Russell Wilson is entering his 11th NFL season in 2022, but he enters it in an unusual place. After beginning his career with the Seattle Seahawks, Wilson enters new territory as the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos.

Adding to the intrigue, Wilson begins that journey with a Monday Night Football contest as the visiting QB in Seattle. It should be an electric environment to begin the season.

Wilson discussed that return Thursday and said that has “gratitude” for playing 10 years under head coach Pete Carroll. He went on to say he “gave my heart and soul every day” and knows Seahawk fans will be ready with a wild environment.

Carroll was also asked about Wilson’s return and the fan reception, but the head coach declined to get into what should happen. He said he will leave that up to “the 12’s.” He also claimed the game will not be any different with Wilson on the opposing sideline.

Wilson threw for 37,059 yards and 292 touchdowns during his career with the Seahawks. That tenure included 9 Pro Bowl appearances and a Super Bowl title.
