  • Seahawks' Jacob Eason: Likely aiming for backup duties

    Eason is expected to compete for the backup quarterback job after Seattle didn't draft a quarterback in the 2022 NFL Draft, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    The Washington product was picked by the Colts in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, but he has thrown just five regular-season passes. Drew Lock and Geno Smith are expected to be the main candidates for the starting quarterback job, and Eason likely would need to overperform to have a true shot at the starting gig. However, Eason is a prototypical quarterback, as he stands at 6-foot-6, 227 pounds and has a cannon for an arm. It wouldn't be surprising if the Seahawks kept him around as the No. 3 quarterback with hopes the 24-year-old can develop into a suitable NFL quarterback.

  • Seahawks' Jacob Eason: Not playing against Green Bay

    Eason (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers.

    With Russell Wilson (finger) returning to the starting role, Geno Smith has been demoted to the backup role and Eason is the odd man out in the quarterback pecking order. Eason is not likely to see the field any time soon unless both Wilson and Smith are unable to play.

  • Seahawks' Jacob Eason: Active Sunday

    Eason will be active Sunday against the Jaguars.

    Eason was claimed off waivers from the Colts on Oct. 20. He was inactive in Monday's contest against the Saints, but will now serve as Geno Smith's backup. Eason replaced an injured Carson Wentz in Week 2 against the Rams and completed two of five passes for 25 yards and an interception.

  • Seahawks' Jacob Eason: Inactive Monday

    Eason will be inactive Monday against the Saints.

    Eason was just claimed off waivers from the Colts on Oct. 20. He's an option to be the backup to Geno Smith while Russell Wilson (finger) is out, but he's likely not familiar enough with the playbook at this point to step up if something were to happen to Smith. In the meantime, Jake Luton has been elevated from the practice squad the past two games to serve as the No. 2 QB.

  • Seahawks' Jacob Eason: Lands in Seattle

    The Seahawks claimed Eason off waivers from the Colts on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    After losing his spot in Indianapolis' quarterback room when Sam Ehlinger (knee) was reinstated from injured reserve Tuesday, Eason quickly found a new home in the Pacific Northwest. At least for the time being, Eason will slot in as the No. 2 option on the depth chart behind Geno Smith, though Jake Luton could be elevated from the practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Saints if the coaching staff wants to give Eason more time to get familiar with the playbook. The Seahawks will presumably evaluate Eason in practices over the next several weeks before deciding whether he's worth keeping around once Russell Wilson (finger) returns from IR later in the season.

  • Jacob Eason: Cut loose by Colts

    Eason was waived by the Colts on Tuesday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.

    Eason fell behind Brett Hundley in the Colts' pecking order and has now lost his roster spot altogether with Sam Ehlinger (knee) being activated off injured reserve. Eason had some intriguing tools coming out of college but hasn't shown enough at the pro level to keep a backup role at this point.
