Russell Wilson had something of a rough inaugural campaign with the Denver Broncos this year, but his wife Ciara is doing her best to make him forget about that.
Wilson was traded by the Seattle Seahawks to Denver last offseason in what was billed as one of the biggest and most consequential transactions in years.
The move was supposed to set the Broncos up as a legitimate Super Bowl contender and a true roadblock to the Kansas City Chiefs’ AFC West dominance. Obviously that didn’t end up happening.
Wilson wound up having the worst year of his career in Denver, leading to questions about whether he was officially washed.
Fortunately, although Wilson’s professional life is very much up in the air right now, he is doing quite well for himself as far as his personal life goes.
Ciara published a romantic video message to her beau in honor of Valentine’s Day this week that immediately went viral.

“This is so sweet,” one person replied.
“So beautiful,” someone else agreed.
“Love it,” a third person co-signed.
This isn’t the first time one of Ciara’s video messages to her beau has caused a stir. Something similar happened with her provocative offering last month as well.
It truly seems like, despite the adversity, Wilson and Ciara are always there for each other. And there has definitely been a lot of adversity to test that theory.
You had star NFL players criticize Wilson and Ciara. You had fans take issue with their vacation photos. And then of course there was that infamous incident where they allegedly ran away from rapper Future at a party.
Through it all, Wilson and Ciara have proven to be about as resilient a couple as there is in sports.
By any objective measure, the 2022-23 NFL season was a very tough one for the Broncos and everyone associated with the franchise. Now the team is being linked to a trade that could make 2023-24 even tougher on Wilson.

One way or another, next season will be very telling.
If Wilson bounces back under new head coach Sean Payton, everyone will assume 2022-23 was an aberration. He and Ciara will reclaim their status as the King and Queen of the NFL and everyone will celebrate them once more.
Should the Broncos come up short again, though – that will lead to some uncomfortable questions about whether it’s time for Wilson to call it a career once and for all.
