Wilson had a nightmare season in 2022 after he joined the Broncos following a trade from the Seattle Seahawks. The long-serving Seahawks quarterback joined Denver in a blockbuster trade that excited Mile High City. Their fanbase believed that his addition would propel them into the Super Bowl conversation (via The Ringer).
However, Wilson had the worst year of his career and struggled to settle in as Denver’s starter. He was awful but he also became one of the league’s biggest scapegoats. That’s because Broncos GM George Paton decided that rookie head coach Nathaniel Hackett was the man to lead the franchise. Hackett failed miserably and the franchise fell into dysfunction.
