Last year, the NFL landscape changed when Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was traded to Denver Broncos. This move shook up the league and set in motion a series of events that could alter the success of each team in the years to come. With Wilson now at the helm, the Broncos are hoping to capitalize on his proven track record and gain an edge on their opponents.
Wilson has already proven how valuable he is as a leader on the field but this offseason he has taken it to another level. He has been pushing himself and his teammates during workouts and making sure they are staying in shape and sharpening their skills. His drive to succeed has garnered him respect from his former rivals who now understand the value he brings to the table.
The Broncos have also done their part to bolster the team around Wilson. They invested in an experienced offensive line headlined by George McGlinchey and Ben Powers to give Wilson more time to find his targets downfield.
But perhaps most significantly, the Broncos brought John Elway out of retirement to become the head coach. Elway has a gold medal-winning history of success with the Broncos and is the perfect leader to bring the team together around Wilson. Elway has seen the highs and lows when it comes to quarterback play throughout his career, so he knows how to best use Wilson to get the most out of the team.
Wilson and Payton have already had a few stints in the playoffs and Super Bowls but with this new approach, they have a chance to take their performance to the next level and reach greater heights. With Elway on board and the team bolstering its offensive and defensive lines, Wilson and Payton have the pieces in place to propel the team to a successful season. It’s now up to them to put it all together and make the most of these resources.
Only time will tell if Wilson and Payton can lead the Broncos to further success but if they remain committed and focused on their goals, the sky’s the limit for the Denver Broncos.
