Russell Wilson is working to be the best version of himself… and man, you can tell! The Denver Broncos‘ quarterback attended a press conference this Thursday and surprised locals and strangers with his great physical change. Although he didn’t say how much weight he has lost in the recent months, it’s very evident that he’s been really busy in the gym.
“I want to have the best offseason of my life,” Wilson said to the media. After the first OTA practice, and looking ahead to the next NFL season, Denver Broncos‘ quarterback said that everyone on the team is committed to give their best during 2023. “I want to be the best version of me and I’m looking forward to the work of it all and doing that. We had a great day today. Guys are really working, focused…”, he shared.
On March 16, 2022, Broncos hired Russell Wilson as their new quarterback following a trade with Seattle Seahawks, in which they gave up two first-round picks, two second-round picks, a fifth-round pick, QB Drew Lock, defensive lineman Shelby Harris, and TE Noah Fant… Here’s the video of the day of his presentation.
If we compare the previous video with the one from the press conference this Thursday, we will notice remarkable changes and that he has lost several pounds due to an intense workout.
Denver, for revenge in 2023
Last season, the Broncos finished last in the AFC West with a 5-12 record, causing a major disappointment to all the fans who expected to see the team fight to return to the Super Bowl, which they haven’t reached since 2016, when they defeated Carolina Panthers 24-10.
That’s why, now with a highly competitive division, Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos know they need to be in great shape to be able to aspire to the championship. It will not be easy: they share division with the Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert’s Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders, who will now be with Jimmy Garoppolo as starting quarterback… But now, with a few pounds less, more workout and a more committed team, Russell Wilson hopes Denver can be up to the challenge.
In the first game of season 2023, Broncos will be facing Raiders at Mile High on September 10th.
