Before the 2022 NFL season got underway, the Denver Broncos finally addressed the quarterback position by making a blockbuster trade with the Seattle Seahawks for superstar Russell Wilson.
The move to bring in Wilson was considered a game-changer for the struggling Broncos, who already had a talented receiving corps and a formidable defense.
Unfortunately, the 2022 campaign turned out to be a disaster, with Wilson looking like he lost a step or two from his best years with the Seahawks and the coaching being about as bad as it can be in the NFL.
Although it’s been nothing but doom and gloom in Denver after a disappointing end to the 2022 campaign, the Broncos still have faith in Wilson, and so does his former teammate Melvin Gordon, who told Jim Rome that he believes the quarterback can still play at an MVP level.

At this point, there’s no telling how much Wilson has left in the tank, as last season, he seemed like a completely different player on the downside of his Hall-of-Fame-caliber career in the NFL.
However, Wilson will have the advantage of having a Super Bowl winner calling the shots on the sideline during the 2023 campaign, with the Broncos bringing in head coach Sean Payton to right the ship.
If Payton can figure out have to stir the Broncos back in the right direction, Wilson may have another shot of turning things around before the team starts considering moving on from the one-time Super Bowl champion, as that could be a likely outcome if he has another lackluster season.NEXT: Broncos Defender Expresses His Belief In New Coach Sean Payton
