March 8, 2022 will be a day to remember for Denver Broncos fans as things went from horrible to surprisingly exciting in the span of just a couple of hours.

The bad news came early in the day when it was reported that Aaron Rodgers had signed a ginormous new contract to stay in Green Bay with the Packers. With Rodgers being heavily linked to Denver, it wasn’t exactly the best news for the Bronco faithful.

Then, just hours after missing out on Rodgers, a report from Adam Schefter nearly broke NFL Twitter with news that the Broncos had agreed on a trade to acquire Russell Wilson.

Seattle is reportedly sending Wilson and a fourth-round pick to Denver in exchange for Drew Lock, Noah Fant, Shelby Harris, two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and a fifth-round pick.

According to Schefter, Wilson was Denver’s target all along. Broncos general manager George Paton stated that the Rodgers decision had nothing to do with the Broncos’ move to trade for Wilson. Trade talks between Denver and Seattle began at least two weeks ago.
