When discussing Russell Wilson‘s desire to keep the important things the important things, the new head coach of the Denver Broncos, Sean Payton, didn’t hold back.
Wilson, according to Payton, is more focused with his off-field reputation than what is occurring on the field. “Why don’t you f—ing quit kissing all the babies?” Wilson was informed by Payton that he was not running for office. Given that Wilson is criticized for being unauthentic, this may not exactly be a fresh revelation.
Wilson’s last season was underwhelming to say the least
Wilson had one of his least productive seasons last year, which was his first year in Denver, and Payton’s tough reality check follows right on its heels.
Wilson’s passer rating (84.4), passing touchdowns (16), and completion percentage (60.5%) were all career lows for the quarterback. Wilson reportedly received a little too much latitude during his first year in Denver, which made issues worse.
According to a February article by The Athletic, Wilson was permitted to hire his own staff independent of the Broncos coaching staff. He was also granted an office and a workplace.
