Wilson not shy in addressing domestic violence

RENTON, Wash. (AP) -

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said he didn't feel he needed to shy away from addressing domestic violence in his first column for Derek Jeter's new website.

Wilson spoke Friday about his "Why Not You Foundation" and his "Pass The Peace" initiative with the goal of helping raise funds to support victims of domestic violence. When asked why he chose to address a topic at the forefront of conversation currently, Wilson said, "You know what's right, you know what's wrong and I don't think you need to shy away from it."

Wilson went more than 10 minutes into his weekly availability talking about his foundation and the response to his first column for Jeter's new site, "The Players' Tribune," before he was asked a football-related question.
