Russell Wilson is coming into a new season with everything on the line after he poured in the worst year of his career in 2022.
The 34-year-old quarterback showed up to OTAs looking lighter and everyone around has taken notice. While discussing Denver’s Frank Clark signing Thursday on The Pat McAfee Show, theScore’s Jordan Schultz claimed Wilson has lost a “significant” amount of weight.
Just last month, it wasn’t hard to see that Wilson was looking slimmer.
“I feel great,” Wilson said, per Mike Klis of 9News, without specifying how much weight he lost. “I feel lean and mean ready to go. And focused.”
Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos had the year few thought was possible in 2022 in the worst way. Wilson was less mobile in 2022 than in the first decade of his career. He set a new career high in sacks and finished with his third-worst rushing season by yards and yards per carry.
He set new career lows in a handful of stats, including completion percentage, passer rating, and touchdown-to-interception ratio.
Now, Sean Payton is the head coach and bringing his offense which he ran for 15 years as head coach of the Saints.
The nine-time Pro Bowler needs to show he can command the offense because he might see himself being benched for bad play.
