Russell Wilson Traded to the Denver Broncos

Russell Wilson has been traded to the Denver Broncos. A big day for NFL news continues as Rodgers signed a $200 million dollar extension with the Packers.

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback has been with the Seahawks since 2012 where he has started 158 regular season games for the franchise. He only has missed two games in his entire career due to a broken finger this past season, which has proved to be his last in Seattle.

This move significantly improves the Denver Broncos as the weak point of this team was their quarterback with Drew Lock who has never been better than average and Teddy Bridgewater who has had a nice, long career but was never above average either.

The Broncos have a solid roster to put around Wilson with some great wide receiver weapons as well as a young stud running back. Their defense was also one of the best in the league at times last year.

Wilson has won a Super Bowl and is a nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback. He will instantly make this team a Super Bowl contender.

Although, he is entering a tough division with the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, and Las Vegas Raiders who all had above average seasons last year. It also weakens the NFC West as Seattle likely will not be competitive next year.
