Quarterback Russell Willson, a Super Bowl XLVIII champion with the Seattle Seahawks, said Wednesday that he signed with the Denver Broncos because he wants to win three or four more NFL championships.
“My goal is to play, why not, another 10 or 12 years and in that time win three or four more Super Bowls; my goal is to finish my career here in Denver,” said the 33-year-old in his presentation with the Broncos for the 2022 season.
The nine-time Pro Bowler explained that the idea of leaving Seattle after a decade; in which he took them to two Super Bowls, he won in 2014 and lost in 2015; it was his.
“I initiated this change; I always thought that if I was going to promote it, it would be for a winning team and in that sense I can say that Denver is a winning team,” he reiterated.
The owner of jersey number three stressed that he was prepared to return the Broncos to the playoffs in the Western Division of the American Conference, where the other three teams that comprise it boast some of the best passers in the NFL.
“I’m ready. I want to play against the best and I’m not afraid of anything. I came here for one reason: to win.”
Coming off a 2021 season in which Denver ranked last in its division, Wilson’s arrival sets the Broncos ready to compete against their AFC West rivals.
The Kansas City Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes at the controls, who at 26 has already played a couple of Super Bowls, with a balance of one win and one loss.
The Los Angeles Chargers have 24-year-old rookie Justin Herbert, who in his second NFL season passed for 5,014 yards and 38 touchdowns; and Las Vegas Raiders have quarterback Derek Carr.
In the presentation of the passer was the general manager of the Denver Broncos, George Paton, who confessed that since the end of last season they had set themselves the goal of signing Russell Wilson.
“We had it clear from the beginning. We were going to do anything to catch Russell and here it is, now we have to be ready for this new challenge,” Paton said.
Denver Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett was also present at the news conference and shared his feelings about Wilson’s arrival.
“I didn’t even have to look at other options, I knew who we were talking about.”
