Five things we learned about the Denver Broncos this offseason

2. Russell Wilson very much wanted Denver

There was a report a couple months ago that Russell Wilson was considering 14 teams that he potentially wanted to play for during his elaborate exist from Seattle after 10 seasons.

And, as it were, the Denver Broncos were at the top of that list.

Wilson’s side considered a plethora of factors when wanting to choose a new team, including roster, cap condition, fan base, among a few others.

It seemed like Wilson’s camp truly did an insanely deep dive into a bunch of teams to see which would be the best fit to help Russell himself continue to build his already Hall of Fame legacy.

For those in Broncos Country who kept calling on the team to “blow it up” during the 2016-2021 seasons, well, it’s good that they didn’t.

The drafting of John Elway/George Paton and the various free agency moves over the years apparently greatly attracted Wilson, as he obviously wanted to play for the Denver Broncos.

It was relatively well-known that the Broncos had a strong roster, but were indeed missing a viable quarterback.

Russell Wilson agreed with that statement apparently, as he now is set to embark on his second team in the NFL, and hopefully his last.
