Ciara and kids were in full support of Russell Wilson as he got introduced as the new quarterback of the Denver Broncos on Wednesday.
‘”Broncos Country, Baby,” Ciara captioned underneath a candid of her family showing off Russell’s new helmet. All members of the Wilson family also wore the team’s colors. “Let’s ride,” Ciara said.
Russell Wilson’s trade to the Denver Broncos from the Seattle Seahawks became official a few days ago. “The thing that really sets Russell apart is that he’s a winner,” general manager George Paton said during Russell’s introductory press conference. “No quarterback in their first 10 years in the league has won as many games as Russ,” Paton added.
“And here we are. We’re bringing him to a team that is talented, that is hungry, that just needs to learn how to win. And we feel like he’s going to get us to where we need to go.”
The Broncos have struggled since Peyton Manning retired from the NFL in 2016. The team has certainly enjoyed various successes since Peyton’s retirement. The Broncos have, however, lacked a solid quarterback for years.
“Broncos Country is about the history of the game,” Russell said in his message to his new team. “And I’m excited about it,” Wilson added. “I’m excited about wearing the blue and orange. I’m proud to be a Bronco, it’s an honor, it’s a gift,” the star athlete shared. “I’m super excited about it, I’m super excited about winning,” Wilson told the press.
“I came here for one reason,” Russell went on to tell his supporters who include all the fans he garnered while playing for the Seahawks for ten years. “[I] came here for one reason to win and that’s what I believe in,” Wilson said.
Ciara and Russell Wilson visited Children’s Hospital in Colorado earlier this week. The 2022 NFL season begins later this year.
