Russell Wilson Not Expected Back In Denver

Tuesday, February 20, 12:18 PM

What the Denver Broncos decide to do with quarterback Russell Wilson this offseason is one of the biggest storylines in the NFL. The Broncos can keep him in the fold for 2024, knowing the quarterback room will be awkward after they benched him for the final two games of the season. Virtually no one around the NFL expects Wilson to return, though, since it would lock in $37 million in 2025 guarantees. They could pay him $37 million of 2024 guarantees to go away, knowing offsets will be minimal with prospective teams leveraging Denver's guaranteed money against him. It will be tough to trade him. The money paid to Wilson handcuffs a team that is probably going to be forced to go cheap at QB, either with veteran Jarrett Stidham, another veteran or a draft pick.

Mike McCarthy Puts Faith In Dak Prescott

Thursday, January 18, 12:08 PM

Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy, who is being retained for the final year of his contract in 2024 despite another early playoff exit, has full confidence in quarterback Dak Prescott moving forward. "I believe in Dak Prescott," McCarthy said. The head coach also called Prescott "part of the solution moving forward." The 30-year-old signal-caller made his third Pro Bowl in 2023 and led the NFL in completions (410) and touchdown passes (36) during the regular season while throwing for 4,516 yards and only nine interceptions after leading the NFL with 15 picks in 2022. Playoff issues aside, Prescott was in the MVP conversation all year and has put himself in the high-end QB1 picture for fantasy drafts heading into the 2024 season.
