Wilson’s name had been mentioned in trade rumors over the last few weeks, but in his media availability, he made clear that he wants to win championships in Seattle.

“For me, I think what I’m really super passionate about obviously is my goal is to win more Super Bowls, and my plan is to win them here. It’s that simple. There’s nothing really else other than that,” Wilson said, via 710 ESPN Seattle.
Wilson denied having any “uncertainty” about his future ahead of the team’s Week 18 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

“There’s no uncertainty in that sense for me,” he added. “That’s how my mindset’s always been. I’m grateful just to put my cleats on again and go after it. I think as you continue to go through your career, every one of these moments, every step on the field, every time I get to come out to practice I enjoy it that much more. I always thought I used to enjoy it when I was younger, I love it that much more.”
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll dismissed any trade rumors earlier in the week.
“The kind of conversation we have behind the scenes are not in line with the rumors. OK? There you go. No, they’re not at all. We’ve been talking, we’ve been together and connected throughout this whole season, and that’s why it’s easy to dismiss those at this time,” he said.

During the offseason, Wilson’s agents said that the Super Bowl-winning quarterback had a list of potential trade destinations, including the Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, Las Vegas Raiders or Chicago Bears.
Wilson is signed through the 2023 season and has a no-trade clause in place.
