The former Broncos QB looks stoked for his new journey in Pittsburgh after years of experience in the NFL.

WilsoRussell n started his professional career with the Seattle Seahawks after the team selected him in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft. The former Wisconsin Badger had a promising rookie season, amassing 3,118 yards and 26 touchdowns and earning his first Pro Bowl honor.

He continued his stout production in the seasons that followed. However, 2014 was a special year.

The 2013-14 Seahawks finished the regular season with a 13-3 record and clinched the NFC’s No. 1 seed. Of course, Wilson was a large part of the team’s success. He threw for 3,357 yards and 26 TDs on the year.

His command of the offense helped Seattle win its first and only Super Bowl victory, a 43-8 blowout against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. Wilson’s success did not stop there. In addition to his rookie and sophomore season honors, he appeared in seven more Pro Bowls with the Seahawks.

Wilson spent a total of 10 seasons in Seattle with one of his best years occurring during his ninth season. The veteran QB totaled 4,212 yards and a career-high 40 TDs in 16 games. However, his production took a slight hit the following season, and by 2022, he parted ways with the team for Denver.

Things did not go as smoothly as planned when Wilson joined the Broncos. The team went 5-12 in his first year, failing to make the playoffs. He helped the team to an 8-9 improvement in 2023-24, but it still was not enough to get into the postseason.


Wilson became a free agent after his second year and chose to bring his talents to a well-established Steelers team.

Russell Wilson is coming off a year where he threw for 3,070 yards and 26 TDs in 15 games. He looks to get back to elite form with a Steelers roster full of promising pieces.

Most notably, Pittsburgh is returning rising third-year wide receiver George Pickens. The 23-year-old amassed 1,140 yards and 5 TDs on 6 receptions, the former of which ranked him 16th in the league. Pickens should be one of Wilson’s go-to targets in 2023-24.

In addition, Pittsburgh retains the services of rising fourth-year running back Najee Harris, who comes off a stellar year on the ground. Harris provides a reliable rushing attack and should take pressure off Wison’s passing game.

Moreover, the Steelers added tremendous backup help for Wilson. Pittsburgh traded for former Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields after Kenney Pickett left during the NFL free agency period.
