Wilson spent 10 seasons with the Seahawks where he became one of the most consistent NFL quarterbacks. The perennial MVP contender won a Super Bowl but he became frustrated as results declined.

Meanwhile, Carroll’s Seahawks reached the playoffs with a revived Geno Smith under center. It was one of the most surprising long-term dramas of the past few seasons.
