Seattle Seahawks Explored Possibility of Tim Tebow Trade

There are very few people that believe Tim Tebow will suit up in a New York Jets uniform next season, so there are always countless rumors surfacing about where the Jets personal punt protector could end up next. One of the latest rumors linked Tebow to the Seattle Seahawks as a back up for Russell Wilson, but it doesn’t look like the chances of a Tebow move to the Pacific Northwest are very likely.

According to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times, the Seahawks are not expected to make a run at Tebow this offseason after shipping off back up Matt Flynn to the Oakland Raiders.

In O’Neil’s report, he names Tyler Thigpen, Brady Quinn and Matt Leinart as more realistic possibilities to replace Flynn on the roster, though he did note the Seahawks considered adding Tebow to the roster but ultimately decided against it.

With mobile quarterbacks like Pat White resurfacing around the league, you would have to expect someone would be interested in adding Tebow to the team if for no other reason than experience against a mobile quarterback during practices.
