I mean if ANY team would do it, it should have happened by now. There are many times over the years where teams have serious qb needs pop up before the trade deadline.
At what point has anyone said this is a likely trade scenario though? I think we've all accepted it's not a probable event. But that's on KC more than us. There aren't many teams that try and trade for backup QB's mid season. There aren't many teams that have a backup that anyone would want to trade for. Considering the lack of interest in Flynn the free agent, I'm not sure there's increased interest as Flynn the expensive backup. If the Seahawks had a chance to swap Flynn for a top-end positional player, they'd almost certainly do it and see what other backup QB they could find - or just promote Portis. It'd be great misfortune if Wilson then got injured, but the GM that doesn't make that trade shouldn't be in the NFL.

And if he accepts the trade but does not commit to (or show signs that will sign elsewhere after FA) would you still make the deal?
This really is not a hard question....
There's this thing called the franchise tag, you know? Any team willing to trade for Bowe is willing to sign him to a new deal. Any team willing to offer Bowe a deal, he'll be interested in. The franchise tag is available for insurance but probably wouldn't be required in this situation. And the worst case scenario is half a season out of Bowe for a player who barring grave misfortune is going to be sat on the bench for the rest of the year.
