When the Texans Rangers drafted Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson they knew he would never play baseball for them. But get him to put a uniform on and field some ground balls in spring training and he’ll make you some money.
The Rangers are now making money off Wilson by selling his jersey. There’s nothing wrong with this since he is technically a part of their organization. But let’s not mistake ourselves, this was the plan from the beginning.
Let’s also not forget, Wilson will get a cut of the jersey sales as well. So he’s not complaining.
