Broncos Acquire QB Russell Wilson From Seahawks for 3 Players & 5 Draft Picks in NFL Blockbuster

Moments after Rodgers’ contract extension with the Packers, which took the Broncos’ pursuit of him off the table, Denver swung one of the biggest trades in NFL history by acquiring Russell Wilson from the Seahawks. In exchange for the Super Bowl-winning QB, Seattle received three players and five draft picks. The players included QB Drew Lock, TE Noah Fant and DL Shelby Harris, while the picks included two first-rounders, two second-rounders and one fifth-round selection. Wilson’s 10-year run in Seattle comes to an end pending his approval to waive the no-trade clause, and the nine-time Pro Bowler joins a Denver team with 11 different starting QBs since Peyton Manning retired in 2016 — the most in the NFL.
