Seattle Seahawks Are Signing A Veteran Quarterback This Thursday

The Seattle Seahawks are bolstering their quarterback depth this Thursday afternoon. The NFC West franchise is signing a veteran quarterback to their practice squad. That player is 30-year-old Sean Mannion. 

The Seahawks are reportedly signing Sean Mannion to their practice squad. He joins a quarterback room in Seattle that already features starter Geno Smith, backup Drew Lock. Mannion adds more veteran experience to that group. 

Mannion has been in the League since 2015 when he was taken in the third round by the Los Angeles Rams. Prior, he played several years at Oregon State. Now, he heads back to the Pacific Northwest to play for the Seahawks. Most recently he played for the Vikings. 

"The #Seahawks have signed former #Vikings and #Rams QB Sean Mannion to their practice squad," said Ari Meirov. 

It's expected to be a revolving door at the quarterback position in Seattle this upcoming season. That is, unless Geno Smith proves he can be the No. 1 guy on a consistent basis. Smith, after all, has been awaiting this opportunity for a while. 

It wouldn't be too much of a surprise if, at some point this upcoming season, both Lock and Mannion get looks under center. The Seahawks have nothing to lose in a clear rebuilding year.
