Broncos coach makes clear statement on Russell Wilson’s role

If Russell Wilson wasn’t happy with his involvement in the Seattle Seahawks offense, he should be pretty happy with the first signals he’s hearing from the Denver Broncos.

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

That should be music to Wilson’s ears. There was plenty of speculation that the veteran quarterback was frustrated in Seattle’s offense. In fact, a former teammate seemed to sum up Wilson’s frustrations pretty well.

Will an attack tailored directly to Wilson help him improve? That remains to be seen. He’s certainly likely to be much happier in this environment, though.
