It seems like Russell Wilson can’t do anything right.. not even when it comes to promoting a Subway sandwich.
The Broncos quarterback had a signature sandwich on the Subway menu earlier this year, but the sub is not longer available and many on social media are speculating that it has to do with how Wilson’s commercials have been widely mocked on the internet.
The fast-food franchise announced ‘The Dangerwich’ back in February as part of The Vault menu at participating Subway’s across the country. Wilson was not the only player with a sandwich. His former Seahawks teammate Marshawn Lynch had the “The Beef Mode” and Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence’s had “The Sunshine Sub.”
The “Dangerwich” came on Italian herbs and cheese bread and was topped with pepperoni, salami, black forest ham, bacon and provolone cheese. It was also topped with lettuce, green peppers, tomatoes, banana peppers, and finished with yellow mustard and mayo.
Subway responded to these claims to TMZ Sports saying the sandwich was actually moved from the vault in August. However, the spokesperson promised that it will be back on the menu soon:
“Subway works with a variety of athlete partners, and The Vault is the perfect place to showcase their favorite sandwiches,. While The Dangerwich sub left The Vault in August to make room for some new, craveable options, don’t worry, The Dangerwich will be back soon.”
It’s been a tough start to Wilson’s career with the Broncos, as the team is 2-4 on the year and he’s struggling mightily. He’s competed just 58 percent of his passes for just 1,442 yards and five touchdowns. The team has only reached 20 points once all season, and they were held to just 16 and 11 points in their wins over the Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers, respectively.
Wilson is also dealing with a hamstring injury that has him questionable for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.
