Austin Davis back on Seahawks — Free agency roundup

The controversy over the cancellation was deepened the very next day when the team signed former Redskins quarterback Stephen Morris.

The Seattle Seahawks will add another backup quarterback not named Colin Kaepernick.NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Seattle will re-sign Austin Davis, according to a source informed of the situation.

ESPN reported last week the Seahawks were not comfortable signing Kaepernick without knowing his "plan" with respect to protests during the 2018 National Football League season.

Seattle also re-signed linebacker Paul Dawson, who was signed to the practice squad last November and promoted to the active roster in December to add depth after injuries to K.J. Wright and Bobby Wagner.

Davis had seemed an obvious candidate to sign since he not only had experience with Seattle previous year but also with new Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer from 2012-14 with the Rams, starting eight games in 2014.

The signings mean that Seattle has all of its ERFAs and restricted free agents now under contract as the offseason program begins. The Seattle Times reported the two sides are still planning to get together and discuss a contract, but there are many factors to be considered from the team's perspective. Teams can have a max of 90 heading into training camp.
