Editor's Note: It was mentioned during this interview that future Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson injured his thumb with the Seattle Seahawks. In fact, it was a middle finger.

On Tuesday, the Broncos acquired Seattle Seahawks' quarterback Russell Wilson in a trade that garnered attention across the league and boosted fans' expectations that the team could come back after several losing seasons. Commentator and former Bronco Ryan Harris has high expectations too.
