After a brutal 2022 season, there were a lot of things that the Denver Broncos went into the offseason knowing they needed to fix.

The team’s offense was a mess last season, but the team is hoping that a new coaching staff can turn things around for them.

Before they can get started on that, it looks like Russell Wilson had something he needed to get addressed first.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Wilson underwent athroscopic surgery on his right knee to fix an issue that he had been dealing with for a few seasons.

Whatever issue Russell Wilson had been dealing with in that knee, it had never caused hi moo miss an NFL game.

He has already returned to working out and throwing following the procedure.

Now that he has had the knee taken care of, Wilson can shift his focus to figuring out how to succeed as the quarterback of the Denver Broncos.

During his first year with the Broncos, Wilson threw for 3524 yards and 16 touchdowns while being intercepted 11 times. He had the lowest completion percentage of his career and set a career low in air yards per attempt.

The nagging knee issue could have been a contributing factor in the dip in performance Wilson experienced in his first year with the new team.

Hopefully getting it taken care of will help him return to the form we consistently saw from him with the Seahawks.

The Broncos will need to see that version of Russ if the massive trade they made for him is going to pay off.
