Russell Wilson’s looming 2022-23 NFL campaign with the Denver Broncos will be a big one. His recent struggles with the Seattle Seahawks were shrugged off because of the poor offensive line he was working with.
That excuse won’t work in Denver.
In an effort to get his mind right before arguably the biggest season of his pro career, Wilson and his wife Ciara decided to take a little vacation.
This week, photos from that trip leaked online and went viral. They largely speak for themselves:

Wilson and Ciara have been in the headlines nonstop over the past few months. Be it for controversy surrounding their marriage, the weird dramas they’ve gotten themselves embroiled in or running away from Future at shindigs – it has been one thing after another.
It got so serious at one point that even one of Wilson’s former Seahawks teammates had to come out and address the pair.

That said – the off-the-field stuff doesn’t matter. All that matters from here on out is how Wilson does with the Broncos.
The franchise needs him to step up and be the MVP-caliber player that he once was. If he can do that, then none of the outside noise will matter one iota.
If he can’t, though – then Wilson and Ciara will find themselves the subjects of a lot of scrutiny in Denver.
