The Yankees have already added superstar Giancarlo Stanton this offseason, and Wednesday, they added another.
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson’s rights were traded from the Rangers to the Yankees in exchange for “future considerations”.
Wilson had previously spent some time in spring training with the Rangers in 2014 and 2015, and has said in the past he’d love to play for the Yankees.
He did say he has no plans in being the next Deion Sanders or Bo Jackson.
“While football is my passion and my livelihood, baseball remains a huge part of where I came from and who I am today,” Wilson said in a statement. “I’ve learned so much on the baseball field that translates to my game physically and mentally playing quarterback in the NFL. I thank the Rangers and their great fans for making me feel at home and a part of the family! While I embrace the chance to be a New York Yankee, I will forever be grateful to have been a part of a world-class organization like the Texas Rangers.”
