The Seattle Seahawks have reportedly agreed in principle to trade their franchise quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos for a slew of draft picks and players.
The Broncos, who are now 10/1 to win Super Bowl LVII, pulled off the trade within hours of the news breaking that Aaron Rodgers - thought to be their first-choice target - was staying in Green Bay on a new four-year deal.
The proposed trade with Denver may include Denver's former starting QB Drew Lock, say reports.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported on Tuesday that the Seahawks, who had privately stipulated Wilson would only be allowed to go for a transformational deal, are set to receive multiple first-round draft picks, plus additional picks and players.
Although much of the detail in the deal is yet to be fully ironed out and confirmed, the full package is expected to consist of two first-rounders, two second-rounders, a fifth-rounder, quarterback Lock, defensive tackle Shelby Harris and tight end Noah Fant, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
Seattle, who didn't own a first-round draft pick in 2022 after previous trades, are now likely to select inside the top ten courtesy of Denver's number nine pick.
They could yet use that on a quarterback with Lock, who compiled an 8-13 record in 21 starts for the Broncos, potentially being used as a bridge while a rookie learns Seattle's offense.
Denver's former second-round pick was 0-3 as a starter in 2021, completing 60.4 of his passes in six appearances for 787 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
