The Seattle Seahawks gave Keith Price fans some disappointing news yesterday, cutting the likable hometown kid to add running back Demetrius Bronson (who nobody’s ever heard of before) just to have a warm body in training camp, but there are still several quarterbacks to consider on the roster.
The incumbent starter Russell Wilson leads the charge, while Tarvaris Jackson, Terrelle Pryor and B.J. Daniels are vying for a backup spot. The question now is; will the Seahawks keep two or three QB’s on the roster once the season starts?
We’ve had some discussions about it already, but it’s very interesting that the Seahawks saw good improvement in Pryor over the OTA period. If Pryor can continue to improve, he could potentially give the team a very athletic option to play with and we know how Pete Carroll and Co. love their toys.
In that case there is a pretty good argument for keeping three. However there are even more intense roster battles at positions like defensive line, linebacker, fullback and receiver this season, where the extra roster spot would be very useful. Because of that there’s very little chance the Hawks decide to keep three quarterbacks this season. So I see this playing out between Jackson and Pryor for the backup role and few are giving Pryor much of a shot.
If you’re wondering about B.J. Daniels, my opinion is that he has some upside but I see him bowing out to Jackson and Pryor based on experience. Honestly, I don’t think even if he played his best that Daniels could land himself a spot on the roster. That’s really not anything more than personal opinion and there are some fans that disagree, but I feel it’s a pretty educated guess.
