Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson says his sole focus is winning amid chatter about a contract extension.
Russell Wilson has a deal until 2023 from his time at the Seattle Seahawks. Denver didn’t extend him at the time of the trade, but it’s only a matter of time.
Whenever Russell Wilson does extend, he’s going to get paid. Kyler Murray recently signed a $230 million deal, as did Deshaun Watson. The Raven’s Lamar Jackson is on course to receive a similar windfall.

“I don’t worry about those guys and what they’re doing — awesome for them,” Wilson said after Wednesday’s practice. “Obviously, Kyler, great for him. Obviously, Lamar, with his situation, but it has nothing really to do with me. I’m excited to be here. I know I want to be here for a long, long time, hopefully the rest of my career. It’s been a blessing with these guys.
“My sole focus right now is winning a Super Bowl for the Denver Broncos and more.”
General manager George Paton wouldn’t be drawn on negotiations, but indicated all parties are on the same page.

“We all want Russell here a long time. I appreciate the question. Out of respect for his team and our team, we’re going to keep it in house — any discussions we may or may not have. I have a really good relationship with Russ’ agent, Mark Rodgers, and at the right time, we’ll get a deal done.”
