Losman lands in Seattle
With an aging veteran and an unproven backup on the depth chart, the Seattle Seahawks decided that the best thing for the club was to add another quarterback.
That lucky signal-caller turned out to be former Buffalo Bill J.P. Losman.
The Seahawks and Losman agreed to a one-year deal worth $630,000 on Tuesday night, per John Clayton of ESPN.com.
The 29-year-old Losman—who spent five seasons with the Buffalo Bills before winning a championship in the UFL with the Las Vegas Locomotives—joins former Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and offseason acquisition Charlie Whitehurst on the Seattle depth chart. Fourth-stringer Mike Reilly was recently released and 24-year-old Mike Teel could be on the way out now that Losman has been signed.
Losman—a 2004 first-round pick of the Bills—threw one pass for the Oakland Raiders last season (it was incomplete). The club signed him in December after a stint in the United Football League that culminated with a league championship.
