Russell Wilson will accept a trade to Dallas? Well that’s certainly spicy but the team is still focused on getting Dak Prescott a new contract to continue as the franchise’s quarterback. What would it take to acquire the Super Bowl winner anyway?

Also of the utmost importance is the fixing the run defense. One player who will be part of things is linebacker Jaylon Smith; the fifth-year player can breath a little bit easier these days as it is believe he has job security heading into the offseason. ESPN’s Mel Kiper believes one rookie who can have an impact on the defense is cornerback Patrick Surtain II. Let’s take a dive into today’s news and notes and examine what the future holds.

Seahawks Russell Wilson identifies Cowboys as 1 of 4 teams he'd accept a trade to :: Cowboys Wire

Realistic trade packages for Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson :: Pro Football Focus

Link If a straight Wilson for Prescott swap wouldn't work for Seattle, Dallas might send a couple picks to the Seahawks and then look to move Prescott elsewhere for a similar haul.

Hypothetical trade package

The key here will be if Seattle is interested in Dak Prescott, who would first need to sign his franchise tag for $37.69 million. If so, this trade could be relatively close to equal. Prescott would of course need a huge extension immediately, even larger than Wilson’s from 2019. But Prescott is also five years younger than Wilson and could help Seattle not miss a beat. If the Seahawks would rather start over and stockpile draft picks, the Cowboys’ 2021 first-round pick at No. 10 overall is not a bad place to start. Another first-rounder in 2022 and perhaps wideout Michael Gallup could round out this trade package. Dallas in this hypothetical would then look to move Prescott elsewhere and recoup whatever capital they just gave up for Wilson.
