The Seattle Seahawks were one of the teams to put in a waiver claim for quarterback Connor Shaw, according to Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate.

Shaw was cut by the Cleveland Browns and landed on the Chicago Bears, but he drew interest from multiple teams, including the New Orleans Saints.

The note is a reminder that the Seahawks are in the market for backup quarterback help. Their primary option right now is Trevone Boykin, but the team might not be comfortable going with a rookie undrafted free agent behind Russell Wilson.

Tarvaris Jackson was thought to be a possibility, but he faces off the field issues stemming from an alleged aggravated assault incident with a deadly weapon. Jackson has been the Seahawks' backup quarterback for the past three seasons.

One name brought up recently by ESPN analyst Phil Savage was Michael Vick.

Fantasy Impact:

Vick, 36, played in five games with the Pittsburgh Steelers last year. He completed 60.6 percent of his passes but averaged just 5.62 yards per attempt. Vick threw two touchdowns and was intercepted once. He also ran 20 times for 99 yards.
