Seahawks expected to pursue signing of QB Brady Quinn

It appears that Brady Quinn is the winner of the four-man audition to compete for the reserve quarterback role on the Seattle Seahawks roster.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports that Seattle was most impressed with Quinn after Monday's workout, and hope to reach an agreement with the former first round pick.

The Seahawks have not confirmed this report.

Seattle had Quinn, Matt Leinart, Tyler Thigpen and Seneca Wallace all in for a throwing session and physical on Monday. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Wallace is scheduled to work out for the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday.

Quinn, 28, served as the backup for Matt Cassel in 2012, starting eight games last season and finishing 1-7 as a starter. For his career, the 6-foot-4, 232-pounder out of Notre Dame is 4-16 as a starter in the NFL.

However, Brady is strong-armed, athletic and familiar with the West Coast offense. He worked under the tutelage of former Seattle quarterback Jim Zorn while in Kansas City.
