3. Russell Wilson

Man, I love Russell Wilson.  Wilson has been among the very best quarterbacks in the league for years now, and he is only getting better.

Last year, he set a career-high in touchdown passes, throwing for 40, and he hasn’t thrown less than 31 in a season since 2016.

Russell Wilson also takes insane care of his body, investing up to $1 million a year to keep it fresh.  He’s never missed a start and has never had a losing record.

He’s the epitome of greatness and is already a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Moreover, he’s still young in quarterback terms.  He’ll be 33 in November and could realistically play for another 10 years–just look at Tom Brady.

Wilson hasn’t thrown more than 13 interceptions in a season and has had 5 seasons throwing single-digit picks.

He’s thrown four 4,000 yard seasons and completes 65% of his passes.

The only con I can genuinely think of is how much it would cost to acquire him.

It would surely cost more than it would to acquire Aaron Rodgers, although Seattle may be willing to come down on the price a smidge since Denver is out of conference.

Either way, if Seattle and Russ are heading toward a breakup, the Denver Broncos need to be on the phone yesterday to make a deal.

I would rather have Russell Wilson than Aaron Rodgers if I had to pick between the two.
