The past two seasons have been a rollercoaster ride for the 9X Pro Bowler. After reigning hearts as a part of the Seahawks, things seemed the opposite of what happened with the Broncos. Wilson appeared to share his emotional breakdown this NFL season in his recent post on X. The post reads, “God’s got me. Looking forward to what’s next.”

The pro quarterback, Wilson, has been benched for the last two games. The head coach, Payton, has added Jarret Stidham to the roster to improve the team’s performance in the upcoming game. Payton seems to have complete faith in him and looks forward to watching him play. In an interview, Payton expressed his eagerness to see Stidham perform, as he has an impressive track record. In his previous seasons, Jarett threw 365 yards and three touchdowns during his time with the Las Vegas Raiders, which is a decent stat from a starter. Moreover, Payton saw potential in Stidham’s previous preseason practices with the Broncos.
