Steelers QB Russell Wilson reveals major personal update

This bodes well for the upcoming season!

It was one of the bigger standouts of the offseason when the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to completely overhaul their quarterback room, trading Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles while also allowing Mason Rudolph and Mitchell Trubisky to walk via free agency. 

In their place, they've brought aboard Russell Wilson, who was released from the Denver Broncos after two underwhelming seasons. Additionally, they've also brought in former Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields to compete with Wilson for the starting job. 

For Wilson, who has earned plenty of derision after his performance with the Broncos, his latest update will make Steelers fans optimistic about the upcoming campaign. 

"Man, I feel the fountain of youth," Wilson said. "I feel revived in every way, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I feel confident. I think at some point you have to know who you are as a player, as a man, as a competitor. As somebody who's been fortunate to be able to play this game, I don't doubt it. I trust it. I felt really good last year playing. I felt really confident in the midst of everything. And so I think right now I have all that confidence times 10."

"This past year I felt like myself again," Wilson said in March. "And so I can't wait to just put on the cleats and go after it."

As far as new Steelers offensive coordinator Arthur Smith is concerned, having a veteran like Wilson will make his job all the more easier.

"It's probably easier than if you get a job like this and there's a guy that's maybe been here 10 years," he said. "They may have a certain way they've done things. ... We're all new. And so that's been fun."
