Seahawks QB Russell Wilson ‘the best deep ball thrower in the NFL,’ argues Phillip Dorsett
Phillip Dorsett is one of the fastest wide receivers in the NFL, so he needs someone who can throw the deep ball accurately and effectively. Luckily for Dorsett, he signed a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks this offseason and will have six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson throwing him the ball.
The opportunity to play with a talent like Wilson has excited Dorsett, who recently called the Seahawks quarterback “the best deep-ball thrower in the NFL.”
“I personally believe he’s the best deep ball thrower in the NFL,” Phillip Dorsett said of Russell Wilson on Sports Radio 950 KJR. “You can see it week in and week out with DK and Tyler. I’ve been sitting back, taking advantage of the NFL Game Pass (being) free so I’ve just been watching games and you can see it every possession.
Last season for the New England Patriots, Dorsett recorded 29 catches for 397 yards and five touchdowns.
“His deep ball ability and then the way he plays. You can just see it. He’s a magician. I feel like honestly he doesn’t get as much credit as he deserves,” Dorsett furthered about the Seahawks QB. “He’s a great quarterback and the way he does what he does under the center back there is amazing. He’s a magician. He’s Houdini and he can make every throw. It’s a blessing that I get to play with him and I can’t wait to get there and work him.”
The former Miami Hurricane will now join a Seahawks WR group that includes D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and David Moore.
