3 Of The 4 QB's This Weekend Could Have Played In MLB!

The NFL Playoffs has come down to the final four, and of the four starting quarterbacks, three of them have something unique in common – they were also drafted by Major League Baseball teams.

Peyton Manning is the odd man out. The other three had to choose between football and baseball, and appear to have made the right choice. Tom Brady was drafted as a catcher by the Montreal Expos in 1995. Brady never signed with them, though, as he opted instead to attend the University of Michigan and begin his road to the football hall of fame.

The Seahawks' Russell Wilson was drafted and actually played minor league ball for the Colorado Rockies. In fact, the Texas Rangers currently own his rights should he ever decide to give up football and play second base. And finally, Colin Kaepernick was drafted by the Chicago Cubs as a pitcher in 2009 and appears to have chosen the right path.
