The DNVR Broncos Twitter account asked NFL fans what the worst contract in the history of Denver’s professional football franchise was, and unsurprisingly, one of the most popular answers was Russell Wilson. The 34-year-old signed an extension for $245 million that includes $165 million guaranteed per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on September 1, 2022, before he played a regular season game for the Broncos.

Several fans immediately though of Wilson when the Broncos fan page floated the question to Twitter:

Although Wilson is signed through the 2028 season, the 2023 season is reportedly being seen as an audition year under new head coach Sean Payton.

Wilson certainly had plenty of fans calling him the owner of the biggest albatross in Broncos history, but there was one who received even more criticism as the worst contract the Denver front office has ever signed off on: Ja’Wuan James. The 2014 first-round NFL draft pick signed a four-year, $51 million deal but played a total of three games.

James received a litany of replies that believed he is the biggest mistake the Broncos have ever made in free agency:
