NFL Insider Anticipates Russell Wilson’s Release from Broncos Soon

Russell Wilson’s tenure with the Denver Broncos has lingered through the 2024 offseason, but it appears that this saga is nearing its conclusion. According to Diana Russini, a respected insider from The Athletic, the Broncos are poised to part ways with Wilson imminently, likely cutting him from the roster in the upcoming days. The sentiment around the league suggests that Denver is swiftly moving towards severing ties with Wilson, with many speculating that the decision could come as early as next week.

Head coach Sean Payton hinted at an impending resolution during a media session, indicating that a decision regarding Wilson’s future with the Broncos would be made within the next two weeks. Now, there’s a growing belief across the league that Denver will waste no time in releasing Wilson once the NFL Scouting Combine concludes.

Wilson’s stint with the Broncos saw him amass 3,070 passing yards, 26 touchdowns, and eight interceptions during his second season with the team. Despite these numbers, ongoing tensions between Wilson and Payton, coupled with a lackluster 7-8 record with Wilson as the starter, have led Denver to conclude that parting ways is the best course of action.

As speculation mounts about Wilson’s next destination, recent betting odds favor the Pittsburgh Steelers as the frontrunners to acquire the former Super Bowl-winning quarterback. However, the landscape remains fluid, with other quarterback-needy teams such as the Las Vegas Raiders and Atlanta Falcons potentially entering the fray. With significant developments expected in the coming week, Wilson’s future in the Mile High City is poised to make headlines.
