Russell Wilson, the quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, believes he has a lot of petrol left in his tank. Wilson, 35, has found fresh life with the Steelers after two disappointing seasons with the Denver Broncos. The 35-year-old veteran was signed to a one-year contract in March.

Wilson remarked, “Man, I feel the fountain of youth,” after the Steelers’ first required minicamp workout on Tuesday. “Every aspect of my life feels renewed—mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I have self-assurance. You have to know who you are as a man, a competitor, and a player at some time, in my opinion.I don’t doubt it, as someone who has been privileged to play this game. I have faith in it. Playing last year, I felt great. In the middle of everything, I felt incredibly confident. I believe that I am now ten times more confident than I was before.”

Wilson had signed a five-year, $245 million extension with Denver in September 2022, months after being traded by the Seattle Seahawks. He only ended up playing two years of that deal before being released by the Broncos, who still owed him $85 million at the time.

“Russ is in the pole position,” Steelers offensive coordinator Arthur Smith said. “It’s a competition. Obviously, we get to (training camp), I’m sure things will heat up, but both (Wilson and Fields) knew that, however they were acquired, and they got here and I think it’s been pretty transparent.” Prior to his stint with Denver, Wilson spent his first 10 NFL seasons with the Seahawks, winning one Super Bowl and getting to another. He has thrown for 43,653 yards and 334 TDs against 106 picks in 188 career games.
