Russell Wilson on the Seahawks quarterbacks: We call ourselves “The Jackson 5″

We call ourselves “The Jackson 5.” I play the role of Michael Jackson. It’s not that Coach Carroll and John Schneider purposely did that. They put the best guys they could find on the roster to help the Seahawks win. But really, considering the history of the league and the quarterback position, how crazy is it that one team has five quarterbacks in camp, and all are African-American?

Their nickname will soon mean nothing, since the Seahawks will likely go into the season with only three quarterbacks.
