Trevone Boykin cut by Seahawks
The Seahawks have cut second-year QB Trevone Boykin.
An interesting prospect on paper, Boykin played himself out of a job, throwing four interceptions in the preseason. The good and the bad was on display, as Boykin averaged a respectable 8.2 yards per attempt, but showed a tendency to overthrow open receivers. The backup QB job will now go to Austin Davis who looked respectable during his limited preseason action. Though Davis has some starting experience in the NFL the drop off from Russell Wilson to Davis is possibly the steepest starter to backup drop in the NFL. To put it plainly, if Wilson misses any time the Seahawks offense goes from fantasy friendly to fantasy wasteland. Boykin is expected to clear waivers and will probably remain in orbit on the Seahawks practice squad.
