It’s been two weeks since one of the biggest stories of the NFL offseason thus far hit the AFC West when the Denver Broncos sent a huge package of players and draft picks to the Seattle Seahawks for star quarterback Russell Wilson.

The entire league can’t wait to see how this division plays out in 2022. It’s simply going to be wild with the outrageous quarterback talent at the forefront.
