Broncos coach makes clear statement about Russell Wilson’s role

If Russell Wilson was unhappy with his involvement in the Seattle Seahawks’ offense, he should be quite happy with the early signals he is hearing from the Denver Broncos.

Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett sent a clear message to Wilson on Sunday. Hackett said the Denver offense would be tailored around Wilson, and that the team’s strategy would be to do “what Russell likes to do.”

This should be music to Wilson’s ears. There was widespread speculation that the veteran quarterback was frustrated within the Seattle offense. In fact, one ex-teammate seemed to sum up Wilson’s frustrations quite nicely.

Will an offense tailored directly to Wilson help him improve? That remains to be seen. He is certainly likely to be a lot happier in that environment, though.
