The Denver Broncos totaled a 7-10 record last season.

But with QB Russell Wilson in town, they’re set to go 13-4 this season, according to a prediction from the NFL.com columnist Jim Trotter.

Ahead of training camp, Trotter stated how much the acquisition of Wilson affected the Broncos.

“Two words: Russell Wilson,” Trotter wrote on the league’s official website. “All we heard last season was that the Broncos were a quarterback away from being a Super Bowl contender. Well, they have one in Wilson, the former Seahawks star who is regarded as one of the game’s top talents at the position. Wilson wants to be mentioned among the greats of the game, and he knows that will require more Super Bowls. If you know Wilson, you know it doesn’t sit well with him that his Super Bowl appearances with Seattle are associated with the Legion of Boom and the running of Marshawn Lynch more than they are with his play. Not judging, just saying he wants to stamp indelible fingerprints on the Lombardi Trophy. He should have an opportunity with a Denver team that has a roster flush with talent, particularly at the receiver position. The Broncos upgraded the defensive front with the signings of D.J. Jones and Randy Gregory, and added a solid cornerback in K’Waun Williams. But it all will come back to Wilson.”

Great point about Wilson’s previous Super Bowl ring being associated to the Legion of Boom and Lynch. Sounds like more reason to bet on the Wilson-Jerry Jeudy QB-WR duo as the stack to draft in your fantasy football leagues this summer.

Trotter’s praise comes on the heels of his colleague Adam Rank predicting the Broncos will go 12-5 next season. Second-year CB Pat Surtain, meanwhile, drew praise from the league’s official website earlier this month as well. He ranked as the fourth-best coverage player last season. Check out the rest of Trotter’s tenacity in believing the Broncos will improve with six wins this season.
