I think it’s safe to say that Denver Broncos fans are excited about this upcoming 2022 season.
There was a sea of blue and orange at UCHealth Training Center as Denver Broncos fans lined up Saturday morning to see their team, and most notably, their new QB in action. What’s even crazier is that some people started lining up as early as midnight.
When it was all said and done, 7,121 fans would arrive to see the team. That is a significant number for many reasons.
That number is so big that it out-drew multiple Oakland Athletics games from this season:
Back in March, the team traded for Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson. In return, the team agreed to trade quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, defensive lineman Shelby Harris, two first-round picks (2022 — No. 9 overall — and 2023), two second-round picks (2022 — No. 40 overall — and 2023) and a 2022 fifth-round selection to the Seahawks for Wilson and a 2022 fourth-round pick.
Denver has been trying to find a suitable quarterback since Peyton Manning retired.
Enter the 33-year-old Wilson.
