Shannon Sharpe Claims Russell Wilson’s Teammates Are ‘Seething’ Because Of His Bad ‘Attitude’: You’re Putting Yourself In Front Of The Team

Ciara’s husband is allegedly being called out by his teammates for his demeanor. 

According to RadarOnline, Russell Wilson was scrutinized this week after having a bad attitude that left his Denver Broncos teammates “seething” on and off the football field. Former Denver Broncos tight end Shannon Sharpe took part in calling out Russell Wilson on Tuesday (Dec. 27) after the NFL star’s team lost to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday (14-51).

Shannon Sharpe’s opinion was shared one day after the Broncos fired their head coach, Nathaniel Hackett, on Monday (Dec. 26) reportedly due to the team’s dreadful 4-11 record. Shannon Sharpe said:

“Let me tell you what the problem is. Russell Wilson has never been a 1-2-3 get rid of the ball. He was very good at improvisation. He was very good…at getting off-script. Russell has lost athleticism.”

The retired NFL player continued:

“Russ cannot outrun anybody!”

The 54-year-old added:

 “So, he can’t make those improvisational plays like he could for those first 10 years in Seattle. You never see Russ get dragged down from behind. Now, Russ don’t look like he could outrun me.”

After sharing his thoughts on the 34-year-old’s current athleticism, Sharpe proceeded to target the Broncos quarterback’s ego and his alleged tendencies of “putting himself in front of the team.” Wilson previously played for the Seattle Seahawks for ten seasons before being traded to the Broncos in March for a five-year, $245 million contract extension. Sharpe explained:

“I don’t know who the head coach is gonna be, but the first thing you do: ‘Russell Wilson, I’m locking this office. You will no longer have an office. All those parking spaces you get the stadium, they’re gone too — because you’re putting yourself in front of the team.'”

He continued and expressed that Wilson’s teammates are turned off by his “attitude.” 

“I said it before, I’ll say it again, and I stand by it: You ticked a lot of people off with your attitude, bro, you can come out here and talk about how we’re a team and I’m good with my teammates, but deep down inside, they’re seething, and I’m gonna leave it at that.”

Wilson has been married to singer/dancer Ciara since July 2016, and the pair share two children together, Win Harrison Wilson and Sienna Princess Wilson. Ciara also shares one child, Future Wilburn, with rapper Future. As previously reported, Ciara and Future were engaged in 2013 but she ended their engagement in August 2014 after rumors about Future’s infidelity.
