The Seahawks should go full throttle in their rebuilding project. Deal Russell TodayBy Steven ToroniWe are now three years removed from the Seattle Seahawks bizarre catastrophe of a loss in Super Bowl XLIX. You know, the game in which The Seahawks were one yard away from winning their second Super Bowl in a row. If Marshawn Lynch took the ball on the final play and barreled his way in for a touchdown, I probably would not be writing this article right now. As fate would have it, Pete Carroll and the Seahawks called a play that would haunt Seahawks fans for years to come. Russell Wilson threw an interception to Malcolm Butler on the goal line on an attempted slant route for Ricardo Lockette.As cringe-worthy as that moment in history is to recall for Seahawks fans, what perhaps is more painful are the events that have transpired since that night. While the Seahawks were resilient in making the playoffs two years in a row after the 2015 season, early exits left a lot to be desired in the grunge Capital of America.Now coming off a season where they did not make the playoffs for the first time in the Russell Wilson era, the Seahawks have more questions in terms of their future than ever before under the eight-year tenure.

And that is exactly why they should trade the four-time Pro BowlerHere are seven reasons why it's time to trade Wilson so that Seattle can build for the future and avoid mediocrity for the next three years.
