C’mon, you had to see this coming. The Rangers announced yesterday that they will begin selling Russell Wilson merchandise to coincide with his upcoming appearance at Rangers camp:

Replica home white jerseys and red and royal t-shirts with “Wilson” and “3” on the back will be available at the Surprise Stadium merchandise stores beginning on Sunday, when the Rangers host the Chicago White Sox at 1:05 p.m. MT.

Replica home white jerseys, royal and “Seahawk Green” t-shirts with “Wilson” and “3” on the back will also go on sale this Sunday at the Texas Rangers Team Shops at Globe Life Park in Arlington (open Sunday from 12 noon-5:00 p.m. CT) and Fort Worth (open Sunday 12 noon-6:00 p.m. CT). The merchandise will also be available at the Rangers Team Shop in Dallas, which is closed Sunday but opens on Monday at 10:00 a.m. CT.

Wilson is expected to participate in drills and sit in the dugout for Monday’s Cactus League game against the Indians, but Rangers manager Ron Washington told reporters earlier this week that there’s “no way” he’ll be used in the game. The Rangers mostly hope that the Superbowl winning quarterback can pass along some words of wisdom to the team’s players while making them a little bit of money too. Hey, the Rangers paid a $12,000 fee to take him from the Rockies in December’s Rule 5 Draft, so can’t blame them.

    I am just wondering what is going to happen when they don’t put him on the 25 man roster and have to send him back to Colorado.

      Minor league Rule 5. No roster restrictions.

    And now you know the only reason they drafted him.

      Actually Wilson’s minor league coach is now on the Rangers staff. He has an unbelievable work ethic. Rangers hoping this would be a good example for other Ranger players. They drafted him before the NFL playoffs had ever started. Not like they knew he would be a SB champion.

        Yes, because before this year’s NFL Playoffs, no one knew who Russell Wilson was. They didn’t have to draft him to bring him to camp to be an influence on their young players. They could have just invited him to work with them. They DID have to draft him and have him on the roster at least for a little while to sell Jerseys with his name on the back.

    Mariners blew this big time. He would have out sold Cano.

    Wilson…. Not great at football or baseball. He is surrounded by an awesome D

      The ‘awesome D’ on the Seahawks call Russell Wilson ‘Danger-Russ’.

    I didn’t know being surrounded by awesome D made Wilson throw for 52 TDs in his first 2 seasons, tied with Peyton Manning for second all time behind Dan Marino. He’s also the only QB in NFL history to start his first two seasons with a 100+ passer rating.

    Just enjoy your teams SB win with a QB who is rapidly being exposed. Wilson is a non factor for a very good team

  7. yousuxxors - Mar 2, 2014 at 12:52 AM

    Wilson barely throws the ball so comparing him to Marino or manning is dumb.

    Seahawks= Doormats of the NFL since 1976
    WOW!!! 1 Lombardi!!
    It only took 30+ years to get one
