2022 NFL Free Agency, Live Updates: AFC West

5 min read
Russell Wilson was traded to the Denver Broncos this offseason.

After accumulating over 37,000 passing yards and nearly 5,000 more on the ground (4,689), former Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was traded to the Denver Broncos this offseason. The nine-time Pro Bowler has thrown just 92 interceptions in his career.

The AFC West’s free agency/offseason started fast, as the Broncos seemingly traded away one-eighth of its team and several draft picks for former Seattle signal-caller Russell Wilson’s services. But all of the division’s quarterbacks have a lot to deal with on the other side of the ball. The Raiders added Chandler Jones and Khalil Mack returns to the division as a Charger. To top it off, the Broncos signed former Cowboys standout Randy Gregory to pair with Bradley Chubb. The updates are live, so please come back to see who your favorite team signs or loses in free agency.
