diligence."
