At practice this afternoon in Renton, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was asked about the controversial Nike ad. Wilson, who usually steers clear of controversy, chose to answer the question about the former 49ers quarterback who began a personal protest by taking a knee during the national anthem.
"I haven't seen the Nike commercial. I've seen the ad thing. I think that ultimately us as a country right now we get distracted about so many different things, we're fighting over all the wrong things. I think like I've always said it's really about, it's really about love and grace and how can we make this world a better place and I think that's the intention more than anything else," said Wilson.
