It has almost been three months since the Seattle Seahawks traded QB Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos. The Broncos, on the other hand, have managed to build a strong offense by adding the Super Bowl-winning quarterback to their roster. Recently, another QB who is a free agent had come out and praised Wilson on his social media account.

Former Baltimore Ravens QB Robert Griffin III posted a tweet and wrote, “The [Broncos] will navigate a brutal AFC West and make the playoffs because [Russell Wilson] is ready to cook and won’t burn the food. Russ is trying to be the 3rd QB in a row to change teams and win a championship in year 1. Brady and Stafford did it. So why not Russ? Let’s Ride.”

Griffin thinks this year the Denver Broncos are the most preferred side to top the AFC West division. Broncos will enter the playoff this season as Russell Wilson is leading the reigns of the Broncos. 

Wilson already has experienced a Super Bowl win in 2014 with the Seattle Seahawks. Coincidentally, Seahawks defeated the Broncos in the match by 43-8 to win the Super Bowl. Wilson again made a Super Bowl appearance in 2015, but the Seahawks lost to New England Patriots by 24-28.
