Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has announced that he and his wife Ashton are divorcing, via a statement released by the team on Wednesday.

Wilson said the decision was not easy and respectfully asks for "prayers and understanding and privacy during this difficult time."

The couple was married in January 2012 after his final college football season at Wisconsin and prior to his being drafted by the Seahawks with the 12th pick of the third round.

Wilson quarterbacked the Seahawks to a win over the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII in his second NFL season.
