07:28 AM ET 12.13 | On the surface, it makes little sense that the Texas Rangers would select Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in the Rule 5 draft. This wasn't simply a case of the Rangers wanting a little publicity or paying a decent price for a motivational speaker. (Though they'll get publicity now, and again in February or March, if Wilson does come to spring training.) [Jon Daniels talked to Wilson on Thursday] morning and made it a point to tell him the club isn't trying to distract him and won't be bothering him until after the football season. But Wilson is excited he was drafted and told Daniels he wants to come to spring training. If the QB does, I'd expect him to do more than walk around and chat with the players like some dignitary.
