The Denver Broncos had a busy offseason.

The biggest move was the team’s acquisition of Russell Wilson. The Broncos received the Super-Bowl winning quarterback from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for Drew Lock, Noah Fant, Shelby Harris, and five draft picks.

The team also replaced coach Vic Fangio with Nathaniel Hackett and reached a sale agreement for $4.65 billion. 

Chad Brown, former NFL linebacker and current co-host of Chad and Nate, a weekday radio program on Denver’s Sports station 104.3 The Fan, joined Cattles & Ramie on Thursday afternoon to discuss the Denver Broncos and preview the AFC West ahead of the 2022 NFL season.

Topics discussed included:

  • What are the expectations for Russell Wilson?
  • Is it Super Bowl or bust for the Broncos?
  • How healthy is the wide receiving core?
  • How different is the mood and atmosphere under Nathaniel Hackett?
  • Does Randy Gregory have the biggest question mark on the team?
  • What is a realistic jump the team can make in the division after finish at the bottom last season?
