Russell Wilson showed up to Denver Broncos training camp on Tuesday and everybody took notice of him because he got out of a ridiculously larget truck. Not only that, the Broncvos QB was also sporting his own jersey.
With two years and $51 million remaining on his current contract, Wilson clearly does not care about the gas prices with a truck that size.
Wilson was asked about how much thought he’s given to a contract, with Kyler Murray inking a big long-term extension and Lamar Jackson in line for a new deal, Wilson said he’s not concerned.
“I don’t really worry about those guys and what they’re doing,” Wilson. “Awesome for them. Obviously Kyler, great for him. Obviously, Lamar and his situation. But it has nothing, really, to do with me. I’m excited to be here. I know that. I know I want to be here for a long, long time, hopefully, the rest of my career. And just, it’s been a blessing just to be here with these guys. To be here with (general manager) George Paton, he’s been amazing to me. Coach (Nathaniel) Hackett, first class, unbelievable mind, unbelievable way how he leads this football team and the rest of the coaching staff, the players, the organization. This is a tremendous honor. Every day I look at it as treating every day as a new day and treating every day as just going into it. That’s my focus. My sole focus is winning a Super Bowl for the Denver Broncos.”
Wilson inked a four-year extension with the Seahawks in 2019, which paid him an annual figure of $35 million.
The 33-year-old Ohio native completed 64.8 percent of his throws for 3,113 yards with 25 touchdowns and six interceptions across 14 appearances.
