It is now being reported that Russel Wilson, the quarterback who won the 2013 Super Bowl with the Seattle Seahawks, is signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers this offseason. Wilson had been traded to Denver, where he was released after just his second season with the team.

Upon being traded to Denver, Wilson signed a massive five year contract extension, which does not begin until this NFL season. The Broncos will be on the hook for $39 Million that they have to pay Wilson this season just to walk away.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, who have been searching for a replacement for legendary quarterback Ben Roethlisberger following his retirement in 2022, appear to have landed their replacement. Kenny Pickett, drafted in the 2022 NFL draft at No. 20, has been a bit of a disappointment in his time playing for the Steelers.

Pittsburgh has maintained a winning record every season since Roethlisberger’s departure, but have been a much less impressive team that is far less consistent compared to Big Ben’s era with the team. There has been a glaring hole a quarterback since his retirement.

Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson is joining the Pittsburgh Steelers, he announced on Sunday night. 

Wilson had permission from the Denver Broncos to pursue his next NFL team prior to their official release of the 35-year-old quarterback when the new league year begins March 13. And the Steelers were among those he had visited already, spending over six hours with the team this past Friday. 

Wilson will sign a team-friendly deal with the Steelers for one year, ESPN reports.

Wilson, who failed to achieve team success with Denver, was not statistically horrible in 2023, throwing over 3000 yards, 26 touchdowns, and just 8 interceptions. The former Seahawk should be a remarkable improvement for Pittsburgh at the position.

The deal will be for just one year, and will most likely be a minimal contract, as Wilson will se $39 Million from the Broncos this year without playing a snap for the team.
