With Seattle trading Matt Flynn to the Raiders Monday, they are in need of a quarterback to back up Russell Wilson.


ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that the Seahawks plan to re-sign Josh Portis, who has been Seattle’s third-string quarterback for much of the past two years, as the team continues searching for a backup for Russell Wilson.

Mortensen reported Monday evening that the Seahawks are also looking at veteran Vince Young as a possible backup quarterback. The former Tennessee starter, who was the backup in Philadelphia last year, joins Tyler Thigpen and Matt Leinart on the list of possible veterans Seattle is considering.

Portis is currently on the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.
