Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson has actively helped the team recruit free agents, calling players like pass rusher Randy Gregory during the first wave of free agency.

The big signings have since calmed down and attention turned to the NFL draft last weekend. Denver used its first to picks to select pass rusher Nik Bonitto and tight end Greg Dulcich. Wilson quickly reached out to both of his new teammates.

“It was crazy,” Bonitto said last Saturday. “I talked to him all last night. He’s just an extremely humble dude. He was excited for me. He’s a guy — he could’ve done whatever he wanted to do but he’s a legend in the game. Just getting that call from him, knowing how much I meant to him coming into here — I just want to pay him back tenfold and work as hard as I can coming into new beginnings.”

Dulcich was also excited to hear from his new QB.

“It was awesome getting a FaceTime from ‘Russ’ last night,” the tight end said. “I was like, ‘This is a Hall of Fame’ dude — this is the man, and he’s just Face Timing me!’ So that was just an honor. I’m excited to get out there and work with him.”

Wilson will get on the field with his new teammates when the Broncos begin organized team activities later this month, followed by minicamp in June. Denver is expected to begin training camp in late July.
