Reports: Brady Quinn wins Seahawks quarterback tryout

NFL

Brady Quinn appears to be the winner of the Seahawks’ tryout, according to reports

Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported Tuesday that the Seahawks are “heading toward” signing Quinn to backup Russell Wilson according to a source after the team worked out four quarterbacks including Matt Leinart, Tyler Thigpen and Seneca Wallace on Monday.

The Seahawks were in the market for a backup quarterback after trading Matt Flynn — the team’s big 2012 free-agent signing who lost his starting job to the rookie Wilson — to the Raiders on April 1.

Quinn, a first-round draft pick taken out of Notre Dame by the Browns in the 2007 NFL Draft, started 12 games in three seasons in Cleveland and has played as a reserve with the Broncos (2010-11) and last season with the Chiefs. Quinn quarterbacked the Chiefs in their emotional win over the Panthers.

Why do they keep showing Ian Rappoport's retweets????  Just show the original tweet if you need to.

Brady must be incredible at auditions.  Don't get why he never stuck, he's had plenty of opportunities, but you'd think out of that group the guy who should've won it is Seneca Wallace since his game is very much like Russell Wilson....he was Wilson about five years before Wilson was Wilson, lol, just not as good on the pro level.  In college dude was a stud though.

Matt Leinart couldn't hit his own fanny with either hand.  Every time I see him I see Ryan Leaf.  Whiner, complainer, and grossly overrated.
