Seahawks add quarterback Jake Heaps to practice squad

The Seahawks are adding a quarterback, and the quarterback they’re adding makes it clear they’re confident about Russell Wilson playing this week.

Per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Seahawks are signing Jake Heaps to their practice squad, giving them another live body for practice besides rookie backup Trevone Boykin.

Heaps, who is from the Sammamish, Wash. (which reminds me it’s time for lunch), was in camp with them earlier this offseason.

Heaps was in camp with the Jets last year, and played collegiately at BYU, Kansas and Miami.

Wilson suffered a sprained ankle last week, but he and coach Pete Carroll have insisted he’s fine.

    That O line of the seaFrauds is garbage, like more than in years past. Russell will not play a full season.

    The Rams will have a party in the Seahawks backfield this Sunday…..Russ you better be mobile… might want to load up on that miracle water during the week. Aaron Donald is going to be in a foul mood, but hey who needs to invest in the O-line when you have the messiah under center.
