Blockbuster: After weeks of negotiations, in one of the largest trades in NFL history, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos have agreed to terms for a deal involving Super-Bowl winning QB Russell Wilson, sources tell ESPN. Trade is pending a physical and Wilson’s approval. Trade package:

Seattle gets QB Drew Lock, TE Noah Fant, DL Shelby Harris, two first-round picks, two second-round picks and a fifth-round pick.

Denver gets Russell Wilson and a fourth-round pick.

FFToday’s Take: This is a monster deal for both teams but leaves the Seahawks without a proven quarterback. The Broncos have been QB shopping for the better part of two years and finally get a proven NFL QB in Wilson. Despite losing an athletic tight end in Fant, Wilson will have Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton on the outside. Albert Okwuegbunam is likely to become a fantasy darling among touts.
