It Pays to Know Russell Wilson at Christmas

It Pays to Know Russell Wilson at Christmas

It pays to know Russell Wilson at Christmas time.

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback has always been well-known for charitable work, as an active volunteer in the city’s community and running the Russell Wilson Passing Academy in several cities every off-season.

But he’s also kind with his family, close friends and team-mates – and provided an example of that over the last few days.

Wilson shared a video on his Instagram account yesterday where he surprised his older brother with a new car.

It was then reported by ESPN that he gave gifts to every one of his team-mates for Christmas, but singled out his offensive linemen, giving them all expensive Movado watches.

Today, Wilson has again shared a picture of the gift his sponsors Braun sent to his offensive linemen for the big day:

It could pay for Wilson to keep his offensive linemen sweet as the Seahawks bid for their third straight Super Bowl appearance.

They’re 9-5 and will be a wild card in the play-offs, but presents at Christmas might help them foster an even greater team spirit as they target San Francisco in February.
