Rumors have floated for months dating back to the regular season that Russell Wilson wasn’t completely happy with his situation in the Seattle Seahawks organization. Seattle endured a disappointing season, but the rumors were largely taken as just that: rumors. The odds of Seattle moving their Super Bowl-winning, Pro Bowl-caliber quarterback seemed slim at best.
But the NFL world was rocked on Tuesday afternoon, as Adam Schefter announced Wilson would be heading to the Denver Broncos in a blockbuster trade.
Wilson replaces last year’s Week 1 starter for the Broncos, Teddy Bridgewater, as well as incumbent Drew Lock, who took over for an injured Bridgewater late in the season.
Denver finished 7-10 last season, with an outside shot at the playoffs in the final month of the season. With Wilson in the fold and a clear commitment to winning now after sending mixed messages last season, the Broncos are going all-in for the 2022-23 season to compete for Super Bowl 57.
The trade reportedly includes multiple first round picks returning to Seattle as well as other picks and player compensation.
