The Broncos’ first off-season training featured new leaders: QB Russell Wilson, coach Nathaniel Hackett.
Englewood, Colorado. – etc. First day of off season practicenew quarterback, Russell Wilson, faked delivery of the new coach, then raised and cast.
Yes, Nathaniel Hackett is a business coach.
“It just brings so much energy,” Wilson said. “He’s young, he’s vibrant, he brings that wit to the game. He obviously has great pedigree. He wants to win too, so. But our relationship is really strong. To give him a little bit of delivery here and there. Someone said they called him White Lightning. I don’t know. .”
This was the first day of the Broncos Volunteer Little Camp. It’s a plus that only teams with a new coach can get.
“You want guys to come in here, they want to train, they want to get better — and Ross is leading that mission,” Hackett said. “I mean, this guy loves training. There at the end, it was ‘Wait.'” We finished? Can we do more? “I like it but we have to tone it down. Small steps.”

During and after his first practice with the Broncos, it’s easy to see why Wilson is a leader. Very confident. Commanding presence. Stands firm and upright when addressing the media. Clever in his own words. He constantly praises his teammates.
And as General Manager George Patton looked at former GM John Elway, it has become clear in recent days that Wilson holds another title: GM’s advisor.
“I talk to Ross every day and kind of tell him our plan, what we’re looking at and our needs,” Button said Friday at his press conference before the draft was drafted. “Ross is a football junkie. He will want to know the players we are looking at, and I will tell him. He will watch them and give me his opinion. He is a great resource. It is good to be there.”
Do not misunderstand. Wilson does not call the shots with the crew. But he wants to stay involved. And yes, he could watch a tape about a prospect draft and give Patton — who is seeking input from everyone — his thoughts.

“In terms of getting that knowledge and everything he thinks we have a lot of great players going through the recruiting process, playing 10 years in the league and playing a lot of football, you know what it takes a little bit,” Wilson said. “George is always giving me ideas – hey, what do you think of this guy? Check this guy out. I love football. I’m passionate about it. I’m passionate about the game. I’m excited to do whatever I do. You can help this team win.”
There’s a long way to go before Jill Bronco is enough to become a playoff contender. But for starters, the new coach and center back have already got their hands on the gameplay.
“I always wanted to play at the back when I was younger,” said Hackett, who lined up at the back quarterback and ran to take the fake from the quarterback during training one. “No, you want to make everything look as game-like as possible. Especially in the passing world, you want your quarterback to feel like someone is there. I feel like I gave it a realistic look, maybe not.”
