The Seahawks have just announced that they have waived backup quarterback Josh Portis.
The news comes a day after it was revealed that he had been arrested on suspicion of DUI on May 5.
Portis was one of four quarterbacks on Seattle’s roster, and one of three competing for the backup job behind Russell Wilson. The others are Brady Quinn and Jerrod Johnson.
The Seahawks almost certainly will now be on the market for at least one more quarterback for training camp.
The QBs they had in for tryouts earlier this month were Casey Brockman, a rookie from Murray State, and Jake Mullin, a rookie from McMurray.
Portis had been on Seattle’s roster off-and-on since 2011 but had never played in a game for the Seahawks.
