The Seahawks took a look at four quarterbacks on Monday in their search for a backup to Russell Wilson. Today, they settled on one: Brady Quinn.
The former first-round draft choice of the Browns agreed to terms with the Seahawks today.
The club also had Matt Leinart, Seneca Wallace and Tyler Thigpen in for workouts and visits. Leinart, the 10th pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, played for Seahawks coach Pete Carroll at USC; while Wallace played seven seasons for the Seahawks after being a fourth-round draft choice in 2003.
But in the end, it was Quinn, who entered the league as the 22nd pick in the 2007 draft by the Browns and also has been with the Broncos (2010-11) and Chiefs (2012). He passed for 1,141 yards last season while making eight starts for Kansas City, but had two touchdown passes compared to eight interceptions.
The Seahawks were looking for a backup to Wilson, a third-round draft choice last year, after Matt Flynn was traded to the Raiders last week. The club also re-signed Josh Portis last week.
