Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Seahawks not interested in Tebow

The SportsXchange

The Seattle Seahawks are not interested in acquiring Tim Tebow, according to the Seattle Times.

Since trading backup Matt Flynn to the Oakland Raiders last week, the Seahawks have been searching for a backup to Russell Wilson.

The team added Josh Portis and is interested in Seneca Wallace and Tyler Thigpen. The Times also mentioned Brady Quinn and Matt Leinart as possibilities.

With Seattle using the zone-read option more, running quarterbacks have an appeal. That is why the Seahawks are interested in bringing Wallace back four years after trading him to the Cleveland Browns. They also want to take a look at Thigpen, who was the Buffalo Bills' backup quarterback last year.

But despite Tebow's running ability, Seattle is reportedly not interested. He is scheduled to make $2 million with the New York Jets this season. While the Seahawks did reportedly inquire about him, they decided not to follow up.

Seattle is also considering looking at former first round draft picks Quinn and Leinart. Quinn was a backup for the Kansas City Chiefs last year while Leinart was with the Raiders. The Seahawks previously pursued Leinart after the 2011 lockout.
