Seahawks’ Wilson has father etched into his heart

Seattle cornerback Josh Wilson only has one tattoo, a depiction of his father’s football card inked directly over his heart. His father, Tim, played in the NFL for eight years and died in 1996 , when Wilson was 11 years old.

Danny O’Neil of The Seattle Times writes that Wilson has his dad’s toughness and at only 5-foot-9, is a first-year starter in Seattle’s secondary.

“Teams are going to target Wilson,” writes O’Neil. “San Francisco did. Isaac Bruce caught a 33-yard pass behind Wilson in Week 2. So did the New York Giants three weeks later, when New York picked on Wilson so often he ended up with 11 tackles.” More
