Courtland Sutton: The juice is just different with Russell Wilson

The Broncos have started their offseason program and that’s giving their players a chance to feel what life is like with quarterback Russell Wilson as a teammate.

Wilson’s arrival in a March trade with the Seahawks shook up the outlook for the Broncos in new head coach Nathaniel Hackett’s first season on the job. The team has been searching for a high-level quarterback since Peyton Manning retired and landing Wilson ratchets up the expectations in Denver.

Wide receiver Courtland Sutton said at a Tuesday press conference that it has already become clear that “we have to operate at a different standard” now that Wilson is in town.

“You all can feel it, we all can feel it,” Sutton said. “The juice is just different. . . . Knowing that we have a guy that has been at the top of that mountain before, has won a Super Bowl before, does know what it’s like to be at the highest level and lead his team to the Super Bowl.”

Sutton returned from a torn ACL to catch 58 passes for 776 yards and two touchdowns last season. An offseason free of rehab and an upgrade at quarterback bode well for his chances of reaching the raised bar in Denver.

  1. That’s usually the case when you go from a college QB to a first ballot NFL HOFer.

  2. My Washington stupid new name team tried to give away our next two drafts for him. The best thing that could have possibly happened was that he rejected us! We won by losing in this instance! He’s NOT worth the compensation. Denver will learn that the hard way!

  3. Wilson is a very good QB, no doubt, but Sutton is acting like Denver didn’t try to win before, but they will now.

    It’ll be fun watching the AFC West. They now have some of the best QBs in the league….Wilson, Mahomes, Herbert, Carr

  4. Does anyone not know that Sutton made the Pro Bowl a few years ago with Flacco and Lock at QB? People act like he’s some 4th string WR.

  5. Let see how Russell goes. Wish Bronco didn’t trade that guy(LOOK AT ME!)LOL!!

  6. Yeah, and Kirk Cousins made the Pro Bowl this year. It hasn’t exactly been the best metric for gauging players the last few years.

  7. Ah the honeymoon period is sweet and full of promise. But get ready Denver, his agent is Mark Rodgers who as a baseball agent will not only want to set the market but want the contract totally gauranteed and since Cleveland is stupid you are looking at north of 45 million. You will also see he rarely will throw over the middle(he short) and I know I got sick of yelling at the TV throw the damn ball. He throws a beautiful deep ball but does not seem capable of throwing his receivers open. He was the best QB in Seahawks history but it was time for him to move on.

  8. Wilson has done everything right. Everything to be endeared by NFL fans who know football. The rest are biased against a guy who has no blemish on his reputation on or off the field.

    The man who put Seattle on the map can get no love from certain people for a specific certain reason. One QB has more wins than Wilson through his career. He’s a definite 1st ballot HOF if he quits today.

    This just in: he has not quit.

    Now name the receivers he had to compete with on the Broncos that year. It’s laughable.

  10. The “Juice” is also hits different when referencing the Washington Commanders

  11. Making the Pro Bowl and being an All Pro is like the difference between hamburger and steak. Making a Pro Bowl means nothing more than he was the “best” WR that said “yes” he would play.

  12. Wait til he and everyone realizes he’s actually got worse receivers in Den than he had in Sea.

  13. Everyone in Denver thinking they got the Russell Wilson of 10 years ago. You got a 33yo QB that just had surgery on his throwing hand and had one of the worst Offensive lines in the NFL the last 3 years. He ain’t the same Russell Wilson you all falling in love with wait till you go to bed and he takes his makeup off and you see him at 7am and then tell us about the different juice he brings.

  14. As a Rams fan, I’d tell CourtlandSutton to enjoy the third best quarterback in the AFC West Juice, amd get ready to drink some third place in The Afc West Juice. Russ is done.

  15. Maybe if Denver operated at a different standard all along they would if won more.
    Really bad optics with the different standard comments.

  16. He’s not wrong, and RW is a great dude that gives back to his community and is probably super fun to hang out with, but let’s be real, “different” doesn’t mean you’re going to win it all or even get close. It’s not saying you won’t, either, it’s just that you’re in a tough division with a guy that’s cashing checks from a win 8 years ago.

    He’s not the same guy that won in 2014, and he’s not the same guy that lost the game in 2015…he’s much older and hasn’t shown anything resembling elite for a long time.

  17. I don’t know about any difference in the juice, but Sutton is definitely drinking the Russ Kool-Aid

  18. Those of you bagging on Wilson obviously haven’t seen Denver’s QB play since Manning retired. Wilson could be half as effective as he was a few yrs ago and us Bronco fans would be thrilled.

  19. Oh course, his previous team was “juiced” too. And it got them a 1 year dynasty.

  20. Russell Wilson is a Badger. Of course he will do great in Denver!

    On Wisconsin!

    Varsity!

  21. Why do all these Broncos fans think they’re getting young Wilson ? He’s washed and they’ll be full of regret at years end. -watch

  22. Raiders, Chiefs, and Chargers will fight it out for the division while all beating up on Wilson and the broncos

    >>>Very well said about RW and very true. I am a Seahawk fan and you’re right, he is not the same guy he was in 2014 or 2015. He is older and he has gotten too big. He gained a lot of weight and it has slowed him down significantly. He used to be able to scramble and make spin moves to avoid a sack, but has been chased down by huge, slow defensive lineman.

    As much as I appreciated him helping the organization and community I got tired of his drama of wanting to be traded. I am glad he was traded because if his heart is not in it here and he is just waiting until his contract runs out or a trade, then please leave because it does not help the team. It also helps that we got a lot of draft picks after the disasterous trade for Jamaal Adams. 🙄

    ______________________________________________________________________

    Magic words there are a few years ago, and made the pro bowl. He was the 3rd guy after the ones who made it did not play or could not play. What he really is, is exactly a 3rd WR. When he has to be anything else he does not show up.
