  Bears | Mike Teel officially signed    Mon Jul 26, 03:33 PM

The Chicago Bears have officially signed unrestricted free-agent QB Mike Teel (Patriots) to a two-year deal, reports the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Teel has bounced from the Seahawks, to the Patriots, and now to the Bears this offseason and is likely a developmental quarterback for the practice squad. He's currently fourth on the depth chart behind Jay Cutler, Caleb Hanie, and rookie Dan LeFevour.

  Patriots | Release QB Mike Teel    Fri Jun 11, 04:38 PM

The New England Patriots announced via Twitter that they have released three players today: WR Bryan Anderson, P David King and QB Mike Teel.

Footballguys view: Teel was released by the Seahawks earlier this year, and may have a hard time catching on with another team. It looks like rookie Zac Robinson has a firm grip on the third-string job behind Tom Brady and Brian Hoyer.

  Patriots | Mike Teel claimed    Fri May 21, 05:03 PM

The New England Patriots have claimed free-agent QB Mike Teel (Seahawks), his agent to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.

Footballguys view: The new regime in Seattle must not have seen anything in Teel. He'll fight seventh-round pick Zac Robinson for a spot on the practice squad.

  Seahawks | Mike Teel released    Wed May 19, 09:23 PM

The Seattle Seahawks have waived QB Mike Teel, reports Danny O'Neil, of The Seattle Times.

Footballguys view: When the Seahawks added J.P. Losman many people expected Teel to be released. He has good size and the arm strength to make every NFL throw. There should be another team willing to take a chance on this developmental quarterback with decent upside.

  Seahawks | Mike Teel may be released    Tue May 18, 09:33 PM

The Seattle Seahawks may release QB Mike Teel after they signed QB J.P. Losman to a one-year deal Tuesday, May 18, reports John Clayton, of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Mike Teel has decent upside as a developmental quarterback, and if he's released we imagine the Browns (and former Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren) would scoop him up immediately.

  Seahawks | Mike Reilly to challenge for No. 3 quarterback role    Wed May 5, 11:34 AM

Greg Johns, of seattlepi.com, reports Seattle Seahawks QB Mike Reilly is expected to challenge QB Mike Teel for the team's No. 3 quarterback job.

Footballguys view: We like the upside of Mike Teel more than the upside of Reilly. Both are savvy quarterbacks, but we give the edge to Teel because of his ability to read defenses and stay calm under pressure.

  Seahawks | Looking at QB Whitehurst    Wed Mar 10, 08:47 PM

According to Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times, the Seattle Seahawks will meet with San Diego Chargers restricted free agent quarterback Charlie Whitehurst. Whitehurst, a third-round pick by the Chargers in 2006, was tendered at the "Original Round" level, meaning the Seahawks would be required to compensate the Chargers with a third-round draft choice in the 2010 NFL Draft should they sign Whitehurst to an offer sheet that San Diego declines to match.

Footballguys view: The third-round pick might be a problem for Seattle initially because presently they don't have a pick in the third-round of the 2010 NFL Draft. New head coach Pete Carroll wants to bring in a young quarterback to compete with Mike Teel for the backup job to Matt Hasselbeck. Whitehurst has been buried on the depth chart in San Diego, but may get a shot to be a starter with another team.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks have said that Justin Forsett and Julius Jones will split carries today. Neither is a particularly good start as anything more than a desperation RB2/flex option.

  Seahawks | Teel throws two TD passes Thursday    Fri Sep 4, 02:54 AM

The Associated Press reports Seattle Seahawks QB Mike Teel was 11-for-19 for 148 yards with two touchdown passes during the team's preseason finale Thursday, Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: It's the final week of the preseason, so we can't get too excited here. However, it looks like Mike Teel could develop into a solid quarterback, and he has the perfect skill set for a West Coast offense. Matt Hasselbeck is not getting any younger, and the Seahawks are anxious to see if Teel can be their QB of the future.

  Seahawks | Teel secures 3rd spot    Wed Sep 2, 11:58 AM

Eric Williams, from the Tacoma News-Tribune, reports Mike Teel appears to have wrestled away the third QB spot from free agent Jeff Rowe. The Rutgers product has shown he has a good head for the game, verifying the team using a sixth-round pick to select him.

Footballguys view: Teel could be developed in a West Coast system, as he has good football intelligence, knows how to evenly distribute the football, and can pull the ball down to run if necessary.

  Seahawks | Teel's leadership intrigued team brass    Tue Jul 7, 07:11 PM

Seahawks 12th man reports that sixth-round pick QB Mike Teel's leadership while overcoming a slow start to lead Rutgers to seven straight wins to close the 2008 season was what led the team to draft him.

Footballguys view: Teel has plenty of long term opportunity as Hasselbeck probably only has two or three good years left, maybe less if the injury bug bites as hard as it did last year, and the team is not currently developing any other young QBs that they drafted. Teel isn't a special prospect physically, but he'll get to learn under a QB who overcame similar low expectations in Hasselbeck.

  Seahawks | Teel, Rowe in the hunt to make team    Sun Jun 21, 09:19 PM

Eric Williams, of the Tacoma News Tribune, reports Seattle Seahawks QB Mike Teel and QB Jeff Rowe are in the hunt to make the team's final roster.

Footballguys view: Teel is a project QB that will take years to develop, although his upside is nice. He improved during his career at Rutgers, but is still a QB that forces the ball too much and locks onto his primary receiver. Rowe is a big, scrambling QB from Nevada that has spent some time with the Bengals. He has an ugly release but is fairly accurate, does a good job going through his progressions, and he's not afraid to challenge a defense deep. The battle is up in the air, but one could make the final roster and one could be kept on the practice squad.
