Seattle QB Russell Wilson opens up about past and hopes to help domestic violence victims

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is speaking out about domestic violence and about being a bully as a child in a column for Derek Jeter's new website.

Wilson was announced as a senior editor for The Players' Tribune on Thursday morning. Wilson's article talks about his goal of raising funds and awareness through his new foundation with an initial focus on supporting victims of domestic violence.

Wilson also writes about being a bully in elementary and middle school, saying "I had a lot of anger that I didn't know what to do with." Wilson wrote he changed at age 14 "and was able to start living for others instead of just myself."

Wilson writes that the aggression of the game needs to be limited to the field.
