The Facts: Russell Wilson is bound for Denver, and arriving with him are Mile High aspirations and anticipation aplenty. The Broncos boast a talented young crop of receivers collectively grinning ear to ear at the prospect of Wilson's arrival, something confirmed by former Pro Bowler Sutton. "We're so excited," Sutton said of Denver agreeing to acquire Wilson in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks. "To be able to have Russ come in and, having the success that he's had, having the knowledge that he has, for us as young guys, all the young talent that we have, that's what we need. We need that guy that's gonna come in and be, you know, him, who he is, what he already brings to the table. We're excited."
Diehards Line: Sutton was a Pro Bowler and a 1,000-yard receiver in 2019 playing with the Broncos' parade of starting quarterbacks featuring Joe Flacco, Drew Lock and Brandon Allen. Thus, it's not hard to understand just how excited he is to welcome Wilson, a quarterback with nine Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl win on his resume. Sutton and fellow receivers Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick and K.J. Hamler have already been in communication and discussed preliminary plans on getting together for offseason workouts. The aforementioned receiving group is understandably amped to play with Wilson, but getting to know their new QB and building chemistry beforehand is paramount. "Getting a brand new quarterback, brand new offense, all the reps that we can get are going to be huge," Sutton said.
