Broncos Inform Russell Wilson Of Release

Monday, March 4, 4:29 PM

The Denver Broncos have informed veteran quarterback Russell Wilson of his release ahead of free agency. He will be officially let go on March 13 when the new league year begins. After being traded from the Seattle Seahawks to Denver in exchange for quarterback Drew Lock, defensive tackle Shelby Harris, tight end Noah Fant, and four draft picks, Wilson signed a five-year $242.5 million deal with the Broncos. Just under two years later, the organization is heading in a different direction at quarterback. Wilson threw for 6,594 yards, 42 touchdowns, and 19 interceptions and posted an 11-19 record as the Broncos' QB. He will now be available for a team seeking a veteran starter. The move leaves the franchise with an NFL record $85 million in dead money.

C.J. Stroud Struggles In Divisional Round Loss

Saturday, January 20, 11:43 PM

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud struggled on the road in the team's 34-10 Divisional Round loss against the Baltimore Ravens. Stroud was not particularly efficient on Saturday, completing 19-of-33 passes for just 175 yards. The Ravens held the rookie in check, which resulted in him throwing zero touchdowns in a game for the fourth time this season. After a successful rookie campaign, Stroud's season will officially end. However, he has emerged as a top fantasy quarterback option and should be drafted pretty early in Superflex formats next season.
