russell_wilson_2013 [1]TAMPA, Fla. — When Russell Wilson was the starting quarterback at North Carolina State a few years back, he had a consistent message for backup Mike Glennon.

“He used to say, ‘I want you to push me, because that makes me a better player’,” Glennon said. “I think we both felt that way. When he was out there, it was making me a better player because I saw what he could do, and then I was right on his feet right there, trying to get that job from him. I think, ultimately, it made us both better players.”

Both ended up in the NFL. Glennon is a rookie playing for Tampa Bay and Wilson is a second-year player with Seattle. Their teams will meet on Sunday.
