NFL QB Russell Wilson Says Goodbye To Seattle After Trade With Broncos: ‘Forever Grateful’

By Movieguide® Staff

The Denver Broncos officially acquired NFL quarterback Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks to revitalize their team with a future Hall of Fame Quarterback.

“Denver definitely gave up a lot, no one should be pretend they didn’t,” a top executive told CBS reporter Jason La Canfora. “But I get it. They had to do what it takes. It wasn’t too steep of a price to me.”

A general manager of a separate team added: “I think Denver made out very well. In that division they weren’t going anywhere without a top quarterback. And now they have one. That’s a trade I think you have to make.”

Seattle will look to rebuild around a new QB while the Broncos work to surround Wilson with talent.

Wilson confirmed the news via Twitter.

“SEATTLE, I Love You. Forever Grateful,” he wrote.

Russell Wilson is open about his Christian faith and putting his family first.

Movieguide® reported:

Outspoken Christian and NFL quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson used his platform to point people to God.

The eight-time Pro-Bowler encouraged his millions of followers to find peace in God via his social media accounts.

“Y’all ever go to bed, and you’re tossing and turning and can’t sleep? Your minds running … all these different things whether it’s big or small, whatever it may be, you can’t find that peace and a lot of times we’re trying to find the peace of me, the peace of you, the peace of us,” Wilson, 32, said.

He added: “What the Scripture says in Philippians 4:7, is the peace of God – the peace of God – that transcends all understanding. That’s the kind of peace that I want to have – the peace of God. I challenge us to try to search for that. And a lot of times what happens is that we run our own thoughts, our own ideas – we’re constantly thinking about what we want to do, how we want to fix it, how we want to handle this, and we want to do that.”

Wilson ended on a question, urging his followers to think about Christ.

“How about God, how about Jesus? What would He do? I think the biggest thing that we have to connect to is the promise of God,” Wilson said. “Actually, reading the Scripture and understanding what He wants for us and what He wants for me. I know for me personally, that’s what I’ve been working on. Not trying to find my own peace. I want the peace of God.”
