Breaking News: Seahawks Release JP Losman

Published on September 4, 2010 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

The Seahawks’ shuffle at No. 3 quarterback has gone through Teel, Reilly and J.P. Losman this summer, with a new candidate soon to emerge.

Losman, who held the mantle — or clipboard — through the four preseason games, has been released, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Seahawks have yet to confirm that news, with the club expected to wait until close to Saturday’s 3 p.m. deadline to announce all their roster moves in the cutdown to 53 players.

But it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the search continues for an upgrade in quarterback depth. With the Seahawks looking to develop Charlie Whitehurst while also getting Matt Hasselbeck ready as the starter, Losman played sparingly in the preseason and, as I wrote several weeks ago, was largely the forgotten quarterback in training camp.

Losman completed just 6 of 14 passes for 16 yards with one interception in two preseason appearances.

Veteran backup Patrick Ramsey, who spent two years in Denver with Seahawks offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates, was just released by the Saints and could be a target for Seattle.

Ramsey, a first-round draft pick of the Redskins in 2002, has started 24 games in the league, but none since 2005 after he was traded to the Jets. He has since bounced to Denver, Tennessee and New Orleans in backup roles.

He was 31 for 51 for 281 yards with a touchdown and interception with the Broncos during Bates’ tenure.

Ramsey put up pretty decent numbers for the Saints in three preseason appearances this year, completing 28 of 45 passes for 400 yards with one touchdown and one interception, which is a ton more playing time than Losman got with Seattle.

Ramsey had been the backup to Drew Brees with the Saints, but apparently lost a battle with second-year pro Chase Daniel.

There’ll also be conjecture over whether Matt Leinart might reunite with Pete Carroll in Seattle now that he’s been released by the Arizona Cardinals. That one would surprise me, given Leinart presumably will be looking for more than a No. 3 position if possible.

But nobody knows Leinart any better than Carroll, so we’ll see.
