On Thursday, Denver Broncos QB Russell Wilson signed a massive 5-year extension with the club to stay with the team through 2028 — all before he took his first snap. Charles Robinson & Frank Schwab discuss what the $245 million contract means for Denver, his former team the Seattle Seahawks & the class of young QBs about to sign new extensions of their own: Lamar Jackson, Joe Burrow & Justin Herbert.

Later in the podcast, Charles talks about the disappointing run of Las Vegas Raiders first round picks, culminating in the squad cutting OL Alex Leatherwood earlier this week. For the rest of the show, the guys preview the twelve teams of the NFC North, NFC South & AFC South.
