Last year, the Denver Broncos made a major move to address the quarterback position, with the storied NFL franchise making a blockbuster trade with the Seattle Seahawks to bring in superstar Russell Wilson.
Unfortunately, the move was not an immediate success for the Broncos, as Wilson did not look like the superstar of old and many wondered if the team had made the right move.
With Wilson being a significant question mark going forward, the Broncos made some moves in the NFL offseason to get some insurance behind their superstar quarterback.
The most important move was quickly signing former Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jarrett Stidham after free agency began, and now the team has made another move, even if it’s a bit unorthodox, according to the team’s former XFL quarterback Ben to ESPN’s Adam Schefter for making the deal to DiNucci.

Obviously, the signing of DiNucci isn’t going to make national headlines, as he’s only played three games for the Dallas Cowboys at the NFL level in 2020 to fill in for Dak Prescott.
The real question for the Broncos moving forward is whether Wilson can bounce back from a disastrous first season in Denver now that head coach Sean Payton is in the fold.
All eyes will be on Wilson and Payton as the coach-quarterback pairing will be one of the major stories during the 2023 NFL season.
In 2022, Wilson threw a career-low 16 touchdowns to go along with 3,524 passing yards and 11 interceptions.
He ran for 277 yards and three touchdowns on 55 carries.
