Mission: Omission is full.
As is customized for NFL groups, the Seahawks despatched a letter to season-ticket holders earlier within the week, operating down the prior season and why they need to drop hard-earned cash on subsequent season. This yr’s rendition, although, incorporates a curious oversight: There is not any point out of franchise passer Russell Wilson anyplace in, close to or across the letter.

Perhaps it is only a very poor oversight. The letter in its entirety solely mentions two gamers by identify — huge receivers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett — so perhaps there wasn’t an urgency to incorporate Wilson’s identify on the listing.
However the letter does point out the franchise-record 459 factors scored this yr, so perhaps it will be honest to incorporate one of many most important causes for that growth, proper? Particularly once you’re making an attempt to promote season tickets and wish to embody star points of interest.
So, oversight? In all probability not.
A rift is reportedly rising between Seattle’s franchise passer and the group, with a number of points proving divisive. Wilson is reportedly displeased with the firing of offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and the best way the workforce has did not construct a top-tier offense line. The Seahawks are supposedly upset that Wilson is airing his grievances in public, probably resulting in the omission.
The newest little bit of drama solely provides gasoline to Wilson commerce rumors, although it could be unlikely that the star is dealt earlier than the beginning of the 2021 season.
Perhaps it is a bit of pettiness on the a part of the ‘Hawks, however the fireplace solely appears to be rising this offseason.
