The Seattle Seahawks released a statement today sharing information that QB Russell Wilson was getting divorced. Weird that the team would share that information, but the team did and Wilson is asking for privacy on the manner.
“I have made the difficult decision to file for divorce,” it read. “Clearly, decisions like these don’t come easy. Ashton and I respectfully ask for prayers, understanding and privacy during this difficult time. Moving forward, I will have no further comment on this personal matter.” – Pro Football Talk
Interesting that the team published that information to the fans, but with Wilson’s popularity the word would have been on the street soon. It might have been best to keep the word in house as long as possible and then make a statement when things started to leak, but either way, it is not a fun situation and is something that Wilson and the team will have to deal with.
