The wheels of the NFL never stop turning, but not many people saw the franchise quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks being traded on Tuesday as Russell Wilson is off to join the Denver Broncos.
When the surprises hit is when #NFLTwitter and #WeirdTwitter combine to get the best of these jokes off. Because no major sports transaction is official until you’ve seen two or three well-crafted jokes with a gif.
We’ve got a few of them below and will keep adding the best ones we see, but this came out of nowhere.
The Broncos seem happy.
You’ll never know if you don’t ask.
