Denver Broncos cut quarterback Russell Wilson in the NFL

The Denver Broncos have shocked the NFL world by announcing that quarterback Russell Wilson will not be continuing with the team. In a post on their social media networks, the team revealed that Wilson will be cut when the next season begins.

Wilson, who joined the Broncos in 2022 after being acquired from the Seattle Seahawks in a blockbuster trade, expressed his gratitude to the Denver community in a statement. “For the past two years, you have welcomed my family and me with open arms and embraced us as members of the Denver community,” Wilson said.

Despite owing Wilson $39 million in salary before his departure, the Broncos will avoid guaranteeing $37 million in salary as a result of cutting him. Wilson had signed a lucrative five-year contract extension worth $245 million last August.

“This place will always have a special place in my heart… Tough times don’t last, but tough people do. God has me. I’m excited for what’s coming,” Wilson added.

During his time with the Broncos, Wilson’s performance was erratic. In his first season, he went 4-11 with 16 touchdowns and 13 turnovers in 15 starts. Last year, he achieved a 7-8 record but was benched for the team’s final two games. In total, Wilson accumulated 6,594 passing yards, 42 touchdowns, and 19 interceptions during his tenure with the team.

The decision to part ways with Wilson comes after the Broncos made a significant investment to acquire him, giving up two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and several players in the trade with the Seahawks.
