Tim Tebow Seahawks

Tim Tebow Seahawks, The Seattle Seahawks need a backup quarterback now that Matt Flynn is in Oakland.

The Seattle Times' Danny O'Neil reported Friday the team could kick the tires on Seneca Wallace, while Brady Quinn, Matt Leinart and Tyler Thigpen also could be options.

One name was left off the list: Tim Tebow.

Reports have Tebow Time being done in New York. The Jets are expected to release him if a trade doesn't surface -- which it hasn't so far. O'Neil writes the Seahawks briefly considered Tebow with their option running package, but they decided against it.

Smart decision. Tebow's presence would only bring drama and put starting quarterback Russell Wilson in an uncomfortable position. Tebow supporters are a vocal group and the national spotlight follows him everywhere. That's not what you want behind your young franchise signal-caller.

Tebow is not going to be happy somewhere he can't compete for the starting job, anyway. We saw how that worked out with the Jets. Tebow wasn't a distraction, but the scenario was.
