The Seattle Seahawks handled the preseason a bit differently this year, with most of their starters sitting out the three exhibition games. Quarterback Russell Wilson didn’t see a single snap this summer, but that doesn’t worry him heading into the 2021 NFL regular season.

“I’m super excited to get out there to play ball again,” Wilson told reporters on Thursday. “It’s everything you worked for this offseason, to play this game, get back out there with your guys, and just enjoy it. It’s a gift to be able to play this position for this long, I’m going into my tenth year so it’s a blessing. I have a lot longer to go, I believe that I have another 13 years to go in my head. Maybe more, who knows?”

Even though he didn’t see any game action, Wilson was right there on the sidelines and participating in the pregame warmups to ensure he didn’t miss a beat. The QB has also been working diligently with the Seahawks’ new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron to make sure the two are on the same page heading into the season.

“I think more than anything else, I love the process of preparing and the process of winning,” Wilson continued. “That’s been my mindset all offseason. I’m ready to roll, excited, and our guys are pumped up too.”

The Seahawks are set to square off against the Colts in their opener in Indianapolis this Sunday. Kickoff is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. PT.
