While the quarterback wheel spins, sending unwanted parts to other places, the Seahawks suddenly have a vacancy.
At the moment, the only quarterback on the roster is Russell Wilson, but that might not be the case for long.
According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, former Bills backup Tyler Thigpen is on the “short list” for the Seattle backup job.
To be fair, it doesn’t take much to lead the short list of available veteran quarterbacks. Unless someone wants Brady Quinn or Matt Leinart, one of the old Pittsburgh old guys (Byron Leftwich or Charlie Batch) or the lesser McCowns and Palmers (Luke and Jordan), there’s not a lot to choose from.
Thigpen has some run-around ability, and would be a logical fit for the Seahawks, but they’d need to invest again there. Then again, they’ve shown they can invest wisely, after drafting Wilson in the third round last year.
