Russell Wilson had another poor performance on Sunday evening against the Carolina Panthers.
Wilson completed only 54.3% of his passes for 142 yards and a touchdown as the Broncos fell to 3–8 after a 23–10 loss.
For the season, he is completing only 58.9% of his passes for 2,369 yards, eight touchdowns, and five interceptions.
The level of production that one was expecting from him after he was acquired back in March was not there.
This raised some questions as to whether he could be one and done in Denver.
But NFL Network's Ian Rapoport shrugged it off during a segment on Monday's edition of The Pat McAfee Show.
"Russell Wilson isn't going anywhere because the cap hit would be so astronomical," Rapoport said.
"You can do it but it will set your team back a lot.
I think there will be a coach who says you know I can make this guy work."
End of the season and it is conceivable that this could happen.
They are currently 3-8 and have continued to struggle on offense as the season has progressed.
Denver's hands are tied with Wilson and it will be up to him, as well as a potential new employee, to replace it.
