Teel Signs Contract

by: Mike Parker

The Seahawks reportedly signed former Rutgers QB Mike Teel to an undisclosed four-year contract earlier today.

Teel is the second player from this Hawks draft class to sign a deal this week, with former Rutgers teammate Courtney Greene signing a multi-year agreement Monday.

I expect TE Cameron Morrah to be the next to sign, if memory of the draft order serves. No one is expecting any of these players to be immediate contributors, but the Seahawks appear to be focusing on getting these deals in place well before training camp.

I'd also expect Teel to beat out QB Jeff Rowe in camp for the third spot on the depth chart. Either way, Teel has to be an improvement over Charlie Frye.
