“Struggling” is probably the nicest way to explain how the Denver Broncos have played. At 2-5, the Broncos are last in the AFC West and their new star quarterback hasn’t exactly inspired confidence.

Apart from filming corny Subway commercials, Russell Wilson arrived in Denver looking to show the Seattle Seahawks they made a mistake in trading the 33-year-old Super Bowl champion. Instead, Wilson has struggled. It’s not all his fault. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett seems to struggle with the basics of coaching and the entire team needs an overhaul, but Wilson has five touchdowns and three interceptions with 1,442 passing yards in six games.

The Broncos are heading to London to face the Jacksonville Jaguars and Wilson apparently isn’t wasting a moment on the long flight across the Atlantic.

According to Zac Stevens of The DNVR, he noted that Wilson was working out while on the flight. Wilson reportedly spent half the flight working out and “doing high knees in the aisle.”

That’s certainly unusual, and I would argue that an appropriate amount of sleep is also helpful, but if Wilson thinks this helps him then more power to him. Everyone else took notice at the latest from the NFL’s “king of cringe.”
