PITTSBURGH — Russell Wilson is coming off a stint with the Denver Broncos that should lead the Pittsburgh Steelers to some pause. And while they added him as their likely starter, Wilson’s stint in the Mile High City had its trials and tribulations. So, what went wrong?

Wilson was asked exactly that on Friday at his introductory press conference, and he described the struggles in his first season with lat injury, and in his second season, he felt much better about his level of play.

“I think it’s all about how you look at it,” Wilson said. “In life, a lot of times when things don’t go your way, you can look at it as disappointing [or] you can look at it as growth moments. For me, my first year [in Denver] I had my lat. I was playing on it, pushing through it. Should I have done that? You know, you compete every day. You got to do what you got to do. Everything didn’t go our way. This past year, I felt like myself again. I felt like myself again, so I can’t wait to just put on the cleats and go after it.”
