Seven-time Pro Bowler. Super Bowl champion. 2019 NFL MVP candidate.

Russell Wilson is known for his lengthy list of accomplishments as the Seattle Seahawks star quarterback, but he's also a businessman off the field. He recently added part owner of Major League Soccer's Seattle Sounder F.C. to his portfolio.

While partaking in activities leading up to the NFL Pro Bowl on Sunday, Wilson was asked about LA Galaxy's recent acquisition of Javier "Chicarito" Hernandez.

"Well obviously Chicarito is an amazing player," Wilson said in a video via the Seahawks Twitter page. "I'm a Sounders guy though. I have ownership in the Sounders, Ciara and I. We want to make sure we get the best players in the world in Seattle. Any of the best soccer players in the world, Seattle's the place."

The Sounders came across Wilson's video and of course, they had the best response.

"He can do it all, folks." Yes, Sounders F.C. he can.
