Tyrann Mathieu: Russell Wilson wants New York

Could Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson truly end up playing for the New York Giants? It’s an idea that’s been batted around quite a bit this offseason, fueled by the belief that his wife, Ciara, has her sights set on moving to The Big Apple, Dan Benton of USA Today reports.

However, Wilson seemed to pump the brakes on that speculation in mid-March when he said he couldn’t envision himself playing New York.

“The reality is a lot of guys move, but for me, I love Seattle,” Wilson said via the New York Post. “I won a Super Bowl there, been to two, won a lot of playoff games. I love being there. As far as trades or being moved, you can never be surprised. I have a clear mindset of how much I love Seattle.

“We love New York, but Seattle is home for us.”

Meanwhile, Seahawks general manager John Schneider completely shot down the notion, dismissing it as little more than blogger fodder.

“I don’t have any other reason to believe that other than, like, website rumors and stuff like that,” Schneider told reporters. “We’ve been in communication with his agent, Mark (Rodgers). I’m sure we’ll continue to talk. There are some guys that are unrestricted free agents right now, so we try to work through that process.”

Despite the comments by both Schneider and Wilson, the speculation has persisted. And it regained some steam earlier this month when reports surfaced that Wilson wanted a new deal by April 15 or else.

With less than 24 hours remaining until that deadline comes and potentially goes, Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu has suddenly weighed in with some potential inside information, claiming Wilson does, in fact, want to play in New York.

While Mathieu does seem like and odd and random source of information, he has repeatedly praised Wilson and the two appear to be quite friendly, so perhaps he’s more in the know than we realize?
