SEATTLE -

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife, Ashton have filed for divorce.

The couple married in January of 2012, but in a statement released by the Seahawks Wednesday afternoon, Wilson says "I have made the difficult decision to file for divorce".

"Clearly, decisions like these don't come easy. 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."

They were married in Richmond, Virginia in January of 2012 just a few months before Wilson was drafted in the third round by Seattle.
