Seahawks Sign Brady Quinn to Back Up Russell Wilson image

The Notre Dame product and former Cleveland Browns #1 draft pick was signed Tuesday after a Monday tryout.

During his season-ending news conference, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he would like to have a backup quarterback whose skill set was closer to that of starter Russell Wilson.


“We’ve talked a lot about that,” Carroll said. “It’d be nice to have another guy that might be able to be a factor that way. So there are some really good kids out there. We’ll see.”


Quinn started 12 games in three seasons with the Browns – where he played under Carl Smith, now the quarterbacks coach for the Seahawks. Quinn was traded to the Denver Broncos in 2010, but did not play in two seasons when Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow were the starters. Quinn, 28, signed with the Chiefs last March and ended up completing a career-best 56.9 percent of his passes (112 of 197) for 1,141 yards with two touchdown passes and eight interceptions while starting eight games.


The Seahawks also tried out quarterbacks Matt Leinart, Tyler Thigpen and Seneca Wallace on Monday, but Quinn was the player signed.
