Although the contract isn’t finalized, Quinn will sign with the Seahawks, Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports.
The Seahawks had been looking for a backup quarterback since trading Matt Flynn to the Raiders last week, and Quinn was believed to be their favorite of the players they had considered, a group that also included Matt Leinart.
Quinn started eight games for the Chiefs last season and did not play well, with just two touchdown passes and eight interceptions. Prior to 2012 he spent two years with the Broncos without ever setting foot on the field during a regular-season game. A first-round draft pick of the Browns in 2007, he started 12 games in three years in Cleveland.
