It’s been a rough year for Russell Wilson and he was extremely emotional after the team’s latest loss.
While speaking to the media on Sunday, Wilson teared up while talking about his teammates having his back on social media despite the team’s struggles this year.
“It meant the world to me,” Wilson said. “It meant the world to me because I give my all every day. I don’t know anything less. So, I’m grateful for these guys because they’ve worked their butts off.”
Russell Wilson got a little emotional when asked about what it meant to him that Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, etc. had his back this week:
"It meant the world to me, because I give my all every day. I don't know anything else. … All I want to do is help this team win."

Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Garett Bolles are among the Broncos players that defended Wilson earlier his week on social media.
I ain’t gonna keep looking at these false statements about my boii russ man, as a teammate who sees the elite work ethic this man has is incomparable. He got an office because he’s committed his life to this game. I never had a teammate who motivate me more then russ 💯 https://t.co/G8sTe3Hllg

3 goes above and beyond to do whatever it takes to win for the team. Y’all not about to bash him and act like he still ain’t that same Russ who won a Super Bowl and was a 9 time pro bowler. I stand behind my QB 🏽🤞🏾love u 3 https://t.co/731VuHfiNK
