  • QB-Josh Portis is now re-signed for 2 years, terms unconfirmed.

    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons.

    What a special magical year!

  • you beat me by like 2 seconds :)

    His previous deal was for 3 years and he didn't come close to seeing the end of that, so until we see the deal, the length could really be meaningless in the world of the NFL and non guaranteed contracts

  • Good, smart signing at this point. Knows the system and provides some good competition for whoever else they bring in.

  • I agree draft a rookie to compete for the #2 job with Portis. His 2 years in the system is a big plus.

  • Still no news from a credible source regarding Thigpen.

  • Notice how the deal is for two years? If Portis breaks out this year and intrigues teams, he could turn into a potential trade chip, which wouldn't be possible if he was on a 1 year deal. If Seattle adds another free agent QB (Young, Thigpen, etc) that has at least a slim chance for trade potential, expect the signing to be at least two years.

    I bet @DangeRussWilson had something to do w/Portis coming back. Portis, not Flynn, was RW's shadow in film room & off day work sessions

    Breaks out? I hope he never has to take a meaningful down.

  • Portis will get a lot of snaps during the regular season.

    You know, like when RW gets us to 30 point leads over the 9ers.

    How much you want for the dress, oh, and more importantly, does it come with matching shoes? :shock:

  • BOT....love the Portis signing. From his brief stint here in preseason, he looks like he could pick up some of RW's moves as a mobile QB. It'd be nice if he could and be worth some draft capital in a couple of years.

    IAE he's a great camp guy to have this off season.
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.
