Report: Leinart, Quinn scheduled for VMAC workouts

Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports that free agent quarterbacks Matt Leinart, Brady Quinn, Seneca Wallace and Tyler Thigpen are scheduled to workout for the Seattle Seahawks at the team’s Renton headquarters early this week.

The Seahawks have not confirmed this report.

With Matt Flynn traded to Oakland last week, the Seahawks are looking for another player to add to the competition for the backup quarterback position, with Josh Portis re-signed last week.

Leinart has been linked to Seattle in the past because he starred for Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll for the Trojans. Thigpen and Wallace make some sense because of their ability to run the read-option offense.
