Seahawks QB Wilson To Report To Rangers Spring Training In AZ

Seattle Seahawks vs Denver Broncos, Super Bowl XLVIII

It sure is good to be Seahawks starting QB Russell Wilson these days, as just two days after winning the first title for Seattle, now the QB is tackling another sport.

He’ll go to spring training with the Texas Rangers in Surprise, AZ according to Fox Sports.

Wilson was picked by the Rangers in the December Rule 5 draft after he was left unprotected by the Colorado Rockies.

The QB was once a minor league infielder with the Rockies. He hasn’t played baseball since 2011, but Mark Rodgers, Wilson’s baseball agent told Fox Sports he’ll report to camp with the Rangers.

“It was something we put a lot of thought into,” said Josh Boyd, the Rangers’ director of professional scouting.

“It was the chance to add a player we feel is very special, a very unique leader. Everything he preaches and goes out on the field and executes is something we feel embodies everything in our philosophy, things we preach at the minor league level up to the big league level.”

It’s a long shot that anything will come out of it – but give Wilson credit for keeping his options open!
