Super Bowl QB Russell Wilson going to spring training again

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson greets airline employees and their families on the team's return from the Super Bowl Monday, Feb. 2, 2015, at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in SeaTac, Wash. The Seahawks lost in the Super Bowl to the New England Patriots on Sunday.

ARLINGTON, Texas » Two-time Super Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson will again visit the Texas Rangers during spring training.

Details were still being worked out, but the Seattle Seahawks quarterback is likely to have a similar experience as last year.

"I’m still focused on thinking I still have a game on Sunday," Wilson said Tuesday. "In terms of the Rangers, I’ll probably go down there at some point. I’m not sure when or if I do. But I’m just grateful to be on this football team."

Weeks after Seattle won the Super Bowl last year, Wilson spent a day in Surprise, Arizona. He went through a morning workout with the Rangers, took the lineup card to umpires before a spring training game and sat in the dugout without playing. He also addressed Rangers minor leaguers.

Texas selected Wilson from the Colorado Rockies in the Triple-A portion of baseball’s December draft in 2013. Wilson was a minor league second baseman for parts of two seasons (2010-11) before going back to college to play football. He just finished his third NFL season.
