With Sean Payton now officially heading to Denver, the biggest question revolving around his first season with the Broncos is whether he'll be able to fix Russell Wilson.
The former Seahawks quarterback was traded to Denver in a blockbuster deal during the 2022 offseason, and although Denver had high hopes for its new franchise quarterback, Wilson didn't come close to living up to those hopes.
During the 2022 season, Wilson ranked 31st in completion percentage (60%) and 27th in passer rating (84.4) for a Broncos offense that ranked dead last in the league in scoring.
If Payton can figure out how to get Wilson back on the right track, the Broncos could be in for a fast turnaround. Payton was asked about Wilson on Tuesday and said his plan is to try and take some pressure off his new quarterback so that he doesn't feel like he has to do everything.
"A hard worker and has played at a high level and won a lot of games," Payton said of Wilson, via NOLA.com. "The pressure is on us to put a good run game together and reduce the degree of difficulty on his position. I'm excited about him."
