RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Russell Wilson’s offseason included events on both coasts wedged between preparations for trying to defend a Super Bowl title.

It’s been hectic, but Wilson said Monday after the Seattle Seahawks began week two of organized team activities that it hasn’t been difficult balancing offseason commitments with the need to get ready for the upcoming season.

Wilson said his focus for the offseason program is working on his fundamentals and trying to stay balanced on each of his throws.

While the OTAs are the first time offenses and defenses can go against each other in 11-on-11s, Wilson took a group of wide receivers, running backs and tight ends to Southern California in the early spring for workouts for a second straight year.
