The Denver Broncos traded an impressive amount of players and draft picks to complete a blockbuster trade for quarterback Russel Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday.

The trade was close to completion as Wilson and his agent Mark Rodgers arrived in Denver. According to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis, the quarterback then went to the Broncos facility and finished his physical exams.

Wilson then signed his no-trade provision, as per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, and now he waits for the trade to become official when the new NFL year starts on March 16.

“My understanding was this was the only team Russell Wilson wanted to go to,” NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday. “Russell Wilson wanted to go to the Denver Broncos. It’s a place he likes … and they have a roster that is essentially stacked at receiver, on defense, at running back. All they needed was a quarterback, and they got one.”

In 2012, Wilson was a third-round pick out of Wisconsin and started as a rookie. Wilson then started 149 regular-season games and 16 playoff games. The Seahawks won their only Super Bowl title with a 43-8 victory with Wilson onboard.

The 33-year-old was prompted to miss three games last season due to a fractured middle finger on his right hand.

According to the NFL Network, the Wilson deal came with a fourth-round pick to the Broncos in exchange for two first-round picks, two second-round picks, a fifth-rounder, quarterback Drew Lock, defensive end Shelby Harris and tight end Noah Fant.
