Hawks work out four QBs, but sign receiver

The Seattle Seahawks worked out four veteran quarterbacks today in their quest to find a backup for Russell Wilson, with Matt Flynn traded to Oakland last week.

While the team has not announced who they will bring back among a quartet of signal callers that included Seneca Wallace, Matt Leinart, Brady Quinn and Tyler Thigpen – Seattle did announce the signing of receiver Brett Swain to a two-year deal.

Swain, 27, ran routes and caught balls from the four quarterbacks today. The San Diego State product was a seventh round choice in 2008 by Green Bay during general manager John Schneider’s time with the Packers. Swain caught six passes for Green Bay in 2010, and hauled in two receptions while with San Francisco in 2011.

At 6-foot and 200 pounds, Swain was cut by the 49ers during training camp last year.
