Free agency roundup: Austin Davis back on Seahawks

Seahawks quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Austin Davis left warm up at Century Link Field

Davis didn't throw a pass for the Seahawks past year, and has a 3-7 record as a starter during his stints with the Rams and Browns.

Again, they are signing Austin Davis-and not Colin Kaepernick-to backup Russell Wilson.

Davis, 28, and Stephen Morris, the backup QB the Seahawks signed on Friday, have both played for Seattle's new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.

Seattle also re-signed linebacker Paul Dawson, who was signed to the practice squad last November and promoted to the active roster in December to add depth after injuries to K.J. Wright and Bobby Wagner. Kaepernick has been sitting on the sidelines and left unsigned since he turned free agent at the end of the 2016 season.

The Seahawks begin voluntary offseason workouts Monday.

Garafolo notes that the Seahawks' talks with Kaepernick are in a "holding pattern", and that bringing Davis back doesn't rule out the possibility of bringing the former 49ers starter in.
