The National Football League is full of electric quarterback/wide receiver duos.

A few of them are in the AFC, but the Denver Broncos have one that may become prolific. Russell Wilson spent 10 seasons in Seattle as a former third-round pick of the 2012 NFL Draft. He won a Super Bowl for the Seahawks and earned nine Pro Bowl selections. Wilson got traded to Denver on March 16 and inherited a talented receiver in former Alabama star Jerry Jeudy.

Jeudy, 23, got selected at No. 15 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft. He had a good rookie season with Drew Lock at quarterback, catching 52 passes for 856 yards and three touchdowns. Jeudy suffered an injury in 2021 and totaled 38 receptions for 467 yards receiving in 10 games. The 6-foot-1, 193-pounder has been excited about what he can do with Wilson getting him the ball.

Jeudy’s charges for second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer have been dropped. He returned to the Broncos and continues offseason camp. Denver posted a photo of Wilson and Jeudy on Twitter, and Wilson is pumped for the potential success both can have. He captioned the photo, “I can get used to this.” Jeudy provides Wilson with what Tyler Lockett gave him during his time in Seattle. Jeudy has the quickness, speed, explosiveness, separation in routes, and hands to make plays.

He was a two-time 1,000+ yard receiver, All-American, and Fred Biletnikoff Award winner at Alabama.

It is about to get interesting in the AFC West with Wilson and Jeudy cooking things up in Denver.
