A major domino falls in the NFL free agency market as former Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson agreed to a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.



The reported deal will be for a league minimum salary as Wilson will be owed $38 million by the Broncos after releasing him in February.



The Steelers add a proven veteran to their quarterback room after finishing 10-7 with a loss in the Wild Card round in 2023 as former first-round pick Kenny Pickett and Mason Rudolph split snaps under center.


Wilson, known for his Super Bowl victory and nine Pro Bowl appearances during his 10-year tenure with the Seattle Seahawks, struggled during his two years with the Broncos.


The Broncos won a combined 11 games over two seasons with Wilson at quarterback after signing him to a five-year, 245 million-dollar contract extension in 2022.


Wilson, 35, will get his chance at a career revival surrounded by a Steelers offense with Najee Harris, George Pickens, and Pat Freiermuth as the lead playmakers in the Mike Tomlin-led offense.


If Wilson can win the starting quarterback job, the Steelers are scheduled to play the Broncos during the 2024 season in what could be a potential revenge game.
