Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times reports that the Seattle Seahawks have explored the idea of acquiring Jets QB Tim Tebow recently, but the team is no longer believed to be considering him. Instead, the Seahawks have turned their attention to quarterbacks such as Seneca Wallace, Tyler Thigpen, Brady Quinn and Matt Leinart. Thigpen and Wallace appear to be the favorites as they would be able to run the zone-read option that Seattle has been employing in recent years. On top of that, their skill set is similar Russell Wilson, so it’s not as though they would be forced to adjust their offensive approach if either of them were forced into action. The Seahawks recently traded backup QB Matt Flynn to Oakland, and have since signed Josh Portis to a two-year contract. As for Tebow, it’s at least somewhat encouraging that an NFL team has explored the idea of trading for him. Before this, it seemed as though he was likely to find no interest whatsoever. He’s set to make $2.58 million for the upcoming season, which is actually a lot of someone who could end up being a third-string quarterback. The Jets do not appear to be anxious to cut him, so it seems likely that he’ll be on their roster for the start of their offseason program.
