Russell Wilson’s broad receiving corps has defended the polarizing quarterback online amid a week of investigations for the Broncos.
Wilson has faced immense criticism throughout the season. However, things got even worse after Christmas Day’s humiliating 51-14 loss to the LA Rams and the firing of head coach Nathaniel Hackett on Sunday.
Jerry Jeudy first dismissed rhetoric that Wilson was self-centered and distant from teammates, exacerbated by Shannon Sharpe on Undisputed Tuesday.

Barstool Sports shared an article about Sharpe’s comments on Thursday. Jeudy then responded, targeting the “media” as a whole.
“I’m not going to look at these false statements about my Boii Russ man any longer,” Jeudy began.
“As a teammate who sees this man’s elite work ethic, he is second to none. He got an office because he dedicated his life to this game. I’ve never had a teammate who motivates me more than Russ.’

Jeudy then made two more comments about his quarterback in the minutes after his first tweet.
“I’m just tired of the media trying to portray the sum it isn’t. Fooled the whole world,’ he said. Before you add, “If you don’t know someone personally, don’t talk about it.”
Hamler also cited the article and threw his support behind the former Seattle star.

Hamler, an ex-Penn State wideout, said Wilson is a teammate who “goes above and beyond.”
“3 will do anything to win for the team,” wrote Hamler.
“You’re not going to beat him up and pretend he’s still not the same Russ who won a Super Bowl and bowled pro nine times. I stand behind my QB love u 3.’
