Russell Wilson and Ciara are inarguably the most prominent celebrity couple in the NFL at the moment.
Once upon a time Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen held that distinction, but for obvious reasons that has changed over the past year.
While Wilson and Ciara generally find themselves in the headlines for things pertaining to his Denver Broncos exploits and her singing career, that’s not why they found themselves trending this week.
Rather, the reason the pair found themselves in the headlines was a wild video Wilson posted to his social media.

In the clip, the Broncos star and Ciara are spending time with more than 300 inmates, trying to brighten up their day and show them a path forward. Understandably, it left quite the impression on people.
“This is probably the best video I’ve seen on social media in a long time . Glad you can block out all the outside noise and continue doing what you’re doing,” one fan wrote.
“He is ignoring all the hate comments and doing Gods work I really don’t know why people hate him,” another fan agreed.
“I don’t understand how people can dislike him,” a third fan chimed in.
It’s easy to see why fans feel this way. In a world where Dak Prescott’s new girlfriend is out here going wild for her 21st birthday, Wilson is happily married with a beautiful family and somehow gets ten times the criticism.
Obviously Wilson and Ciara are no strangers to going viral. Between their wild photos together, her intimate public love messages to him and the pair’s provocative way of doing things like celebrating Valentine’s Day, it has been one item after another.
But this most recent video is different. It shows what sort of people Wilson and Ciara truly are.
Obviously the Broncos were a massive disappointment last year. It was punctuated by a bunch of Wilson’s teammates not showing up to his birthday party.
That said, there is a reason the front office went out and hired Sean Payton despite the hefty cost. Wilson wasn’t great in 2022-23, but Nathaniel Hackett didn’t put him in a position to succeed either.

Payton knows what it’s like to win at the highest level with top-tier quarterbacks.
Next season will be a massive one for all parties involved.
Will Wilson and Ciara be able to reclaim their position as not only one of the NFL’s most noteworthy power couples, but also more successful ones? Time will tell.
