Russell Wilson to sign with Steelers: Super Bowl winning QB agrees to one-year deal with Pittsburgh

Free agency hasn't even started yet and Russell Wilson has already found his new team. The former Denver Broncos quarterback announced Sunday night that he'll be signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

According to, Wilson has agreed to a one-year deal that will pay him somewhere around the league minimum of $1.21 million.

Wilson was willing to sign a cheap deal because he'll be making $39 million during the 2024 season no matter what. The Broncos will be paying him nearly $38 million while the Steelers will be on the hook for the rest.

Wilson can agree to a deal with the Steelers now, but he won't be able to officially sign it until Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET.

Wilson visited with both the Giants and the Steelers over the past few days, but he clearly like what he saw in Pittsburgh more.

At the NFL Combine, general manager Omar Khan said he has "full faith" in Pickett, but he also said the team would explore all options when it comes to finding a quarterback.
