Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is now a Super Bowl winning quarterback who will be in search of a big pay day as he nears the end of his rookie contract, but he is also looking ahead to life after football.

While some players get into coaching or simply live off of their hard-earned money for the rest of their lives, Wilson is looking at a different approach.

If Wilson gets his wish, he will one day be the proud owner of an NFL franchise.

According to the Seattle Times, Wilson has said his goal is to “be an owner of a team someday.”

“I’m looking to get around as many people as I can,” he said of his baseball drop-in. “After playing 20 years, hopefully for the Seahawks, hopefully I can do that.”

After the upcoming season, Wilson will be able to finally start negotiating for a new contract.

When that happens, he will hopefully be paid what he is worth and get some extra money that he can one day use to satisfy another fan base as Owner Wilson.
