The Broncos believe that they will be a contender in 2022 after securing the services of Wilson. It’s a huge statement of intent because he has been one of the most consistent quarterbacks in the NFL for a decade. But it remains to be seen if he can lead them to a deep playoff run.
He has a lot of expectations to live up to and anything less than this will be a failure. The Broncos gave up a lot because they want to win now and saw the difference a decent QB can make to a franchise. However, some people question if he can handle the pressure that will come if things start badly (via The Shadow League).
