The Seahawks kick off training camp on July 25, and until then, Brock and Salk will count down the top 25 most intriguing Seahawks every weekday at 8:30 a.m. Their list continues with No. 4: Quarterback Russell Wilson.

Listen to the full segment here, and check out the highlights below:

Quick look

• The 30-year-old signed a four-year, $140 million extension with the Seahawks this offseason (details).
• Holds franchise records for career completion percentage (64.2), career passing touchdowns, passing touchdowns in a single season (35), touchdowns in a single-game (5), lowest career interception percentage (1.9), highest career passer rating (100.3), highest passer rating in a single game (158.3), single season passing yards (4,219), and single game passing yards (452), among others.
• In seven seasons with Seattle, Wilson has accrued 25,624 passing yards and 196 touchdowns. He has another 1,952 yards and 17 touchdowns on the ground.

What Brock Huard is saying

“Intriguing as a player? Not necessarily. It is the entire package that makes Russell Wilson so darn intriguing. From his hair to his wardrobe to his videos, to whatever the day brings in the offseason, you don’t know what in the world he’s going to post to social media. But come Wednesday when he reports, you do know for the next five months what you get out of Russell Wilson. He’s intriguing this year because it’s year two with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. Intriguing this year as a football player because you’re wondering if he can continue to build on the most efficient season he’s ever had. Intriguing because this is his team; there is simply no question about it. And Bobby Wagner’s right there alongside him as one of the team captains. But this team will go as far as Russell Wilson takes them. How far can this team go? Well, how special is Russell Wilson going to be? How elite is he going to be? There’s going to be more asked of him. He’s going to have to continue to be razor sharp on his deep balls to Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf and the rest of the fellas. He’s going to have to be awesome in play action. He’s got to do all of those things and there will be more asked of him as the highest-paid player in this franchise and in the history of the league.”
