The Seattle Seahawks continued their organized team activities (OTAs) at VMAC in Renton on Thursday, and what better way to finish the day than get an in-depth press conference with Russell Wilson?

As you all know by now, Wilson was the subject of many trade rumors and alleged discontent in the early part of this offseason, but all of that drama has since subsided and we’re onto Wilson’s 10th season as Seattle’s starting quarterback. Here are some of the key points from his first major Seahawks media appearance over the past several months. Topics addressed included those aforementioned trade rumors, his future with the Seahawks, his relationship with Pete Carroll, and more.

On his long-term future with the Seahawks

On his relationship with Pete Carroll

On a possible contract restructure

On that “tired of getting hit too much” line

On new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron

A whole lot to unpack and even more to overanalyze! It sounds like Wilson had some gripes with the way the season ended (as did all of us) but he claims this is all done and dusted and we can move on to what is perhaps the most pivotal year of his career and this erae of Seahawks football.
