The NFL never stops producing headlines. Not long after news broke about back-to-back NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers returning to the Green Bay Packers for 2022, the Denver Broncos quickly struck a deal to acquire nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson.
The Broncos traded two first-round picks, two second-round picks, a fifth-round pick, quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, and defensive lineman Shelby Harris for Wilson and a fourth-round pick. In total, the Seattle Seahawks received little more than what the Detroit Lions were able to snag for Matthew Stafford last year.
Denver’s aggressive trade will have major ramifications across the NFL. We’ll break down the winners and the losers of the deal. Some are obvious, but others will be left dealing with the fallout from such a historic day.
