9News’ Mike Klis posted that the Denver Broncos will now pursue Russell Wilson after Aaron Rodgers re-signed with the Packers.
Although Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll recently stated that the team has no intentions to deal Wilson, the Broncos are still lurking for an established QB.
The 33-year-old posted a 6-8 QB record in 2021, throwing for a career-low 3,113 yards, and also threw for 25 touchdowns and a low six interceptions.
Denver has plenty of cap space heading into the 2022 offseason, and they’ve also hired former Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as their new head coach in February.
Wilson carries a salary cap hit of $37,000,000 heading into the 2022 season from his four-year, $140,000,000 contract he signed in April of 2019.
The Denver Broncos have acquired Russell Wilson and a fourth-round draft pick from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for QB Drew Lock, TE Noah Fant, DT Shelby Harris, two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and a fifth-round pick.
Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy seems happy with the move.
