The Seattle Seahawks will add another backup quarterback not named Colin Kaepernick.
NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Seattle will re-sign Austin Davis, according to a source informed of the situation. The QB will get a veteran minimum deal, per Garafolo.
Davis won the Seahawks backup gig last season. He appeared in three games, attempting zero passes in 2017.
The 28-year-old clipboard holder last started a game in 2015 with the Cleveland Browns. Davis once started eight games for the Rams back in 2014, completing 63.4 percent of his passes with 12 TDs and nine interceptions in his only significant campaign.
On Friday, when the Seahawks added Stephen Morris as the only backup to Russell Wilson, we noted Seattle would continue to add arms as offseason workouts begin. Most teams carry three to four passers through the summer. The Seahawks now have three signed.
Garafolo was told signing Davis won't end the team's talks with Kaepernick. Last week it became known that the Seahawks postponed a scheduled workout with Kaepernick until they know more about his stance on matters related to the national anthem, his collusion lawsuit against the NFL and his other positions against social injustice.
