Insider predicts Russell Wilson will be ‘long shot’ starting QB for Saints, Eagles
The Denver Broncos made one of the biggest splashes of a frenzied NFL offseason when they acquired nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson in a March blockbuster with the Seattle Seahawks. . Wilson has made it clear he wants to play in Denver for “a very long time,” but the fact remains that as of Friday he’s only signed for the 2023 season.
ESPN insider Dan Graziano released his “2023 NFL quarterback market predictions” on Friday morning, as he made some bold guesses about which flaggers will start for 17 of the 32 teams in the league. league. Two of the groups he analyzed were the New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles.
While Graziano said the “likeliest outcome” for the Saints and Eagles regarding who starts under center next year is their current starters, Wilson’s name has been offered as a possibility for New Orleans and Philadelphia.
“Winston is back as a starter after an injury-shortened 2021 season, and at 28, he hopes to write a brilliant second chapter of his career in New Orleans. It could absolutely happen if he stays healthy. “, writes Graziano. “The Saints appear to have a solid team around him, with a championship-caliber defense and the likely return of former No. 1 wide receiver Michael Thomas to help him. But there’s no more guaranteed money on Winston’s contract after 2022, and all options are open for him and the Saints (who tried to get Deshaun Watson before going to Cleveland and only went back to Winston once, it didn’t worked).”
