I'm waiting for the first billion dollar deal.


It's coming in the next 5+ years, in football (QB or pass rusher), MLB or maybe the NBA.

As for Russ, the Broncos really almost had to do this deal. That spent two first-round picks, two second rounders, a good fight end, a decent DL, a lottery ticket in Lock and a pick swap to get Wilson.

The deal is not as absurd as I assumed it would be but I, like Badger Buff below, have doubts this will work out as perfectly as planned.

I like Russ but not every QB ages slowly like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, two guys still at the top of their games.

I'm just really hoping Wilson can be a very, very good QB for three or four years. If the Broncos get five very good years, it's a win. I don't see RW being great for the length of the contract.
