Russell Wilson picks an interesting hat to sign at the Pro Bowl
Despite Nick Sirianni and GM Howie Roseman verbally committing to Jalen Hurts in 2022, quarterback rumors will be swirling around the Eagles all offseason long.
The Eagles have been linked to Wilson as a potential suitor in recent weeks, the latest rumors coming from NFL reporter Albert Breer:
“If I had to guess, I’d say he’ll eventually get moved. And I’d have said the destination was going to be the Saints a month ago. Now that Sean Payton’s gone, let’s put him in the NFC East … to the Eagles. In a way, it’d be a sort of redemptive move for Howie Roseman, who was part of a front office that planned to take Wilson in the third round in 2012, only to have Seattle scoop him up earlier in the round.”
During last weekend’s Pro Bowl, Russell Wilson stopped to autograph some gear for a fan. The hat he signed wasn’t that of the Seahawks, however:
A disgruntled star QB choosing to leave his mark on Eagles gear certainly raises some eyebrows. Now, did Wilson just sign whatever the fan provided out of sheer kindness? Probably.
But Eagles fans see everything — and in Philly, this gesture almost definitely means he’ll be donning midnight green in 2022. First James Harden comes to Philadelphia, now Russell Wilson? Sound the alarms.
