Former Washington quarterback Keith Price has signed a free-agent deal with the Seattle Seahawks, he announced on Twitter.

“We had a good look at him obviously, being a local kid and all,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “We’ve seen him for years, and we had a really good look at him at his workouts. He came here for our local workout. We feel very, very comfortable with him. We know that he’s got a big upside, and seemed to fit in really well with our coaches so we just feel really comfortable and we think we can give him a real good shot at it.”

Price, a three-year starter for UW and the Huskies’ all-time leader in touchdown passes, had become friends had become friends with Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

“It’s awesome having him as a mentor to me,” Price said last year. “Just knowing that I have a guy performing at the highest level helping me achieve is a blessing.”

Said Wilson of Price: “Just being around him, he’s a great kid. He’s got a lot of ability. He’s got charisma. He’s a guy who is a great leader for his football team, and so just being around him was something that meant a lot to me.”

Here’s more on the Seahawks undrafted free agent signings from Bob Condotta.

Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and running back Bishop Sankey, both selected in the second round Friday, were the only former Huskies drafted this week.
