It’s not unusual for quarterbacks to play baseball also. Florida State’s Heisman winning quarterback Jameis Winston also plays baseball for the Noles and was selected to the All-American team. Though it will be impossible to play both professionally at the same time, Wilson is keeping his options open. Don’t worry though Seahawks fans, he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
