Rams may have to deal with Russell Wilson until quarterback is 45
By Dan Parzych
If all goes well for Russell Wilson, the Los Angeles Rams may be dealing with the Seattle Seahawks star until he’s 45.
Since joining the Seattle Seahawks in 2012, Russell Wilson has been a nightmare for the most part each time the quarterback faces the Los Angeles Rams, and the scary factor is he doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
In the middle of his eighth NFL season, Wilson continues to play at a high enough level to the point where the Seahawks quarterback is currently in the running for MVP honors when the time comes, although it’s going to be difficult to top Lamar Jackson.
Still, just the fact that Wilson is even being considered at this stage in his career shows just how lucky Seattle is to have him under center, and what’s even more exciting for the Seahawks is he plans to be around for a long time.
With Wilson celebrating his 31st birthday on Friday, the Seahawks star made it clear once again how he would love to be able to play until 45.
While this is always easier said than done since age tends to catch up with most players, when seeing how great of shape Wilson continues to be in, there’s no reason to question whether he’s capable of pulling it off.
Another 14 years of Wilson sounds like an absolute nightmare for a team like the Rams, but at least they will be ready for the challenge.
Despite some of the struggles Los Angeles has been dealing with in 2019, the good news for the Rams is the team still appears to be strongly built for years to come.
On top of Wilson and the Seahawks continuing to be one of the biggest threats within the division, the Rams learned this season the San Francisco 49ers are just as much trouble, meaning Los Angeles will need to be prepared for years of tough competition.
As crazy as it may seem for someone like Wilson to still be a major threat at 45, would this really come as a surprise at all to not only Rams fans, but football fans in general?
Sadly, if Tom Brady and Drew Brees can continue to find ways to play at MVP levels at their age, if Wilson were to be able to do the same, this wouldn’t come as a surprise one bit down the road.
