The Denver Broncos were considered a candidate to acquire Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Packers re-signed Rodgers to a massive deal that is the largest in NFL history.

As a result, the Broncos had to go back to the drawing board to pursue a quarterback. The team has reached an agreement with the Seattle Seahawks to acquire Russell Wilson.

The deal cannot become official until the new league year next week. Right now, the teams agreed in principle to the deal before it becomes official.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Wilson will waive his no-trade clause to accept a trade to the Broncos. Denver is also adding a fourth-round draft pick in the deal.

The Seahawks are receiving a haul in the deal for Wilson, who may turn out to be a future Hall of Famer. Seattle adds quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, defensive end Shelby Harris, along with two first-round draft picks, two second-round draft picks, and a fifth-round draft pick.

Wilson will take over the Broncos’ starting quarterback role. The team has not had a good signal-caller since Peyton Manning was a viable option in the 2015 season.

The Broncos are hoping that this trade will catapult them into a Super Bowl contender. Last off-season, the Los Angeles Rams went all-in by forfeiting the future to acquire Matthew Stafford.

In February, the Rams won their second Super Bowl as they defeated the Cincinnati Bengals at SoFi Stadium.
