Russell Wilson will attend spring training with the Yankees

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will report to the Yankees' complex in Tampa, Fla. for spring training, his agent told MLB Network's Jon Morosi on Thursday.

Wilson was a dual-sport athlete back in college, and was eventually drafted in the fourth round of the Major League Baseball draft by the Colorado Rockies. If you remember, past year Wilson attended spring training with the New York Yankees and even got to play in a game. He was selected in the fourth round of the 2010 draft. Prior to the 2018 season, Wilson's rights were traded to the Yankees - his and his father's favorite team.

Wilson was selected to this year's Pro Bowl game after throwing for 3,448 yards and 35 touchdowns this season with a 110.9 passer rating.

The six-time Pro Bowl QB might have been a baseball player if his football career didn't flourish after the Seahawks picked him in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

The Yankees open spring training when pitchers and catchers report to Tampa, Fl., on February 13. He probably won't report February 18 along with position players.
