The Denver Broncos and quarterback
Russell Wilson reportedly haven’t entered formal negotiations about a
contract extension despite confirmation from both sides they’re
hoping for a long-term partnership following his arrival from the
Seattle Seahawks.

Jeff Howe of The Athletic reported
Friday the “general acknowledgment” of interest from both Wilson
and the Broncos is the extent of the situation so far, though the
discussions could heat up after the team’s ownership change is
approved, which is expected in August.

“We want him here a long time,” Broncos general manager George Paton said. “We didn’t give up all
we gave up for him to be here for two years, that’s for sure. Any
contract talks with any of our players, we just keep in-house.”

Wilson added: “I’m excited to be
here for a long time, and I think that will definitely happen so
we’ll see where it goes.”

The nine-time Pro Bowl selection is
under contract through 2023 as part of a four-year, $140 million deal
he signed with Seattle.
