Russell Wilson

The Seattle Seahawks’ quarterback was traded from the Texas Rangers to the New York Yankees for future considerations. Texas selected Wilson in the Rule 5 draft in December 2013, two months before he led Seattle to a Super Bowl title. Wilson, 29, was a two-sport athlete at North Carolina State, then played two seasons (2010-11) in the Colorado Rockies’ system, went to Wisconsin as a graduate transfer, led the Badgers to the Rose Bowl, and went to the Seahawks in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft. “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.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback couldn’t play in the Super Bowl, but he still gets a ring — and now his girlfriend has one, too. “She said YES! And now Maddie and I both got us a ring … can’t wait to marry my best friend! God is doing some amazing things and I can’t thank him enough!” Wentz said in a tweet accompanied by a photo spread of Kentucky native Maddie Oberg accepting his marriage proposal. They got engaged at CastlePost, also known as Kentucky Castle. Wentz was the Eagles’ starter until he suffered a season-ending knee injury in December, pressing Nick Foles into the starting role.
