Russell Wilson is a quarterback at the top of his game right now.

He is coming off the back of a Super Bowl winning season with the Seattle Seahawks, and outshone his hero Peyton Manning in the final match up at MetLife Stadium last month.

All this means that the second-year QB is set for a big future on the gridiron and a major contract offer in 2015.

But it seems that the diminutive play-caller has planned even further ahead.

Speaking in an interview with the Washington State Journal, Wilson revealed he wants to be an owner of a franchise when his playing days come to an end:

"I want to be an owner of a team someday, so for me I'm looking to get around as many people as I can."

But don't worry Seahawks fans, he still plans on sticking around at CenturyLink Field for a while yet:

"After playing 20 years, hopefully for the Seahawks, hopefully I can do that (become an owner)," he explained.

At present Wilson is still on a rookie contract which sees the 25-year old bring in a base salary of $662,434 - hardly enough to launch a takeover bid at a major NFL or MLB team as he desires.

But as mentioned, his on field prowess means that Wilson can expect a huge boost to his bank balance in the future, and if he can continue to perform at the very top who knows maybe one day players will be answering to owner Wilson.
