New Steelers quarterback Russell Wilson is having an exciting offseason, as most people would if their former employer was paying them $85 million not to work for them.

Wilson is surely hard at work learning a new playbook and working on ways to revamp one of the league’s most lackluster offenses, but that hasn’t stopped him from taking time to smell the roses and enjoy life along the way.

March Madness is in full effect, and Wilson was spotted last night in Pittsburgh attending the 2nd-round game of his former NC State Wolf Pack.

Wilson is often remembered for his monstrous senior year playing QB for the Wisconsin Badgers in college, but he put up three great years at NC State prior to that.

He struggled with his accuracy at NC State, but still put up gaudy touchdown numbers before taking his game to new heights at Wisconsin with a 72.8 percent completion percentage to go along with 33 touchdowns and just four interceptions.

NC State’s basketball team is white hot coming off a shocking run to win the ACC Tournament, and has now advanced to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament after ousting 14-seeded Oakland in overtime led by another strong performance from big man DJ Burns with 24 points and 11 rebounds.

Wilson picked a great game to attend, as his Wolf Pack advanced to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2015.

NC State now moves on to face the winner of the Marquette Vs. Colorado matchup, where the Wolf Pack will attempt to reach the Elite 8 for the first time since 1986.
