Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has revealed the four teams he would play for if the Seattle Seahawks were to trade him.

It was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter on Thursday.

The Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, and Las Vegas Raiders were on his list.

Wilson’s agent Mark Rodgers also confirmed that he did not demand a trade.

For Raider Nation, it should show just how good of a program the team is running.

The veteran quarterback wanting to get a potential trade to the Raiders could two things.

A. Wilson could believe in the Raiders and what they are doing. Wilson may like what offensive coordinator Greg Olson is doing on the field as well as the positive steps the Raiders are making toward the playoffs.

B. Wilson may believe he could potentially beat out Raiders starting quarterback Derek Carr for the starting job and/or he sees that Carr and himself are comparable on the field.

Sports Illustrated's Raider Maven has previously reported that multiple teams have inquired about starting quarterback Derek Carr, but that the Silver and Black are completely committed to Carr. 

It's no different for Wilson.  The Raiders have an obligation to listen to every call that comes from around the NFL about Carr, but they aren't looking to move him.

It also shouldn’t be a surprise that Wilson took time to think about where he would want to go to.

At the end of last season, Wilson expressed his frustration over the many hits he took on the field. He also stated his desire to have more say in the Seahawks personnel decisions.

Wilson has historically not been known for publicly airing grievances during his time in the NFL.

Whether Wilson gets traded or not, in the veteran quarterback’s eyes, the Raiders are running and improving into one of the better offenses in the league.
