Russell Wilson had one of the NFL’s best wide receiver groups on the Seahawks, led by D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
He has since been traded to the Denver Broncos and now has Jerry Jeudy, who was the team’s first-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft. Jeudy came into the league with a lot of hype, but so far his production has been underwhelming, but that can be blamed on the team not having a good QB.
In two seasons, he’s totaled 90 catches, 1,323 yards and three touchdowns.
Since the deal was made official, Wilson has been busy building his chemistry with his new receivers. Late last night he posted this video of him throwing to Jeudy.
That footage was more than enough for Broncos fans to go crazy on social media about this connection:
Jeudy was limited to 10 games in 2021 after suffering a high ankle sprain, and spending his first two NFL seasons in an offense quarterbacked by Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Locke didn’t help the receiver’s production.
The 33-year-old Wilson battled a finger injury in 2021, but he still put together very efficient numbers in 14 games as a passer: 25 touchdowns, six interceptions, and 103.05 passer rating.
