SEATTLE — It’s been a busy week for Russell Wilson.

His son, Win Harrison Wilson, was born last Thursday, he started his ninth NFL training camp on Tuesday and last night he was voted the second-best player in the annual NFL Top 100 list as voted by his peers.  

The top 10 of the list was unveiled on NFL Network last night. Wilson was beat out by only reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson.

Five other Seahawks joined Wilson on the top 100 list: linebacker Bobby Wagner (No. 13), safety Jamal Adams (No. 27), wide receiver Tyler Lockett (No. 65), wide receiver DK Metcalf (No. 81) and running back Chris Carson (No. 96).

Free agent defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who played for the Seahawks last year, was ranked 41st overall.

The second-place finish for Wilson was the highest for any Seahawks in the 10 years of the NFL Top 100.

Wilson led the Seahawks to an 11-5 record and the Divisional Round of the NFC Playoffs last year. In 16 games, he threw for 4,110 yards with 31 touchdowns and a career-low five interceptions.

The Seahawks began training camp for the 2020-21 season Tuesday. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, players have yet to take the field and won’t have a padded practice until at least Aug. 17.
