The Seahawks explored the possibility of acquiring Tim Tebow, but are not expected to pursue him further.

The Seattle Times reported that the Seahawks did "look into acquiring" Tebow, but he's no longer thought to be a consideration. With Matt Flynn dealt to Oakland, Seattle is left only with newly signed Josh Portis as Russell Wilson's backup. The Times named Seneca Wallace, Tyler Thigpen, Brady Quinn, and Matt Leinart as candidates to back up Wilson. Wallace and Thigpen are the likeliest fits.
