There are mixed opinions about Wilson's performance in Denver, but the Pittsburgh Steelers have acquired an NFL starting quarterback for a "bag of chips." This is a great deal for both sides.

Wilson gets a chance to reboot his career in a more stable environment. Kenny Pickett also gets time to develop.

Here are some additional details about the deal:

  • The contract is for one year, with a team option for a second year.
  • Wilson's base salary for the 2024 season will be $1.2 million.
  • The Denver Broncos will be responsible for paying the remaining $38 million of Wilson's contract.
  • Wilson will have a no-trade clause for the 2024 season.

This is a significant development for the Pittsburgh Steelers. They have been looking for a franchise quarterback for years, and they may have finally found one in Wilson.

It will be interesting to see how Wilson performs in Pittsburgh. He has a lot to prove, but he has the talent and experience to be a successful quarterback in the NFL.
