Leader Safety Tyrann Mathieu says he has inside information about Russell Wilson's interest in leaving the Seahawks.
Responding to our message about the Seahawks thinking that Wilson wants to play elsewhere, Mathieu went on Twitter to say that he knew where Wilson really wanted to play: New York.
"Russ wants New York," wrote Mathieu. "But you did not hear that from T."
But we just heard that from T, and if it would be easy to move on like a late-night tweet from a player who is not able to know the facts, Mathieu has many once stressed the respect he has for Wilson. . It seems unlikely that Mathieu half exclaims against a player he respects so much.
And, of course, Mathieu is far from being the first to propose a Wilson-New York link. Rumors that Wilson eventually joined the Giants have been the subject of much discussion during the off-season. Wilson will join the other New York team, the Jets, will not take place because the Jets have Sam Darnold, but the Giants will leave Eli Manning as soon as possible.
The Giants would still have a lot to do before acquiring Wilson this year. It will not be easy either next year, as the Seahawks can use the franchise tag to keep it. But there is a lot of smoke.
