Ex-Broncos QB Russell Wilson sells Denver-area home at $3.5 million loss

Although the Denver Broncos didn’t save any money by releasing ex-quarterback Russell Wilson, they may take a little satisfaction in that Wilson took at least one more loss on his way out of town.

Wilson sold his Cherry Hills home at a $3.5 million loss on March 20, according to Kourtney Geers of the Denver Business Journal. While the quarterback lost money, it was still a huge sale of $21.5 million, according to property records.

Wilson likely won’t lose any sleep over the sale given that he will have earned about $85 million from his two years with the Broncos.

Wilson bought his infamous 12-bathroom, four-bedroom, 20,060-square-foot house for a Denver-area record $25 million when he was brought in from Seattle to become the starting quarterback for the Broncos in 2022.

Wilson’s extravagant taste in real estate did not exactly translate to his play on the field. In his first season, it took until Week 15 for Wilson to throw for more than 12 touchdowns. Although his productivity spiked under head coach Sean Payton, Wilson was benched for the final two games of the 2023 season, then released this spring.

Wilson, now a clear-cut starter for the Pittsburgh Steelers, will still get a significant payday from Denver in 2024, but the QB’s time in Colorado has officially come to an end.

Wilson ends his Broncos tenure with fewer wins (11) than bathrooms (12) in the home he sold at a loss.
