Posted By Amanda Borges On February 21, 2014 @ 8:39 AM In Borges - Article,Insider Main,MLB,News and Rumors | No Comments

The Seahawks QB tweeted that he will be attending spring training with the Rangers in Arizona.

 

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.
