Ahead of Monday night's clash between the two sides, Wilson spoke of his huge admiration for Brees - a player whom he studied intensely while he was in college.
Wilson told reporters: "I followed Drew Brees a lot. I followed his college career and I remember my dad telling me I have to watch this guy, because he is awesome. I think he threw 89 passes against the University of Wisconsin, where I went.
"I watched him when he was with the San Diego Chargers and I really started following him a lot there, studying him, his footwork and what he does.
"I admire his leadership, his attention to detail and competitive nature. He is very poised in big situations. He is a great dude and playing with him in the Pro Bowl was a special moment for me."
Both the Seahawks and the Saints lead their respective divisions, with many experts tipping the sides to meet in the Super Bowl-deciding NFC Championship game.
