Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson has made headlines for revealing an interesting workout plan he had during the team’s flight to London.
The Broncos will meet the Jacksonville Jaguars at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this Sunday in London, England. After a 2-1 start, the Broncos have lost their last four games — with three of them being decided by one possession.
Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Wilson stated that he exercised for four hours on the flight to London. While his teammates were sleeping, the nine-time Pro Bowler opted to perform high knees and stretches in the aisle.
Former NFL punter and popular sports commentator Pat McAfee couldn’t help but poke fun at Wilson’s high-knees exercise during his show (WARNING: Clips contain language that is NSFW).

This offseason, the Broncos acquired Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks in a blockbuster trade that saw Denver GM George Paton surrender a package that included two first-round picks, 2019 first-rounder and tight end Noah Fant, defensive lineman Shelby Harris and backup quarterback Drew Lock.
But Wilson and the Broncos haven’t gotten much of anything going on offense. Wilson has completed just 58.6 percent of pass attempts for 1,442 yards and five touchdowns against three interceptions.
Wilson was sidelined in the Broncos’ Week 7 home loss to the New York Jets, a 16-9 defeat. Denver has only topped 16 points once all season, and that was in a Week 4 road loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks sit atop the NFC West with a 4-3 record. That is due largely to the play of Geno Smith, Wilson’s former backup. Smith has completed 73.5 percent of his passes for 1,712 yards and 11 touchdowns against only three interceptions.
At 2-5, the Broncos’ playoff hopes already look dim. But a loss against the slumping Jaguars would practically put an end to any hope of ending a seven-year postseason drought.
