Quarterback Josh Portis has signed a two-year deal with the Seahawks, the team announced this evening.
The Seahawks are familiar with Portis, who originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent out of California University (Pa.) on July 26, 2011.
The 6-foot-3, 211-pound Portis spent his rookie year on Seattle’s 53-man roster behind Tarvaris Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst. He saw action in the preseason and was active for one game during the regular season (10/23) when Jackson could not play due to injury, serving as a backup to Whitehurst in a loss to the Cleveland Browns.
Portis was released during the Seahawks’ final roster cut down in September before the 2012 season and then added to the team’s practice squad, where he spent time until he was released after the team’s Week 12 game against the Miami Dolphins. That move left Russell Wilson and Matt Flynn as the only two quarterbacks on Seattle’s roster.
Now, two days after Flynn has been traded to the Oakland Raiders, Wilson and Portis makeup the current players at the quarterback position for Seattle.
