(NEW YORK) — Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will be in the national spotlight again on Monday night when they host the New Orleans Saints.
Wilson will have the challenge of matching an explosive Saints offense led by quarterback Drew Brees, who he studied throughout his college career.
“Think great quarterback have great leadership, great attention to detail, and they have a relentless competitive nature,” Wilson said this week. “Those three things he brings to the table, so you respect that for sure.”
Brees was asked about Wilson earlier this week.
“Think very highly of him,” Brees said. “There’s plenty of things that guy can do that I can never even dream of doing.”
