According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Seattle Seahawks could be interested in upgrading the quarterback position today, with about seven hours left before the final deadline for 53-man roster cuts.
Schefter reports the Seahawks have shown interest in Patrick Ramsey, who was released by New Orleans on Friday.
Offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates knows a thing or two about Ramsey. The two were together for two seasons when Bates served as a quarterback coach in Denver in 2007 and 2008, so Ramsey should be able to come in and quickly pick up the offense is Seattle makes a move.
So far third-team quarterback J.P. Losman has struggled in limited preseason play.
UPDATE: Schefter is now reporting Hawks will go with two quarterbacks and released Losman.
