Top 32 NFL QBs of 2022: Where does Vikings QB Kirk Cousins rank?
By Adam Patrick
No. 10: Russell Wilson (Denver Broncos)
For the first time in his NFL career, Russell Wilson won’t be taking the field in a Seattle Seahawks uniform next season. Instead, Wilson will be sporting an orange and blue Broncos jersey.
Wilson joins a Denver team that only managed to win seven games in 2021, so he’ll have his work cut out for him. He’ll also be working with a rookie head coach in Nathaniel Hackett, who spent the last three years as the Packers’ offensive coordinator.
The Broncos will be hoping that the partnership of Hackett and Wilson is one that can eventually deliver the franchise another Vince Lombardi trophy.
No. 9: Matthew Stafford (Los Angeles Rams)
Speaking of Vince Lombardi trophies, all Matthew Stafford had to do to get one was to get the Detroit Lions to trade him.
Stafford was dealt by the Lions to the Rams last year and it was easily one of the most significant moments of his career. He fit in nicely with the offensive scheme that Los Angeles head coach Sean McVay likes to run, and it resulted in the veteran quarterback throwing for a career-high, 41 touchdowns.
Stafford should be able to put up similar numbers in 2022 with Cooper Kupp returning and with the Rams’ offseason signing of free-agent wide receiver Allen Robinson.
