Russell Wilson Named Seahawks Starting QB



On Sunday night Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll named rookie Russell Wilson the starting quarterback for the Seahawks.  Seattle plays the Arizona Cardinals on the road week one of the regular season. Wilson while playing for the Wisconsn Badgers last year, set the single season FBS record for passing efficency (191.8) and led the Badgers to a Big Ten title.  Wilson was selected in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft by the Seahawks with the 75th pick overall. Wilson beat out Matt Flynn, who in the off season signed a three-year $19.5 million contract with the Seahawks and Tavaris Jackson, who earlier Sunday was traded to the Buffalo Bills.  Week one of the NFL regular season will see five rookies starting at quarterback. Besides Wilson, the 2012 number one overall draft pick Andrew Luck will start for the Indianapolis Colts, the second overall pick Robert Griffin III will be under center for the Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins Hard Knocks star Ryan Tannehill beat out Matt Moore for his starting job, and 28-year-old rookie Brandon Weedon will be the signal caller for the Cleveland Browns.
