Jerry Jeudy defends Russell Wilson in recent Twitter posts
Russell Wilson has been under scrutiny in his first year playing for the Denver Broncos for his performances and uncharacteristic play. As a result, media members and fans have taken multiple shots of him as a player and person throughout this 2022 season.
Wilson, who received a contract extension before the season, has yet to play up to his standards, and he’ll be the first one to tell you that too. So while some criticism has been warranted due to his performances, most of them are not justified.
Many NFL pundits this year have commented on Wilson as a teammate and the negative connotation behind their remarks. Former players in Seattle have said stuff, along with other former players, and it has led the media to talk about the situation.
With all the negative chatter around the Broncos quarterback this season, WR Jerry Jeudy came out in his defense and backed his teammate up in a series of Twitter posts.
Jerry Jeudy backs up Russell Wilson and goes to bat for his quarterback on Twitter
Jeudy has been one of the best players for the Broncos this season and has changed the ridiculous narratives that were placed on him with his recent performances. One of the narratives is that he is not a “good teammate and is immature.”
That ridiculous narrative has been put to rest with all the other bad ones too.
Jeudy quote tweeted a post from Barstool Sports regarding Wilson’s office in the Broncos facility and “multiple parking spots.” As you can see above, Jeudy had enough of the “false statements.”
It has been the first time this year that a current player has talked about the negative comments surrounding Wilson and Jerry Jeudy voiced out his thoughts on his quarterback.
Broncos Country should be relieved to see a teammate, like Jeudy, defend Wilson after all the criticism he has received this year. There has been a lot of speculation about Wilson and how he is perceived in the locker room. It appears that Jeudy knows the truth.
It’s nice to see a teammate (especially a wide receiver) go to bat for his quarterback after a frustrating season. Media members have said a lot of things about Wilson, leading fans to believe what is being said. Finally, Jeudy took the initiative and set the record straight regarding the negative comments about his quarterback.
In all of this drama regarding Wilson (whether true or not), one takeaway from all of this is the maturation of Jeudy. He has been the only player (as of now) that has defended Wilson publicly, and that has to mean a lot to his quarterback.
He is slowly becoming a leader in the locker room and a voice that is being heard and respected. Against the Chiefs, Jeudy exploded on the sidelines in frustration due to the offense not playing well. After that, it ignited the offense to go on a run and make a comeback against the Chiefs.
