“It’s not really about me, it’s about being surrounded by people who want to put in the work and dedication to it every day,” Wilson told reporters.
“I want to stay here a long time, I believe this is a marriage and I want to stay here a long time. My goal is to be able to finish my career here.”
After a third-round pick for the Seahawks in 2012, Wilson led the franchise in eight postseasons during his decade in the Pacific Northwest.
His accomplishments included two Super Bowl appearances and a championship win in 2014.
In March, Wilson was traded from the Seahawks to the Broncos in a trade that sent shockwaves through the sport.
The deal included two first-round draft picks, two second-rounders, one fifth-rounder, quarterback Drew Lock, defensive tackle Shelby Harris, and tight end Noah Fant.
However, the nine-time pro-bowler has consistently been one of the best quarterbacks in the league and ranks 15th in the all-time list for passing touchdowns with 292.
He has also started in all but three of a possible 177 games since the beginning of his NFL career.
“In just a few short months with the Broncos, Russell has already had a dramatic impact on this organization both on and off the field,” Broncos general manager George Paton said in a statement.
“His leadership, work ethic and championship mentality have helped improve our team in partnership with Coach Hackett, his teammates and staff.”
Wilson and the Broncos will open the new season on September 13 in Seattle against his former team.
