Can Russell Wilson save the Denver Broncos in 2022?

For the first time in what feels like forever, Russell Wilson couldn’t carry the Seattle Seahawks to the playoffs.

They just lost to the Nick Foles-led Bears…at home.

Wilson hasn’t had his best season in 2021, which also marked the end of his streak of games started, which began obviously in his rookie season.

Wilson has had a remarkable NFL career up to this point and is showing no signs of really slowing down other than a disgusting finger injury that cost him a few games this year.

The turmoil between Wilson and the Seahawks has led to not one but two different lists leaked by NFL reporters regarding which teams Wilson would like to potentially be traded to. The latest list included three teams — the New York Giants, the New Orleans Saints, and the Denver Broncos.

Considering the coaching situation being in limbo at this point, it stands to reason that the Broncos could work through third parties to hire a coach of Wilson’s liking and try to lure him that way, of course along with their talented roster and enviable skill position players.

Wilson would thrive in Denver with the weapons at his disposal and the defense behind him.

As I said, although the Seahawks have had some great teams in Wilson’s career, Wilson has more than done his part in terms of carrying this team through the years as well, and he just simply couldn’t do it in 2021.

It feels like things have really broken down in Seattle and wholesale changes could be coming. Will Wilson be part of that?

If he’s no longer in the Seahawks’ future plans, perhaps he will be in the Broncos’ future plans.

Wilson on the Denver Broncos’ roster would make this team instant Super Bowl favorites in the AFC.
