Wilson, Winston thinking baseball

America's reigning champion quarterbacks are in demand, and not just for media appearances and autographs. Turns out both Russell Wilson and Jameis Winston are pretty good baseball players, and have real options to hit the diamond in their football offseasons. Wilson was selected in the Rule 5 draft by the Texas Rangers, and has the opportunity to report to spring training (his agent says he is uncertain). Winston, meanwhile, made headlines Tuesday by being named a third-team preseason All-American as a Florida State utility man. Should either play/be playing? Who would be better? Will we ever see a two-sport athlete a la Bo Jackson or Deion Sanders?
