Top 3 Potential destinations for Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson will be leaving the Denver Broncos, and we look at three possible destinations for the former Super Bowl winner in 2024.

Denver's Russell Wilson never seemed quite right. It always felt like Aaron Rodgers was simply his sloppy seconds since most people assumed they were going to pursue him to team him with Nathaniel Hackett again. He never appeared to be their first choice.

In retrospect, Wilson was sent by the Denver Broncos to a horrible team. It takes place. In this profession, teams must take chances, and most general managers would gladly have a second chance at least once in their careers.

#3. Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons ought to throw everything on Justin Fields, but that's not something this team does very often. Additionally, there's no real assurance that they will succeed in obtaining Fields, even if they seek it. In that case, the reliable Russell will be the best insurance option available.

Though he's no longer as nimble as he once was, he still makes far better decisions than Taylor Heinicke and Desmond Ridder combined. Given the opportunity to play with a top wide receiver like Drake London and a top running back like Bijan Robinson, who has excelled in run-heavy designs, he might be able to hang onto his position long enough to find a long-term answer.

#2. New England Patriots

The whole New England Patriots organization is in disarray. This cannot be minimized, and they require far more than a quarterback. It's likely that they will require a head coach and general manager in addition to Bill Belichick after they go.

However, no squad, especially one as flawed as the one Belichick assembled, can be corrected in a single night. In order to give Wilson another shot as they search for their future gunslinger, Robert Kraft may feel compelled to do so since Patriots supporters are accustomed to winning and having a great quarterback.

#1. Las Vegas Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders are the last team on our list. There is no greater way to get even with the Denver Broncos than defeating them twice in a season, and they are the only divisional opponent that will be looking to add a quarterback in the summer.

Although the Raiders still have a lot to learn, we have to think that they can succeed with Russell Wilson leading the way in this incarnation of the position if they can win games with Jimmy Garoppolo and Aidan O'Connell at quarterback.
