When ESPN's Adam Schefter initially reported Wilson's deal with the Steelers, Travis supported the move in a prior episode of New Heights. "Shoutout to Russ, man. Get another new start," he said after his brother Jason read the report.

"He had a similar situation in Seattle," Travis continued. "Great defense. Get you a run game. Got Najee Harris in there to hand that ball off to and got a young tight end in Pat [Freiermuth]."
