Seahawks seeking help for Matt Flynn
Fresh off the signing of Matt Flynn the Seattle Seahawks are seeking some targets for their new quarterback to utilize.
That is why the team hosted a pair of veteran tight ends on free-agent visits Monday, according to Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times. Visanthe Shiancoe and Jacob Tamme made their way to the Pacific Northwest.
Shiancoe and Tamme are both skilled pass-catching tight ends and either one of them would pair well with Zach Miller. Seattle had hoped to re-sign John Carlson but he wound up commanding more money than they wanted to commit. Carlson received a $25 million, five-year deal from the Minnesota Vikings.
There are rumors that Tamme, who played with Peyton Manning previously in Indianapolis, could be ticketed for the Denver Broncos.
