Russell Wilson won’t be officially released until the start of the new league year, but he’s effectively already hit the open market.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Denver has given Wilson permission to start talking and meeting with other teams in his hometown.

The Broncos announced earlier in the week that they would release Wilson. Due to capital implications, the club will not make the transfer official until next week.

Wilson, 35, completed 66.4 percent for a career-low 3,070 yards with 26 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

It is not clear what will be the market for Wilson’s services. But since the Broncos are on the hook for his 2024 salary, Wilson could take the Patriots’ minimum deal with the new team.

Either way, Wilson is now available to meet with any team that wants to get him.
