Russell Wilson is expected to suit up for the Texas Rangers Monday March 3rd as he potentially plans pursue baseball at a professional level for the second time in his life. 

It's understood that the Seattle Seahawks quarterback will be in uniform for the Rangers exhibition game versus the Cleveland Indians.

Whether Wilson will make an official field or plate appearance remains to be seen, with no confirmation as of yet.

NFL on ESPN posted on Twitter, "Texas Rangers announce Seahawks QB Russell Wilson will work out with team Monday and be in uniform for spring training game vs CLE."

The Seahawks NFL quarterback was originally selected by the Colorado Rockies in the 2010 MLB Draft.

However, the Rangers made his acquisition for the fee of $12,000.

These movements have all brought about the notion that Wilson will soon become a two-sport pro-athlete.

Wilson's agent, Mark Rodgers, has denied this though in the past though saying that the Rangers draft decision "has very little consequence to Russell or the Seahawks.

Things may be about to change though and we will wait and see what Wilson decides to do.
