Seahawks Considering RGIII or Kaepernick for Backup QB Role

posted by Michael Fowler - 

FS1 - Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III have generated little to no interest on the free-agent market this offseason, but that could change soon. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said on Monday that both veterans are being considered by the Seahawks as backup quarterback options.

“We’re looking at everybody. We really are,” Carroll said, via ESPN. “We’ve been tracking everything that’s going on, and we’ve got cap and roster issues and stuff like that that we’re still trying to manage properly. But quite frankly, yes, we are looking at all those guys.”


The above piece was taken from FS1's article about Pete Carroll reportedly being interested in the two biggest QB names available (for different reasons) in free agency.

The Seahawks, no stranger to players with bold personalities, are a veteran team according to Dan Beyer, and might have the infrastructure in place to support these talented-but-outspoken backup players into their unit. In fact, some could argue that Pete Carroll is exactly the right type of coach to deal with the challenges having Kaep or RGIII might incur.

Doug Gottlieb spoke today about this issue, check it out in the audio below.
