Seattle Seahawks set to sign quarterback Jake Waters

Football News

The Seattle Seahawks have had somewhat of an up-and-down pre-season, to say the very least.

Seahawks Woes

The Seahawks managed to tie down quarterback Russell Wilson and Bruce Irvin to new contracts, but fellow stars Kam Chancellor and Michael Bennett are unhappy at not receiving theirs.

And then there is the offensive line, which is in a complete state of disarray as the Seahawks do their best to shove square pegs in round holes and not try to get Wilson killed just months after penning his huge deal.

And now the Seahawks are having some problems at quarterback, but don't worry, it isn't about Russell Wilson.

New QB

According to a report from Kevin White of the Omaha World-Herald, after some injuries to Wilson's backups, the Seahawks have been forced to bring in a new quarterback, with Jake Waters getting the nod from Pete Carroll.

The current number two at the Seahawks - Tarvaris Jackson - suffered a high ankle sprain during Seattle's first pre-season game and he could miss as much as a month or two spent on the sidelines and on the physio table.

Waters had a good time of things with the Wildcats and finished it off with an impressive senior season that saw him unlucky not to be drafted.  Waters completed 66 percent of his passes for 3,501 yards and 22 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions, as well as rushing for over 400 yards.

Waters will be linking up with his former K-State teammate in wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who was drafted by the Seahawks in the third round of the 2015 Draft.
