The Rangers selected Wilson in the Minor League phase of the Rule 5 Draft at the Winter Meetings last December. The Rangers paid $12,000 to take him from the Rockies organization, where he was a Minor League infielder in 2010-11.
The Rangers don't expect him to give up football but they do see benefits of having a championship professional athlete around their young players even if it is only for a few weeks.
