Undersized, underpaid QB gets noticed by heartless capitalists;
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been drafted by the Texas Rangers to play baseball.
The Rangers ended baseball’s winter meetings at Walt Disney World in Florida with that bombshell, selecting Wilson in what is known as the Triple-A Rule 5 draft.
Wilson played some minor league baseball with the Colorado Rockies.Wilson's NFL contract pays him about $600,000 per year. This is about opportunity cost.
