Russell Wilson has had a great NFL career. He won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks and helped them make the playoffs every year for the first ten years of his career.
Even though the Seahawks have been successful on the field, Wilson is not well liked by his former coworkers. Many of them are quick to point out that he is isolating himself from the team and have negative memories of playing with Wilson. On the most “recent episode of Shannon Sharpe’s” “Club Shay Shay” show, Marshawn Lynch talked a lot about his former quarterback and how he and Russ never had any contact outside of football. In fact, Lynch doesn’t even have His phone number.

Shannon trying to figure out why he and Wilson never spent time together off the field was the best part. He told Wilson that even “7” (John Elway) would come to the original Club Shay Shay at Broncos camp to hang out with the guys, drink beer, and play cards. Lynch had a hilarious response when asked if he had ever been to a party with Russ. He didn’t say a word.

It’s funny to think of Lynch and Wilson going to a party together, because there aren’t many guys in the NFL who are more different. Marshawn seems to be able to get along with almost anyone, as shown by most of the things he’s done in the media.
However, the fact that he didn’t have any kind of talk with Wilson off the field is interesting. He also knows that anything he says about Russ will be seen as mean because of how things ended in Seattle and the big loss in the Super Bowl where he didn’t get the ball on the 1-yard line. Lynch said a lot about Russell Wilson off the field, even though he didn’t say much. He was quick to say that he thought Wilson was a great quarterback and that he’d love to play next to him.
