Seahawks Wilson One of the NFL’s Most Liked Players
According to Forbes Magazine, the Seattle quarterback is better liked than Peyton Manning, Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, Troy Polamalu and Victor Cruz.
The business magazine reported that in a survey by the California research firm E-Poll, Wilson was ranked as the fifth most liked player in the National Football League. 59 per cent of respondents said they like Wilson or like him a lot.
“Undersized quarterback spent much of his rookie season last year in the long shadows cast by Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck,” Forbes wrote of the 24-year-old Seattle QB. “But a pair of impressive postseason games, including a head-to-head win over Griffin in Washington, helped Wilson get his national due.”
In the top-10 list Forbes published earlier this week, Wilson trailed just Aaron Rodgers (No. 4), Drew Brees, Adrian Peterson and Larry Fitzgerald (No. 1) among the most-liked players in the league.
