Reports: Brady Quinn wins Seahawks quarterback tryout

Tuesday April 9th, 2013

Brady Quinn appears to be the winner of the Seahawks' tryout, according to reports

Ian Rapoport of reported Tuesday that the Seahawks are "heading toward" signing Quinn to backup Russell Wilson according to a source after the team worked out four quarterbacks including Matt Leinart, Tyler Thigpen and Seneca Wallace on Monday.

The Seahawks were in the market for a backup quarterback after trading Matt Flynn -- the team's big 2012 free-agent signing who lost his starting job to the rookie Wilson -- to the Raiders on April 1.

Quinn, a first-round draft pick taken out of Notre Dame by the Browns in the 2007 NFL Draft, started 12 games in three seasons in Cleveland and has played as a reserve with the Broncos (2010-11) and last season with the Chiefs. Quinn quarterbacked the Chiefs in their emotional win over the Panthers.
