Assuming the Denver Broncos release quarterback Russell Wilson, numerous teams are expected to pursue the nine-time Pro Bowler.
The Atlanta Falcons, Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Pittsburgh Steelers are among the teams that could sign the 35-year-old, according to league executives.
Fowler observed that Minnesota is likely to re-sign Kirk Cousins, and Tampa Bay may extend Baker Mayfield, thus Atlanta appears to be the best option.
The Falcons finished eighth in the league in terms of rushing yards per game (127). Executives noted that Wilson requires a strong ground game to thrive.
"Still an instinctual thrower, still has arm talent to throw the ball downfield," a personnel evaluator told Fowler. "Still a good mover.
Has consistently threw a good deep ball. It's just that if you ask him to throw the ball 35 times per game, he's likely to struggle. "That's not who he is."
Broncos head coach Sean Payton just stated that Wilson may return next season, although this is improbable. Denver benched him in Week 17, despite throwing 26 touchdown passes in 15 games.
He also said that earlier this year, the team threatened to sideline him if he would not defer a $37 million injury guarantee.
