Russell Wilson: 'One common goal'

RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said a report about a division in the team's locker room is not true.

"There's no division in our locker room," Wilson said Thursday. "There's none at all. If anything, I think we've continued to build and continued to grow. I truly believe that.

"The guys we have in the locker room believe we can still be a championship team. Those are the guys we have in this room every day. Every morning we have one common goal, and that's to win football games."

Wilson also addressed the reports that he had issues with wide receiver Percy Harvin, who was traded to the New York Jets on Friday.

"Percy and I never had differences," Wilson said. "We had a lot of similarities, probably, more than anything. We're both guys who want to compete at the highest level, want to win every time we're out there and want the ball in our hands every single play.

"Percy is a great football player, but for whatever reason, it didn't work here. We wish him nothing but the best. But our locker room is great. We have guys that are very positive and really want to work and want to win. We rely on the positive mentality in our locker room.''

Other players agreed with Wilson when asked about a divided locker room.

"I hadn't heard that," strong safety Kam Chancellor said. "But if that's what people are saying, it's absolutely ridiculous."

Free safety Earl Thomas was asked whether it offended him that anyone would insinuate the team had a locker room schism.

"It doesn't offend me at all because they're not here and they don't know," Thomas said. "I think this team is headed in the right direction."

Wilson said these types of comments just go with the territory when you are the defending Super Bowl champions with back-to-back losses and a 3-3 record.

"I'm not sure why the media chose to blow everything out of proportion," Wilson said. "That's just part of it I guess, but you also have to ignore it. Like I always tell you guys, ignore the noise.

"I don't read any of y'all's articles, no offense. I just stay away from it all. I have complete confidence in who I am and the person I'm striving to be every day. I'm an educated person who wants to continue to get better at the game of football but also in life."
