The New York Yankees will have a Super Bowl winner at camp when spring training begins in February.
Wilson, 30, attended spring training with the Yankees last year, even briefly factoring into a game to take one at-bat - a five-pitch strikeout against Atlanta Braves left-hander Max Fried.
Wilson was drafted twice by MLB clubs - the Baltimore Orioles in 2007 and the Colorado Rockies in 2011 - but he ultimately decided to pursue a career in the NFL, and went to the Seattle Seahawks 75th overall in 2012.
In 2013, the Texas Rangers acquired Wilson's rights from the Rockies via the Rule 5 Draft. Prior to the 2018 season, Wilson's rights were traded to the Yankees - his and his father's favorite team.
The Seahawks were eliminated from the NFL playoffs Saturday after losing to the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC wild-card game.
