Russell Wilson has been traded...to the New York Yankees. https://t.co/EErzKO9Ph9— Field Yates (@FieldYates) February 7, 2018
- Ciara husband and Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has been traded from the Texas Rangers to the New York Yankees, where he will be assigned to their Double-A team and partcipate in the Yankees spring training camp in Florida.
- Wilson played football and baseball in college, and was drafted by the Orioles after high school and by the Rockies while in college. He’s always wanted to play for the Yankees, and when you have 27 rings, why not run spring training fantasy camp?
- The Yankees now have a better QB than the NY Giants, Jets, and Mets.
- This is one of the most noteworthy off-season moves this winter, coming at a time when fans are grumbling about tanking, and players (even ones who’ve already got their payday) about billionaire owners colluding to drive free agent contracts down.
