Renton, WA (Sports Network) - The Seattle Seahawks agreed to terms with
quarterback Brady Quinn on Tuesday.
Quinn, 28, posted a career-high 56.9 completion percentage, but had just two
touchdowns against eight interceptions while throwing for 1,141 yards in 10
games -- eight starts -- for the Chiefs last season. When Kansas City traded
for Alex Smith on February 27, Quinn became expendable.
Prior to joining the Chiefs, he was on the Broncos roster for two seasons, but
was a backup to Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow and did not play.
Selected by the Browns as the 22nd overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, Quinn
has thrown for 3,043 yards with 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions over six
The Seahawks had been searching for a backup quarterback since trading Matt
Flynn to the Raiders on April 1. Other quarterbacks that the team was
interested in were Seneca Wallace, who served as backup to Matt Hasselbeck in
Seattle from 2003-09, former Heisman winner and first-round draft pick Matt
Leinart, and Tyler Thigpen.
All four quarterbacks visited Seattle on Monday before the team eventually
decided on Quinn.
