Russell Wilson could very easily go from “Go ‘Hawks!” to “Go Birds!” this winter

While trading for Deshaun Watson will be messy and dealing for Derek Carr will certainly be more complicated than expected, the Eagles should look to acquire Russell Wilson in a massive blockbuster trade with the Seattle Seahawks involving Jalen Hurts. All three first-round picks and whatever else it takes to get the deal done, just get the deal done. This is your golden opportunity.

Seattle must accept Wilson does not want to be there anymore and that an inevitable rebuild is upon them. The Seahawks do not have a first-round pick this year because they traded for a safety with no ball skills in Jamal Adams. Hurts would be the unquestioned starter in Seattle for Pete Carroll, or whoever replaces him. It does not really matter because this team will be terrible.

Ultimately, this is about getting a hall-of-fame quarterback in the latter-third of his career. Just imagine Wilson going from “Go’ Hawks!” to “Go Birds!” He would make the Eagles Super Bowl-caliber immediately. Perhaps most importantly, how would Philadelphia fans feel about him joining a division rival instead? Be aggressive to keep Wilson out of New York or Washington.

There are other options out there to improve at quarterback, but these three teams are the ones the Eagles should look at possibly making a trade with to help upgrade the position immediately.
