Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is going back to spring training with the New York Yankees.

I know a lot of people get a kick out of Wilson going to spring training, but I absolutely hate it.
It’s good PR for the Yanks, but it’s a waste of time for Wilson. The Seahawks pay him to win Super Bowls. I’m not sure how attending Yankees training in Florida helps the Seahawks get better.

Spoiler alert: it doesn’t.

I’m saying this as a massive Russell Wilson fan, he needs to drop this whole baseball shtick. He is never going to play in the majors.
It’s simply not going to happen. He’s a superstar NFL quarterback, and to pretend this is anything other than a waste of time just means that we’re not being honest with ourselves.
I want him on the field practicing and getting reps with his offense. I don’t want him down in Florida throwing baseballs around.
