Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been a busy man since helping Seattle win Super Bowl XLVIII earlier this month, and after making the rounds on various talk shows he’s joining the Texas Rangers at spring training in Arizona.

The Rangers announced Wednesday that Wilson, a Rule-5 Draft pick by Texas this year, is expected to work out with the big-league squad on Monday and suit up for a Cactus League game that afternoon in Surprise, Ariz. It’s not clear whether Wilson will play in the game, though it seems unlikely.

Wilson spent two seasons as a second baseman in the Rockies’ minor-league system and was selected by Texas in the Rule-5 Draft during the winter meetings in December. The team has said it values the message Wilson can send to the organization’s younger players.
