The blockbuster deal fills the quarterback hole that the Broncos were hoping to fix.
The 33-year-old has put up numbers over the course of his career that seemingly have him destined for a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Throughout his NFL career, Wilson has thrown for 37,059 yards and 292 touchdowns. During the 2021 season, Wilson threw for 3,113 yards and 25 touchdowns.
Wilson ironically helped the Seahawks beat the Broncos in the Super Bowl during the 2013 season. He then took them back to the Super Bowl the following year, but the team lost to the New England Patriots.
