Additionally, Wilson's contract could hold up well even after his cap hits reach $50 million in 2025 due to the NFL's rising salary cap and the fact that other quarterbacks are expected to sign significant contracts in the upcoming years.
“For me, it wasn’t really about how much [money], necessarily,” Wilson said Thursday. “It was about how many Super Bowls we can win. That’s really the focus.”
With cap flexibility going forward and a franchise QB under contract, the Broncos can be aggressive, similar to when they signed stars like DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib, Emmanuel Sanders and T.J. Ward during the Peyton Manning era.
