Longsnapper United: Wilson, Two-Sport Athlete?

Wilson has been playing baseball this Spring.

Following a Super Bowl victory, nobody expected to see QB Russell Wilson on the diamond.

Wilson was drafted by the Texas Rangers in December. Wilson did have a two-season minor league career at one point.

Wilson participated in a Rangers’ Spring Training outing before returning to football. Wilson will throw the Rangers’ first pitch on April 2 to rev up their season.

However, two-sport legend Bo Jackson said that Wilson should solely play football because “if you try to concentrate on two sports, I guarantee you’re going to ride the bench in both because the talent is that deep.”

While Wilson’s second baseball career is viewed as a brief offseason break, it is unlikely that any athlete can have success in both the NFL and the MLB with the demands of modern professional sports.
