Russell Wilson Drinking From Fountain Of Youth In Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Russell Wilson feels like he’s getting back on track after a difficult two years in his career.

Russell Wilson moved from the Seahawks to the Broncos in 2022 and his play took a dip. Although he was released in 2023, it represented a rehabilitative year. Last season Russell Wilson threw for 26 touchdowns for 8 interceptions.

At 35, it probably has to work out in Pittsburgh if Wilson is going to be considered an NFL starter. Luckily, he says he doesn’t feel his age since signing with the Steelers.

“Man, I feel the fountain of youth,” Wilson said.

“I feel revived in every way, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, I feel confident. I think at some point you have to know who you are as a player, as a man, as a competitor. As somebody who’s been fortunate to be able to play this game, I don’t doubt it, I trust it, I felt really good last year playing. I felt really confident in the midst of everything. And so I think right now I have all that confidence times 10.”

Wilson is projected to start for the Steelers ahead of Justin Fields next season, although it hasn’t been made official. According to head coach Arthur Smith, ‘Russ is in the pole position.’

“It’s a competition,” Smith said. “Obviously, we get to Latrobe [for training camp], I’m sure things will heat up, but both those guys knew that, however they were acquired, and they got here and I think it’s been pretty transparent.”
