Portis is coming back
Mon Apr 01, 2013 5:50 pm
  • Josh Portis - QB - Free Agent
    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Seahawks plan to re-sign free agent QB Josh Portis.
    Portis was signed by the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent following the 2011 draft, but he has never appeared in an NFL game. The soon-to-be 26-year-old was cut from the practice squad last November.

  • I remember his throwing to be erratic. He needs work on his accuracy pretty bad.

    More of a #3 project than a solid #2 IMO. Glad we are bringing in someone familiar though with potential.

  • Hope he comes back. I know, I know a lot of us geeked out over his performance on few drives in Preseason 2011, but if he could build on that, and he starts picking up some of Dangeruss's training traits....

    ...it'd be cool to see him succeed. I'd like to see how he handles read-option plays.

    Wow that's kinda harsh. Admittedly, he's not the coolest passer under pressure, but there are aspects to his game that could be improved upon, especially with Russ around. I'm glad he's back, and at a very reasonable price I'm sure. He in all likelihood isn't going to see the field anyway.

    As unfair as the three way competition was to Flynn, Wilson and TJack . . . The guy who was really screwed was Portis, who not only lost valuable game time, but coaching time as well.

    The dude has QB skills . . . Raw as he'll still, but a live arm, great size, and incredible athletic ability.

  • Dunno. At times he really seemed to show an "it" factor, but then he could look pretty bad too. All in all, if he's in for competition, then I'm cool. Let him, a rookie, and possibly another vet with actual starting experience compete for the backup roles.

    First thing I thought of when I read Portis was re-signed. CANHawk is a genius and a psychic (and a psycho).

    Are you proposing carrying 4 QBs on the 53-man roster, or would Wallace be our starter in your perverse 'trade Wilson' scenario?

  • HAHA. sorry..I meant Wilson. I had just gotten out of the Wallace thread and it was sort of stuck in my head. I like Wallace and all, but his time is past. I feel he is a classic example of one of those "could have been" guys...

    Wilson as my starter, Thigpen and Portis as 2a and 2b, depending on the situation and how fast Thigpen picks up the offense.

  • Portis just signed a contract to play in the CFL last month. It's odd that he'd sign there if there was even a hint that we'd want him back. You'd think we would have picked him up already, as camp fodder at least, if we were even contemplating having him actually be our #2 guy. Something just doesn't seem quite right

    Saw him in his first preseason, was ok for an undrafted rookie coming from a small school, 2nd preseason he literally got no reps and was ignored all preseason until Jackson was traded.

    I'd rather have Tebow and it's not even close.

    We've seen Portis make one good play. Maybe one and a half, and half the board loves him for it for whatever reason. Tebow has made at least 3 good plays.

    I love Portis too, becauase he's a Seahawk. But i'd be pretty shocked if he ever took a single snap in a regular season NFL game.

    I read yesterday someone postulating that they waited to deal Flynn before bringing Portis back so as not to reveal their plans and sour the Flynn deal.

    Sorry, can't remember (or find) where I read it, but it sounds like a plausible reason to wait on bringing him back.

    Sounds kinda weak, I mean bringing in another arm to use during camp would be fairly normal anyway, so they could have easily signed him and showed those intentions. Honestly, they may bring him back, but I don't think he's going to be the backup. I just think they will bring in someone else for that role. I could be wrong, but it just doesn't seem quite right to me.

  • The hawks staff made it clear they felt T-Jack was a better decision maker/QB than Portis...so there ya go. Perhaps something we don't know.

    The difference is that Jackson has had seven years of NFL coaching. Portis still hasn't had any.

    His first offseason was the two week strike shortened offseason, and his second offseason was as the fourth man in a three man battle.
