8. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks
There are plenty of rumors that Russell Wilson could be on the move this offseason. A potential split between him and the Seattle Seahawks has been on the table before but this time, it seems to be much closer to reality.
If he does leave Seattle, he will have finished with a record of 104-53-1 — only failing to win 10 games in a season twice. On top of that, he has two Super Bowl appearances with one ring.
Even this past season, he continued to play well despite a 6-8 record. He threw for 3,113 yards with 25 touchdowns and only six picks. Wilson continues to be a top-10 quarterback and could climb even higher if he heads to another team where he feels more comfortable.
7. Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams
It took 13 years but Matthew Stafford finally got his first playoff win. Formerly of the Detroit Lions, Stafford was traded to the Los Angeles Rams this offseason and he promptly led them to a 12-5 record while throwing for 4,886 yards with 41 touchdowns.
Not everything was great as he ended up with 17 interceptions, tying with Trevor Lawrence for the most in the league. Of course, it’s much easier to overlook all those picks when there are 41 touchdowns.
Stafford definitely took a step forward in L.A. and has a real shot at winning a title with his new club before his career is done.
