Denver Broncos inform quarterback Russell Wilson they’ll release him when the new league year begins

 Russell Wilson was informed on Monday that the Denver Broncos will release him next week

 18 months after signing him to a five-year, $242 million contract extension.  

 The Broncos owe Wilson $39 million for 2024, minus his probable $1.21 million minimum pay if he signs elsewhere. 

Possible landing spot: Pittsburgh. The Steelers will visit Denver next season. 

 The Broncos will pay a record $89 million in dead cap charges over two seasons. 

 Wilson rebounded last season under new coach Sean Payton, throwing for 26 touchdowns and eight picks in 15 games. 

 Payton benched him for Jarrett Stidham in the final two games because it wasn't good enough  

 Broncos finished 8-9, their seventh consecutive losing season and ninth without a playoff spot, as Stidham went 1-1.
