Russell Wilson has been one of the most consistent performers in the NFL over the last four seasons. He’s been a mainstay for Seattle Seahawks since joining them in 2012.
Before Mahomes, Wilson had the best quarterback contract in the NFL. Wilson was dominant in the league last year as well. Take a look at the recent touchdown highlight reel Wilson shared on his official Twitter handle.
The impressive touchdown highlight reel shows some of the most eye-catching plays from Wilson’s 2019 season. Russ threw for 4,000+ yards and boasted a 66.1 pass completion rate last year.
He rushed for 300+ yards and registered 30+ TDs as the Seahawks impressed last season. However, Wilson is being touted for an even better season in 2020 as he enters the second year of his multi-million dollar contract.
Russ Wilson had a magnificent rookie season in Seattle. In fact, he surpassed all expectations and proved his doubters wrong over the 2012 NFL season.
Being the last quarterback to be picked in that year’s draft, Wilson ended the season with a stellar display for the Seahawks. He was named the starting QB that year ahead of Matt Flynn and Tarvaris Jackson.
He even managed to make the Pro Bowl alternates team at the end of that year.
Since then Russ Wilson has established himself as an indispensable component at Seattle. He even helped the Seattle-based franchise to the NFL Super Bowl trophy in 2013.
The Seattle team has been built around Wilson over the last eight years. Russell is primed to challenge Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson for the NFL MVP award this year.
Sky Sports analyst Jeff Reinebold spoke highly of Russ Wilson in a recent interview. “I don’t think people realize how dynamic he is and what really a special player he is.
“That’s not to take anything at all from Lamar Jackson, because Lamar Jackson is unique. But Russell Wilson, you watch him play and watch what he can do.
“He has done it with an offensive line in front of him that is extremely average,” Reinebold said on Inside The Huddle.
