Russell Wilson traded his Seattle Seahawks uniform for a Texas Rangers one on Saturday, as the two-time Super Bowl quarterback joined the club in Surprise, Ariz.
Wilson, whose Seahawks lost to the Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1, made his second Spring Training visit with the Rangers. He participated in the team's morning workout, but won't play in the 4:05 p.m. ET game against the Padres.
Wilson was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the fourth round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft and spent two years in the Minors before returning to football for his final collegiate season at Wisconsin in 2011. The former infielder batted .229 with five homers and 26 RBIs through 93 games with Class A Short Season Tri-City and Class A Asehville.
During his rookie season with the Seahawks in 2013, Wilson was selected by the Rangers in the MLB Rule 5 Draft.
