Russell Wilson hasn't demanded a trade despite an earlier report that the quarterback's camp had brought up possible trade destinations with the Seattle Seahawks, his agent Mark Rodgers told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Wilson told the organization he wants to remain in Seattle but said he would only waive his no-trade clause to go to the Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, Las Vegas Raiders, and Chicago Bears, Schefter adds.

Seattle hasn't approached Wilson with any potential deals, and the quarterback currently doesn't expect to be dealt, sources told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. But there reportedly is a belief among NFL executives that Wilson will eventually be made available due to ongoing friction between the two sides.

It was reported earlier Thursday that Wilson's camp had approached the Seahawks to discuss a possible trade due to his frustration with the organization, sources told The Athletic's Michael-Shawn Dugar, Mike Sando, and Jayson Jenks.

The team's slow response to addressing his offensive line is one major force driving Wilson's displeasure. The veteran signal-caller recently noted publicly he is frustrated with getting hit too much.

Wilson and head coach Pete Carroll talked about improving the club's pass protection, but the quarterback was not pleased with his coach's response, according to The Athletic. Carroll suggested Wilson should have faith in the team's plans.

The 32-year-old's lack of input regarding organizational matters apparently also factors into his growing dissatisfaction with the franchise. Wilson stated on "The Dan Patrick Show" this offseason that he believes dialogue between him and the Seahawks should happen more often.

Seattle's longtime passer stormed out of a meeting with coaches during the 2020 campaign after his proposals for fixing the offense were shot down, The Athletic reports.

Wilson has been coy when discussing the possibility of a trade, deferring the question to the organization.

"I'm not sure if I'm available or not, that's a Seahawks question," he said earlier in February.
