3 perfect complements for Russell Wilson if he were to be traded
Here are three perfect complements for Russell Wilson if he were to be traded after the 2021 NFL season, based on realistic potential landing spots.
#1 - Courtland Sutton, Denver Broncos
Courtland Sutton's build is similar to DK Metcalf's. Sutton is 6'4 tall and 216 pounds with excellent athleticism. Despite dealing with below-average quarterbacks, Sutton has recorded 2,585 yards for 15.1 yards per reception in 48 games. His averages would likely skyrocket with someone like Russell Wilson. Their styles would appear to blend well together.
#2 - Kenny Golladay, New York Giants
Kenny Golladay has made a career for himself by being a deep threat wide receiver. He has averaged more than 15 yards per reception in each of his completed seasons so far in the NFL. His career 16.2 yards per reception is higher than Metcalf's 14.9 and Lockett's 13.5. Golladay would be an extremely dangerous weapon in a Russell Wilson-led offense. He is 6'4 tall and 213 pounds.
#3 - Chase Claypool, Pittsburgh Steelers
Chase Claypool is yet another 6'4 tall receiver, but he weighs in at a massive 238 pounds. He is a physically gifted athlete who has shown that he can make big plays. He averaged 15 yards per reception in his career, despite playing with a, somewhat, compromised version of Ben Roethlisberger for both of his seasons.
Chase Claypool has demonstrated a ton of potential in his young career. Upgrading quarterbacks to Russell Wilson could unlock the true weapon that he is capable of being. Claypool does most of his damage on deep routes, which is the specialty of Russell Wilson's dynamic style.
