Seahawks re-sign QB Austin Davis, LB Paul Dawson

The Seattle Seahawks continued to add depth behind Russell Wilson by re-signing fellow quarterback Austin Davis, the team announced Monday.

But now, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, insiders are saying that the Seahawks have not completely ruled out signing Kaepernick at a later date.

Garafolo reports the Seahawks are still considering whether to host Colin Kaepernick for a visit.

Many sports writers have pointed to the Seahawks' action as proof that Kaepernick has been blackballed over his invention of the national anthem protest. A 2012 undrafted free agent, Davis has not thrown a pass since the 2015 season.

Seattle last week also signed Stephen Morris to compete for backup QB duties behind Wilson.

Davis had seemed an obvious candidate to sign since he not only had experience with Seattle previous year but also with new Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer from 2012-14 with the Rams, starting eight games in 2014.

Davis, 28, agreed to a one-year contract for the veteran's minimum.

Hunt, who was a sixth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, started one game in his rookie season before spending the majority of the 2017 campaign on the practice squad. The Seattle Times reported the two sides are still planning to get together and discuss a contract, but there are many factors to be considered from the team's perspective.
