Latest NewsSeahawks | Two to compete for No. 2 QB job (Thu Jun 13, 08:14 PM) - Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said QB Tarvaris Jackson and Brady Quinn will compete for the backup quarterback job during training camp. Our View: We're expecting Jackson to win this job. He's simply a better fit for the offense and knows Darrell Bevell's system since he worked under him in both Seattle and Minnesota. Quinn is a nice third-string QB who gives the team veteran insurance. They would be in trouble if he was thrust into the starting lineup. Quinn may have difficulty beating out Jerrod Johnson for the QB3 spot.
