Analyzing the Arizona Cardinals and the NFC West’s free agency moves
Most Prolific Move: Keeping Russell Wilson
Wilson was the subject of trade talks and sources even claimed the Chicago Bears aggressively pursued him. Wilson can still wind up in Las Vegas or New Orleans, per his list of teams between now and July. However, he also stated that he wants to remain a Seahawk.
Wilson continues to play at the top of his game. And if the Seahawks coaching staff lets him cook, he will once again post MVP-caliber numbers.

Where Do the Stand?
As long as Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson run the show in Seattle, they will always contend for the NFC West Crown. Look for the Cardinals to once again face two tough matchups, as was the case in 2020, featuring two down-to-the-wire thrillers.
Rank in the NFC West: 2nd
As implied above, the Seahawks will only go as far as Russell Wilson takes them. However, with a returning Chris Carson and offensive pieces, expect them to once again pose a challenge to all three NFC West contenders. Question marks remain on defense.
