The Denver Broncos announced Monday that they are releasing #RussellWilson next week, marking the end of what is being called and remembered as the WORST trade-and-sign deals in NFL history. Here is their statement: KOSI 101.1 Denver Releases Russel Wilson

Again not his fault they gave him that money but he will get paid base salary of $39 million next year either way. #Ouch #Denver #Football

After the news of Wilson’s release broke on Monday he responded in a very classy and heartfelt way:

Broncos Country, Thank You!

Over these last two years, you have welcomed my family and me with open arms and have embraced us as members of the Denver community. The city will always hold a special place in my heart. Our family grew here, we made countless memories and friendships, and formed relationships that will last a lifetime. 

To my teammates, thank you for going to battle together and for being there through it all. There are so many moments I cherish because of you and I am blessed for the impact you have made on my life. I am beyond grateful for all of you and to have been able to run out as your teammate was an honor. 

Court, I’ll never forget your one-handed catch in LA and your top tap in Buffalo. Bolles, you always wrapping your arm around me win or lose. Brandon Johnson your relentless work ethic. Jeu you snagging and high pointing that ball vs KC! Javonte and Tim… ya’ll always being positive in the midst of injury but fighting daily to be back! Jaleel, you running to the end zone very practice … I think Burton’s got you though! Alex, from picking you up years ago to seeing you shine! To the OLine dinners at Los Dos!

To everyone helping like Lamar, making sure I had all of the film and cut ups. To Harry & Cole – the best pregame warmpups. 

I’ll never forget Wendy & Brandy in the cafeteria! Daily bringing the good food, but the even better jams! Thank you for always being uplifting. 

Finally, to Ray, Aka Pastor Ray Jackson. Thanks for your countless prayers. Daily. To give God the praise daily and us getting on the floor to thank Jesus for breath in the good times and the bad times. He always gets the glory!

Tough times don’t last, but tough people do. 

God’s got me. 

I’m excited for what’s next.
