Russell Wilson to Sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers
1 month ago

Former Seahawks and Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson is signing a 1-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

One man’s trash is another man’s gold. Embattled quarterback Russell Wilson is signing a one-year $1.2 million deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers. In what will go down as one of the worst trades and contract extensions of all time. The Denver Broncos released Wilson just two years after giving up three players (quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, and defensive tackle Shelby Harris), two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and a fifth-round pick in exchange for Wilson and a fourth-round pick. Then Denver signed Wilson to five-year, $242.6 million deal after he arrived. Wilson went 11-19 as the starter for Denver. Denver now has to take $85 million hit in dead money over the next two seasons. Yikes….

 

 

Now on to Pittsburgh, Wilson will compete with incumbent QB Kenny Pickett. Much like his time in Seattle, Wilson looks to be a good fit with the Steelers due to their emphasis on good defense and a committed running game. Russell still has a good deep ball to pair with wide receiver George Pickens and a good running tandem in backs Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren. Wilson should be able to continue head coach Mike Tomlin’s non-losing season streak. Let’s hope new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith is better back at his old position then as head coach.

 

 

All Steelers players should get a boost with Wilson’s presence. The Steelers were relying on their defense to also score touchdowns and that should be all you need to know about Kenny Pickett. Russell Wilson will likely be in the QB12 range again like he was in Denver.

The Denver Broncos are Letting Russ Cook Elsewhere
1 month ago

The Denver Broncos have informed former Superbowl winning QB Russell Wilson that he will be released next week.

The Denver Broncos have informed former Superbowl winning QB Russell Wilson that he will be released next week when the new new begins. Wilson’s contract might go down as one of the worst contracts in NFL history, the Broncos are now on the hook for $85 million over the next two seasons as a result of cutting him before his contract expired.

 

 

 

In 2 years with the Broncos, Wilson played 30 games, throwing for 6594 yards, 42 touchdowns, 19 interceptions, with a completion percentage of 63%.  Wilson will now be free to sign with whichever team he wants. The betting odds have the Steelers as the front runners to land Wilson, with Raiders and the Falcons also in the mix to  sign the former Superbowl winning quarterback

The Denver Broncos are Open to Bringing Back Russell Wilson to let him Cook for the 2024 Season.
2 months ago

Sean Payton and the Denver Broncos are keeping their options open and are open to bringing back Russell Wilson for the 2024 season.

Sean Payton and the Denver Broncos are keeping their options open and are open to bringing back Russell Wilson for the 2024 season. Not surprising, the Broncos are open to bringing him back, Wilson, whose 39 million dollar contract is fully guaranteed regardless of if he plays or not for the Broncos in 2024. The Broncos have been actively trying to move off of this contract ever since they chose to bench Wilson for the final 2 weeks of the 2023 regular season. 

 

 

 

The market will be telling after free agency and the NFL Draft, and if the Broncos can move on from Wilson via trade, they will no doubt do so. Alternatively, if no other NFL team has interest in Wilson and the massive price tag that comes along with his contract, the Broncos could look at approaching Wilson again about the possibility of him restructuring his deal to make it more team friendly. Currently, the Broncos have Russell Wilson and Jarrett Stidham under contract for the 2024 season. There are a lot of moving parts in Denver this offseason and the 2024 NFL draft will start to give us some clarity on where the Broncos see the future for them at the Quarterback position.

The Denver Broncos BENCH Russell Wilson
3 months ago

The Denver Broncos are benching Russell Wilson for the remainder of the 2023 season, and he is expected to be cut by the team in March.

Denver Broncos head coach Sean Payton announced on Wednesday that they are benching quarterback Russell Wilson for the remainder of the 2023 season. Russell Wilson is expected to be cut by the Broncos in March, as per league sources.  A move that will save the Broncos 37 million in injury guarantees in 2025 that vests in March 2024.

 

This isn’t a surprise move, as the Broncos have conceded 3 of their last 4 contests and are outside of the AFC wild card race. The Broncos will look at Jarrett Stidham to jump start this Broncos offense that has struggled to score points as of late, averaging a mere 20 points per game in their last 4.
