Carlos Dunlap: Russell Wilson Assured Me He’ll Be Back With Seahawks


On Tuesday, Seahawks DE Carlos Dunlap met with reporters for the first time since agreeing to a new deal with Seattle. 

"<strongDunlap said that he spoke with Russell Wilson before agreeing to return to the Seahawks and Wilson assured him that he will remain in Seattle for the 2021 season. 

β€œHe’s with us… here to stay,” Dunlap said, per Omar Ruiz

Wilson’s future with the Seahawks has been a popular subject the past few months after his comments about changes needing to be made, particularly at offensive line. 

The Bears reportedly made the Seahawks a serious offer this offseason, but it clearly wasn’t enough for Seattle to move on from their star quarterback. 

It will be interesting to see how all of this plays out next year and whether or not Seattle will be more willing to make Wilson available for trade at that point. 

Wilson, 32, is a former third-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2012. He was entering the final year of his five-year, $89.142 million contract when the Seahawks signed him to a four-year, $140 million extension that included a $65 million signing bonus. 

Wilson stands to make a base salary of $21 million for the 2021 season. 

In 2020, Wilson appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks and completed 68.8 percent of his passes for 4,212 yards, 40 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

We’ll have more on Wilson and the Seahawks as the news is available.
