It's no secret that Denver Broncos fans have been highly anticipating Russell Wilson's debut ever since the former NFL MVP was acquired from the Seattle Seahawks last month.
Broncos fans finally got a glimpse of Wilson in orange on Monday when the Broncos held the first day of their voluntary minicamp ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft. It may not be a real game situation, but there's no doubting that Wilson looks at home in his new threads.
Here's a brief video of Wilson make his practice entrance from the Broncos' Twitter page.
Wilson hasn't wasted any time proving that he's all-in when it comes to the Broncos team, community and fanbase. He supported the Denver Nuggets over the weekend in Game 4 of their series against the Golden State Warriors and even threw out the Opening Day pitch to begin the Colorado Rockies' 2022 campaign.
The Broncos' quarterback position has been a mess ever since Peyton Manning retired following the 2015 season. They've had 11 different starting QBs since then, so the hope is that Wilson will bring some much-needed stability to the position.
He may no longer be in his prime, but Wilson is still a top-10 quarterback in today's NFL. Since 2019, Wilson ranks 10th in completions (984), 11th in passing yards (11,435) and fourth in passing touchdowns (96). Needless to say, that's a pretty big improvement over Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater.
The Broncos' Super Bowl LVII odds certainly reflect the impact that Wilson could have on the team this year. FanDuel Sportsbook has them listed as having +1600 odds (T-No. 6) to go on a championship run next season.
