Russell Wilson: A New Bronco with a Vision

Considering their packed division, Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos should be able to be competitive in the AFC. The 33-year-old will have much more offensive clout than he had with the Seattle Seahawks, effectively allowing the new collaboration to thrive. The broncos are now decked out with some armaments like Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, and Tim Patrick, as well as RB Javonte Williams.

The QB1 had a slightly disappointing run in 2021, having a QB record of 6-8-0. He also recorded a 64.4 pass completion percentage, 3113 yards, and 25 pass TDs, the lowest in his career.
