The Denver Broncos recently acquired quarterback Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks via trade.

On the other hand, this trade sent the Seahawks into a mini rebuild mode, as they are a part of a very tough division.

The NFC West contains the likes of the Los Angeles Rams, Arizona Cardinals, the San Francisco 49ers, and Wilson’s former team, the Seahawks. Russell Wilson was able to leave that division behind him as he joined a team in the AFC. However, the best team in the NFC West, the Rams, will cross Wilson’s path once again.
