Dorsey, who is regarded as a smart quarterback with decent touch in short-to-medium routes, was on the outs in Cleveland with Charlie Frye the starter in the short term, Brady Quinn the heir apparent and Derek Anderson the third man. The Seahawks are looking for a reliable backup after cutting David Greene. Dorsey has thrown 171 completions in 317 attempts for 1712 yards, 8 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in his career.
His documented weaknesses seem to be consistency and strength, and he doesn't have an exceptional deep ball. However, Mike Holmgren's offense requires more ability and accuracy on those shorter timing routes.
