The Texas Rangers have drafted Russell Wilson

Specifically, they took him from the Colorado Rockies in the Rule 5 draft. Read the whole piece -- it's great -- but here's some of the highlights.

The Rangers know Wilson is settling in to a successful career as the signal-caller for a Super Bowl contender. But they like Wilson's character and athletic ability, and even if baseball isn't in Wilson's future, the Rangers want him around. . . .

"We talk to our scouts about the makeup we want of our players and the work ethic it takes to win, and Russell Wilson has been an example of that," [Rangers GM Jon] Daniels said. "He has off-the-charts character and focus." . . .

"Everything you see and read about him and seeing him play on Sundays, you hear about the work ethic, the person," Rangers assistant general manager A.J. Preller said. "I think that's going to be a positive message for all of our players in our system, our coaches, everybody to have somebody like that around."
