Russell Wilson to sign with Steelers after release from Broncos becomes official, per reports

Russell Wilson ended the question of where he would play the 2024 NFL season before free agency officially began, with ESPN and NFL Network reporting Sunday night that he will sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers on a one-year deal.

Wilson, 35, is set to be released by the Denver Broncos this week once the new league year officially begins Wednesday, the organization announced last week.

The Steelers are entering a team-friendly deal, according to ESPN, with the Broncos paying approximately $38 million of the guaranteed money he’s owed for this season.

Wilson was spotted flying to Pittsburgh through Newark International Airport on Friday. He also met with the New York Giants, according to multiple reports.

Mason Rudolph finished out the year as the team's starter even when Pickett was healthy enough to return from a late-season ankle injury, but he is set to be a free agent.

Both general manager Omar Khan and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin expressed interest in bringing in competition for Pickett for the top job.
