Denver Broncos Bench Russell Wilson for Season’s Final Games to Mitigate Financial Risks: Jarrett Stidham Takes Helm

In a significant move, the Denver Broncos are benching quarterback Russell Wilson for their remaining two games of this season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Broncos are not just looking towards the gridiron but also focusing on financial concerns. Wilson’s five-year, exceptionally lucrative contract, valued at $242.6 million signed in 2022, carries a hefty potential salary cap obligation if he isn’t the frontline quarterback in 2024.

To preemptively avoid the risk of a $37 million injury clause from becoming active in Wilson’s contract, the decision was made to keep him off the field. Subsequently, Jarrett Stidham has been chosen to start the final games of the season.

Broncos’ coach Sean Payton has affirmed that whereas Stidham will kick off Sunday’s game against the Chargers, Wilson will serve as the backup. This decision appears to be a significant indication that Russell Wilson’s tenure as a Denver Broncos quarterback might be heading towards its conclusion. Wilson will be on the bench at the upcoming contest against the Los Angeles Chargers at Empower Field at Mile High on Sunday.

Preserving financial flexibility appears to be paramount for the team as they chart their course for future seasons. As such, this change demonstrates the careful strategy and financial consideration teams must navigate in building their rosters in the National Football League.
