Russell Wilson insists he has ‘great relationships’ in Broncos locker room

Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson has insisted all is well between him and his teammates amid rumors of a locker room rift. 

“I mean, I’ve got great relationships in that locker room, so whoever was trying to tear it down, you can’t,” Wilson explained Wednesday, as shared by Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk. 

Television cameras picked up Broncos defensive tackle Mike Purcell yelling in Wilson’s face during this past Sunday’s loss to the Carolina Panthers which dropped the Broncos to 3-8 on what’s become a season to forget. Days later, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero (h/t New York Post) reported that Wilson “has lost some people around that team” and “lost some people in that locker room.” Mike Klis of 9News then raised eyebrows when he tweeted that “about half” of the Denver team attended a midweek birthday party for Wilson. That seemingly would indicate “about half” of the team skipped the event. 

Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett referred to such chatter about Wilson’s standing in the locker room as “gossip” earlier on Wednesday. Wilson remarked that “there’s always noise” of a negative nature hovering over a team when things aren’t going well. 

“The thing is that you don’t bad mouth,” Wilson added during his comments. “My biggest goal every day is to continue to try to lead at the highest level and to be consistent every day with my approach, to never change and not let the highs of life change you and not let the lows [change you]. Just be consistent with your approach, knowing that I love these guys every day, man, of who they are and what they’re about. . . . It’s a blessing to be on this team, and I’m honored.” 

Wilson and the Broncos will look to put any supposed issues behind them when they play at the 7-4 Baltimore Ravens this Sunday.
