NEW ORLEANS, La. (WDSU) — The 2021 NFL offseason is shaping up to be one of the craziest in recent memory.

Already, two high-profile quarterbacks have been traded and more could have new homes over the next few months.

n blockbuster deals the Los Angeles Rams acquired Matthew Stafford from the Detroit Lions and the Philadelphia Eagles traded Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts.

On Thursday morning The Athletic reported a growing rift between the Seattle Seahawks front office and star quarterback Russell Wilson could lead to the quarterback being traded.

An eight-time Pro Bowl selection who led Seattle to a championship in Super Bowl XLVIII, Wilson is reportedly unhappy with the way Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has built the offense and with the way team general manager John Schneider has constructed the roster.

Wilson has a no-trade clause in the 4-year, $140 million contract he signed in 2019, but the article says teams he and his representatives are interested in if the situation in Seattle becomes untenable are the Las Vegas Raiders, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets and New Orleans Saints.

The Saints will presumably have an opening at quarterback since it’s expected Drew Brees will retire from the NFL sometime during the offseason.
