The Denver Broncos are prepared to build around recently-acquired Russell Wilson.

Per Mike Klis, Wilson was frustrated that he didn't have enough weapons in Seattle but that won't be the case in Denver.

"Once (we) get to know him, understand him, we'll build it around him," head coach Nathaniel Hackett told Klis. "So what is it going to be? It’s going to be what Russell likes to do.”

Wilson already has some great weapons around him in Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy. Both receivers combined to have over 1,000 receiving yards last season. In the running game, Denver has Javonte Williams coming back for his second season as he's looking to go over 1,000 rushing yards. As a rookie this past season, Williams finished with 903 yards and four touchdowns off 203 carries. Melvin Gordon III was also great last season and it'll be interesting to see if the Broncos bring him back. He had 918 yards and eight touchdowns on 203 carries. The NFL world is excited to see what Wilson can do with a new team.

The Broncos will be looking to make the playoffs for the first time since 2015.
