Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson announced through the team Wednesday that he is filing for divorce from his wife of two years.

Wilson married his wife Ashton in April 2012, shortly before the Seahawks selected him in the third round of the draft.

“Clearly, decisions like these don’t come easy,” Wilson said in a statement. “Ashton and I respectfully ask for prayers, understanding and privacy during this difficult time. Moving forward, I will have no further comment on this personal matter.”
