Russell Wilson is 6 years older than the Broncos’ reported new QB coach

The Denver Broncos’ top priority next season will be to get Russell Wilson back to his Pro Bowl level of play. One of the men responsible for doing that won’t exactly be bringing years of coaching experience to the table.

Former New York Giants backup quarterback Davis Webb is retiring to join Sean Payton’s staff as the Broncos’ quarterbacks coach, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. At 28 years old, Webb is six years younger than Wilson, who is 34.

Webb will hang up his cleats after appearing in two games in his career and starting once. That start came in Week 18 of this season, when the Giants opted to rest Daniel Jones since they were locked into the No. 6 seed in the NFC playoffs. He went 23-for-40 for 168 passing yards and one touchdown pass, plus a rushing touchdown.

A third-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft after playing at Texas Tech and Cal in college, Webb spent most of his career on the practice squads of the Giants, New York Jets and Buffalo Bills.

Of course, age and playing experience are hardly the only things that can make a good coach.

Webb was apparently well-regarded enough that the Bills reportedly asked him to consider retirement last year, after he spent two seasons as the team’s third-string quarterback. Buffalo offered him the same quarterbacks coach position he ended up taking with the Broncos.

Giants head coach Brian Daboll effusively praised Webb’s value on the sideline when he followed the coach from the Bill to the Giants instead, calling him “the best teammate I’ve ever seen,” via NJ Advanced Media:

“He’s unbelievable with his teammates in terms of off the field, studying,” Daboll said. “He would meet with Josh (Allen) every Friday night and go through our call sheet and organize it. (He’s a) great sounding board and a really good competitor.”

Webb is also the son of a coach and has reportedly spoken of becoming a coach himself since entering the NFL, per ESPN’s Jordan Ranaan.
