Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson finally cleared the air after an offseason rife with trade speculation.

Following Super Bowl LV, Wilson made clear his frustrations with both the team's offensive line and his lack of influence on organizational decisions. His agent then listed four teams for which the star passer would waive his no-trade clause.

Wilson addressed the rocky offseason Thursday.

"I think there were some unfortunate frustrations after the season. ... I think, unfortunately, it got a little bit blown out of proportion," Wilson said, according to Curtis Crabtree of SportsRadio KJR.

He continued, "We made it clear that I did not request a trade. ... I wanted to play in Seattle, but if I had to go somewhere, here's the teams I would consider."

Wilson insisted his relationship with head coach Pete Carroll couldn't be stronger, and he's happy to still be in a Seahawks uniform.

"I love Seattle. I love playing here," he said, according to Seahawks reporter John Boyle.

"I love this city, I love this place, I love everything about it. ... For me, personally, I hope I play my whole career here. That's my mission, that's my goal," he added.

The seven-time Pro Bowler is entering his 10th season at the helm, and the former Super Bowl champion is looking to once again reach the mountaintop.
