Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson wants more professional sports in the northwest.
The 2014 Super Bowl champion announced Friday that he and his wife, Grammy winner Ciara, are joining the Portland Diamond Project, a local management group focused on bringing a Major League Baseball team to the city of Portland, Oregon. Wilson and his wife have signed on as owners and investors.
MLB commissioner Rob Manfred has listed Portland among cities the league is potentially looking to expand to.
His future in baseball might instead be in in the owner’s box. Which honestly sounds a lot less exhausting.
