Russell Wilson reveals offseason work with former Super Bowl rival
Russell Wilson is now a member of the Denver Broncos. It’s still a weird phrase to say, but that’s the way it is. The former Seattle Seahawks quarterback was traded to Mile High City this offseason in one of the first successful trades of the offseason. Now, the former Super Bowl MVP is looking to bring another ring to town.
True to form, Wilson is already locked and loaded for next season. He also enlisted the help of a former Super Bowl rival and Broncos legend. Russell Wilson on Twitter posted a video of him and “The Sheriff” Peyton Manning breaking down the film. Talk about a crazy collaboration!

Manning and Wilson were two of the best quarterbacks of the 2000s and 2010s. Despite competing in different conferences, the two teams have faced off in epic duels over the years. Most notably, the Wilson Seahawks beat the Manning Broncos in 2013 for the former’s first Super Bowl ring. Now the two will work together to bring the Lombardi back to Mile High City.
Wilson’s arrival in Denver was part of a large-scale power shift in the AFC. The AFC West, in particular, became an arms race as all teams loaded up in the draft and free agency. Wilson and the Broncos have their work cut out for them next season.
Luckily for them, they have a great leader to help them through the season. Manning working with Wilson will surely bring great things to the city of Denver.
