Wilson, for his part, was pleased with his time with the Broncos and is similarly looking forward to what the future holds. 

“Over these last two years, you have welcomed my family and me with open arms and have embraced us as members of the Denver community,” he said honestly. “This city will always hold a special place in my heart. Our family grew here, we made countless memories and friendships, and formed relationships that will last a lifetime.”

He then took a moment to address his fellow Broncos one last time. “To my teammates, thank you for going to battle together and for being there through it all,” he said. “There are so many moments I cherish because of you and I am blessed for the impact you have made on my life. I am beyond grateful for all of you and to have been able to run out as your teammate was an honor.”

“Tough times don’t last, but tough people do,” he concluded. “God’s got me. I am excited for what’s next.”
