Wilson’s go back to Seattle was among the NFL’s biggest storylines heading into Week 1, and the fans’ early response suggests they’ll attempt to be considered a factor through the entire game.
Regardless of the boos, there is absolutely no arguing with Wilson’s place among the most significant players in Seahawks history. The team selected him with a third-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft, and he built a resume that included a brilliant Bowl title, nine Pro Bowl selections and four seasons with an increase of than 4,000 passing yards.
Seattle visited the playoffs in eight of his 10 seasons among the most consistent teams in the league in large part due to his presence under center.
Yet things took a turn late in his tenure with the club, with rumors of his eventual exit hovering in his final season.
Seahawks fans might not have forgotten at this time.
