Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Tuesday, July 6 – for your Seattle Seahawks.

NFL Media: Russell Wilson Will Be Seahawks Team MVP

Russell Wilson is no stranger to MVP conversations, as he's typically among the preseason favorites for the award year after year. But Wilson still has famously never received an MVP vote despite making the Pro Bowl seven times, leading the league in touchdowns once and never finishing below .500 in his nine seasons.

That could all change in 2021. Wilson's new OC Shane Waldron should speed up the offense and allow more run-after-catch opportunities for guys like DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Wilson also has a multitude of weapons, from Metcalf and Lockett to new arrivals in Gerald Everett and D'Wayne Eskridge.

Around the NFL writer Dan Hanzus selected each NFL team's MVP last week, and Wilson stood out for the Seahawks. Here's what Hanzus wrote about his selection:

"Russell Wilson needn't strain to find motivation this offseason. Criticism was everywhere around the franchise star after a second-half slump and first-round playoff exit prefaced a fairly clunky bit of star versus team gamesmanship in the media this spring. Wilson's long-term future in Seattle still seems like it could be up in the air, making the 2021 season a massive one for both Wilson and the Seahawks as an organization. Wilson was reportedly involved in the decision-making process that led to Shane Waldron being selected to replace dismissed offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. I expect Wilson to return with a vengeance, lighting up the scoreboard while reigniting the TIME FOR RUSSELL WILSON TO WIN MVP media narrative."
