ESPN’s Adam Schefter said the deal is awaiting approval from Wilson as well as the facilities.
“The trade gives Denver the quarterback they’ve been looking for since Peyton Manning’s retirement and it gives Seattle a platform to rebuild without the quarterback that led the Seahawks to the Super title- Their only bowl,” Schefter said in a tweet.
News also broke on Tuesday that midfielder Aaron Rodgers will stay with the Green Bay Packers in a four-year, $200 million deal. Schefter reports that the decision to trade Wilson is irrelevant and that trade talks began at least two weeks ago.
According to NFL NetworkBroncos quarterback Drew Lock and trailblazer Shelby Harris will head to the Seahawks as part of the deal.
Broncos players have begun blasting Twitter with reactions – one that came from Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy that the group is now “lighted up.”
Wilson was drafted by the Seahawks in the third round, placing 75th overall in 2012. He led the Seahawks to a Super Bowl win over the Broncos in 2014.
