• Nathaniel Hackett says that their schemes will depend on Russell Wilson
  • Seattle Seahawks trades Wilson for Drew Lock and multiple picks that include the ninth-overall pick in the 2022 draft
  • Wilson has a golden opportunity to prove that he can succeed if given the right tools around him

Nine-time Pro Bowler Russell Wilson is no longer a Seattle Seahawk, and the reason for his departure could be because he had no voice within the franchise.

According to Denver Broncos correspondent for 9News Mike Klis, he will not have this problem with the Denver Broncos as per Nathaniel Hackett.

“Once [we] get to know him, understand him, we’ll build it around him. So, what is it going to be like? It’s going to be what Russell (Wilson) likes to do,” Hackett said about how the Broncos' offense would look like with Wilson at the helm.

Earlier this month, the NFL saw the Broncos put their eggs in the Wilson basket as they traded away quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant and defensive lineman Shelby Harris, plus multiple picks which included their no. 9 overall pick in the upcoming draft.

It is a massive gamble on the Broncos’ part since Wilson is already 33 years old and his last season with the Seahawks saw him put up the lowest passing yards in a season since he first entered the league at just 3,113 with 25 touchdowns.

Wilson’s biggest skillset hinges on his athleticism to be a true dual-threat quarterback, but his lack of height certainly has affected his accuracy in throwing the ball in the short to the medium passing game.

This is where second-year running back Javonte Williams comes in.

Pairing him up with Williams gives Wilson the freedom to go with more play-action calls to throw up go-and-get-it balls to their speedy wide receivers or give it to Williams and see him break through the gaps for some big yardage.

Only time will tell whether the Broncos won the trade but at the same time, it is a great opportunity for Wilson to prove that he is still capable of being an elite quarterback in the NFL.

The Super Bowl-winning quarterback will be entering the new season with a chip on his shoulder to prove that it was his play under center that created most of the success in Seattle.
