The Seahawks added some depth in the secondary on Monday and they may need to add some at quarterback as well.
Coach Pete Carroll said Monday, via Curtis Crabtree of PFT, that quarterback Tarvaris Jackson is going to be off the field for a while after suffering a high ankle sprain in the team’s preseason opener on Friday night. Jackson was injured when he took a hit in the third quarter of the game and needed assistance to get off the field.
R.J. Archer is the only other quarterback listed on the depth chart, but Carroll said that wide receiver and one-time quarterback B.J. Daniels will serve as the team’s No. 3 this week with Jackson out of the lineup. That’s hardly an ideal scenario, of course, so Carroll said that the team will also be considering options outside the organization to shore up the position.
Former Seahawk Matt Flynn is on the list of experienced free agent quarterbacks with the likes of Rex Grossman, Michael Vick and Tyler Thigpen. If the Seahawks do sign someone, they’ll need better play than they got from their offensive line against the Broncos if they’re going to like their chances of avoiding their appearance in a meaningful game.
