Broncos end Russell Wilson era, say they will release veteran QB

Mar 4, 2024

Years will pass and it will be impossible to remember how excited Denver Broncos fans were for the Russell Wilson era.

In March of 2022, the Broncos traded a haul to the Seattle Seahawks for Wilson. The price didn't matter at that time. The Broncos were getting a nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback and finally ending a long stretch of horrendous play at the position. At least that's how it was supposed to turn out.

The Wilson trade and subsequent contract extension will go down as one of the most ruinous in NFL history. On Monday, the Broncos put an end to the Wilson era after two seasons, announcing his release with a statement from general manager George Paton and head coach Sean Payton.
