Quandre Diggs answers if Seahawks have hit rebuild mode after Russell Wilson trade

The Seattle Seahawks lost two key pieces of their team this offseason but Quandre Diggs insists the team hasn't hit the rebuild mode. The Seahawks stunned the NFL world when they traded nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos.

After sending Wilson to the Broncos, the Seahawks released six-time First-team All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner. "It's always tough to see a guy like Russ go," Diggs said, per ESPN. "It's the business at NFL and you see Russ and Bobby go and it's just like, 'Sheesh, what mode are we in?' Being able to talk to Pete, being able to understand that we're not in a rebuild mode, we're trying to get this thing back rolling, build a team differently a little bit.

Like I said, sucks to see those guys go. Two big leaders, two big guys that's played a critical part of my career. Sucks to see them go, but for me, I had to make a decision based on myself, myself and my family."

Diggs: No way the Seahawks are in a rebuild

The Seahawks got quarterback Drew Lock in the Wilson trade.

Lock didn't prove himself as a starter in Denver and it is hard to imagine Lock leading the Seahawks to the playoffs. "I've just got to trust in what I've been told and what we've talked about," Diggs said. "It's kind of hard to see Pete want a full rebuild.

It's just the way he's wired, the way he's triggered, he's all about competing and winning every day. That's always been his deal. For me to think that he's not in it to win it, it would be crazy for me to believe that. For me, I'm just trusting in what I've been told and I'm going to do my job to make sure it's not a rebuild and just go out there and make plays and try to help as much as I can."
