Broncos Make Decision On Russell Wilson's Contract

The Denver Broncos are serious competitors. Russell Wilson, the team's standout quarterback, signed a five-year contract extension on Thursday.

Wilson will receive a five-year, $245 million extension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. $165 million in this agreement is guaranteed.

Wilson will be bound to Denver for a total of seven years, according to Schefter. Over that time, he will earn almost $300 million.

This year, Wilson was dealt to the Broncos for a large number of other players and draught picks.

The Denver front management did everything in its power to get Wilson once he became available via trade.

Wilson has been remarkably steady since joining the NFL in 2012. 292 touchdowns and 37,059 yards have been thrown for by him.

Wilson will be under a lot of pressure to lead the Broncos to the playoffs this season, especially after seeing how much money the team just gave him.
