Seattle, New Orleans Mayors Engage In Friendly Feud Over Russell Wilson

Who will get their wish?

Russell Wilson is caught in the middle of a unique feud.

As you likely know, the Seahawks quarterback isn’t entirely sold on staying with Seattle this season after ongoing issues with the NFL team’s ability to protect him on the field. This has sparked a firestorm of rumors about a potential trade in recent weeks.

Wilson reportedly has four teams he is comfortable with as possible trade destinations: the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, New Orleans Saints and Las Vegas Raiders. And the mayor of one of those cities is going all in.

New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell took to Twitter on Saturday with a message appearing to encourage Wilson to bring his talents to the Big Easy.

So Seattle’s mayor, Jenny Durkan, fired back a few hours later with a quick (yet friendly) jab of her own.

In the end, Wilson only can play for one team. Which team that is, however, remains to be seen.
