ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that Seattle Seahawks have free agent Tyler Thigpen on their “short list” of backup quarterback options. Jason La Canfora mentioned that this was idea to keep an eye on a few days ago. The Seahawks have agreed to trade Matt Flynn to the Raiders for two draft picks, so they’re clearly in need of a backup quarterback. Previous reports indicated that the Seahawks would like to find a backup who possesses a similar skill set to that of Russell Wilson. Thigpen, 28, would not only be a cheap option for Seattle to consider, but he also has experience running the read-option. We’ll have to see if they seriously pursue him in the coming days or possibly target a developmental prospect in the upcoming draft.
