With today's blockbuster trade sending Russell Wilson to Denver, the AFC West now officially has the most stacked quarterback lineup in the league.

Joining established superstar Patrick Mahomes, rising talent Justin Herbert and consistent veteran Derek Carr, the arrival of Wilson adds yet another star presence as the Broncos' new franchise quarterback.

Fans and analysts from around the NFL world took to Twitter to react to this incredible QB division.

"The AFC West is now the land of great QBs. And the NFC is only getting easier," NFL insider Matt Verderame wrote.

The Broncos, who were previously on the hunt for Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, acquired Wilson in exchange for "multiple first-round picks" and a couple young players -- including former Denver signal caller Drew Lock.
