Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson is ready to silence his critics and prove his worth this upcoming NFL season, armed with “receipts.”

Wilson shared his determination to bounce back after a challenging debut season in the Mile High City, according to Chris Tomasson of the Denver Gazette.

“I think you’ve got them in your back pocket sometimes,” Wilson said about his “receipts,”

Wilson, who joined the Broncos in a blockbuster trade with the Seattle Seahawks in March 2022, followed by a record-breaking contract extension worth $245 million, faced a tumultuous first season in Denver, finishing with a career-low in passer rating and a 5-12 record.

The disappointing performance inevitably raised doubts about whether Wilson could live up to the massive expectations placed upon him.

“I’m used to some of those who believe and some of those who doubt,” Wilson stated. “When you’re playing at such a high level and striving to be the best every day, there will always be people questioning your abilities. I’ve proven throughout my career what I can do, and I’ve got to do it again.”

The 34-year-old quarterback had a very successful tenure in Seattle, including a Super Bowl victory and nine Pro Bowl selections. Wilson understands that this season is critical for his legacy.

Russell Wilson’s keeping “receipts” in his back pocket suggests that he is motivated by the criticism and doubts that have arisen after his subpar performance last year.
