Russell Wilson reiterated his desire to play for the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday but admitted the NFL can be a business ripe with unknowns.

Appearing on "The Dan Patrick Show," the star quarterback said he believes other teams have spoken to Seattle about trading for him.

"Yeah, I definitely believe (the Seahawks have) gotten calls for sure," Wilson said. "I think any time you're a player that tries to produce every week and has done it consistently, I think people are going to call for sure and I think that's part of the process."

When asked whether he was available via trade, the eight-time Pro Bowler replied, "I'm not sure if I'm available or not, that's a Seahawks question."

Despite the cryptic response, Wilson later added, "Hopefully I'll play in Seattle forever," according to Andrew Perloff.

Wilson has been vocal about the Seahawks' struggles following their playoff exit. He was adamant on being involved in the club's hiring of its next offensive coordinator, and reiterated Tuesday that he wanted to play a larger role in the franchise's decision-making process.

"For me, personally, I want to be able to be involved," Wilson said. "Because, at the end of the day, it's your legacy. ... I think that relationship's really key and that dialogue - especially being a veteran player - that dialogue is really important."

"It helps to be involved more," he added. "But I think that dialogue (in Seattle) should happen more often."

Rumors surfaced Monday that a couple of teams called the Seahawks to inquire about the veteran passer, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported there's no chance that he's dealt.

The 32-year-old has a no-trade clause on his current contract.
