The top two quarterbacks from the Kansas City Chiefs 2-14 season now both have found a new team. Nearly a month after Matt Cassel signed with the Minnesota Vikings, Brady Quinn landed with the Seattle Seahawks.
Quinn was signed to be Russell Wilson’s backup after the team also looked at Matt Leinart, Seneca Wallace and another former Chiefs signal caller, Tyler Thigpen.
Once the Seahawks shipped last year’s backup, Matt Flynn, to the Oakland Raiders, they were in need of a replacement. Considering Flynn attempted all of nine passes last season, there’s a good chance Quinn never sees the field in Seattle, even if he does hold onto the backup job.
Though he handled an impossible off-the-field situation with class during a tough season, Quinn was terrible between the lines. In 10 games, the quarterback completed just under 57 percent of his passes while tossing eight interceptions to just two touchdowns. He also was sacked 21 times.
