Seahawks Interested in Dorsey?

Seahawks.NET has learned from Scout.com NFL Reporter Adam Caplan that five-year veteran quarterback Ken Dorsey has visited the Seahawks' Kirkland campus in the last 24 hours.

An interesting aspect to this story is that Dorsey, San Francisco's seventh-round draft pick in 2003, was traded to Cleveland for former Seattle backup and Matt Hasselbeck mentor Trent Dilfer in May of 2006. Dorsey played in one game and attempted one pass in 2006. Dorsey was released by the Browns in final cuts on September 1st.

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.

Stay tuned for more exclusive analysis.
