Drew Henson, Chad Hutchinson, Quincy, Carter, Chris Weinke and Brandon Weeden all spent a few years away from football in pursuit of a baseball career.
What was worse for guys like Henson and Hutchinson is that they didn't even get the chance to go back to college and play some more football and then transition to the the NFL. They had to make the jump to the NFL after being away from the game for years.
I would barely put Russell Wilson in the same category as those other QBs.
