Seahawks QB Russell Wilson doesn’t see the Giants in his future

TAMPA — Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is spending the weekend with the Yankees, but he’s also kept an eye on what’s been going on in his own sport — including with the Giants, who traded Odell Beckham Jr. to Cleveland and signed Wilson’s former teammate, Golden Tate.

“I was definitely shocked by the Odell move,’’ Wilson said Friday at George M. Steinbrenner Field. “But in sports and in the NFL today, a lot of crazy things happen. To see Antonio Brown go to the Raiders [from the Steelers] and then Odell leaving New York and going to Cleveland, Cleveland will have a good squad. It’s part of the process, I guess. It’s a business.”

After shipping Beckham to the Browns, the Giants signed Tate, who spent the first four seasons of his career with Wilson in Seattle, where they won a title together.

“He can make plays, that’s for sure,’’ Wilson said. “He’ll make people miss. He definitely has that talent.’’

Wilson could learn more about the business side of the sport soon enough.

He’s entering the final year of his contract, and there have been rumors that he might end up with the Giants as Eli Manning’s replacement.

“The reality is a lot of guys move, but for me, I love Seattle,’’ Wilson said. “I won a Super Bowl there, been to two, won a lot of playoff games. I love being there. As far as trades or being moved, you can never be surprised. I have a clear mindset of how much I love Seattle.”

He pointed out that his Super Bowl victory came at MetLife Stadium, so he has fond memories of playing there.

“We love New York, but Seattle is home for us,’’ Wilson said.

And he’ll also be keeping an eye on Kyler Murray, who entered the NFL Draft and has given up a promising baseball career.

“It will be interesting to see if he’s picked first overall,’’ said Wilson, who has talked to Murray about their shared histories of playing both baseball and football. “Most likely he’ll go in the first five, six or seven picks.”
