Russell Wilson is supposedly descended from English royalty
If you think Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has a regal attitude, there may be a good reason.
Wilson was in his hometown of Richmond, Virginia, over the weekend to speak with Harvard historian Henry Louis Gates Jr. about his geneology. According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Gates told Wilson that his ancestors include everyone from slaves to “at least one English king.”
Russell pumped his fist and said, “I knew it.”
The NFL is definitely going to use this as an excuse to have the Seahawks play more games in London.
