Seahawks signed QB Trevone Boykin, OT Isaiah Battle, OG Willie Beavers, DB Alex Carter, WR Cyril Grayson and DE Noble Nwachukwu to reserve/future contracts.

Boykin spent the year on the practice squad after losing No. 2 duties to Austin Davis. The ex-TCU quarterback will turn 25 in August. He will be in the mix again this offseason, but is unlikely to earn back the No. 2 job he had in 2016.
Jan 2 - 6:12 PM

Seahawks signed QB Trevone Boykin to their practice squad.

Boykin lost out to Austin Davis for No. 2 duties, but he wasn't claimed off waivers and returns to Seattle as the No. 3 passer. It's a sore spot in Seattle.

Seahawks waived QB Trevone Boykin.

The Seahawks are going with Austin Davis as Russell Wilson's backup, at least for now. The Seahawks also released/waived FB Marcel Reece, LB Mike Morgan, T Darrell Brown, LB Rodney Butler, RB Alex Collins, RB Mike Davis, WR Cyril Grayson, DT Tylor Harris, C Joey Hunt, DT Quinton Jefferson, WR Kenny Lawler, DT Jeremy Liggins, DT Greg Milhouse, WR David Moore, LB Kache Palacio, C/G Will Pericak, LB Otha Peters, WR Darreus Rogers, DT Garrison Smith, WR Rodney Smith, TE Tyrone Swoopes, T Tyrus Thompson, and CB Mike Tyson.

No. 2 QB Trevone Boykin is struggling early in Seahawks training camp.

"I can’t tell yet," were coach Pete Carroll's words when asked if Boykin had made progress. "I can’t tell. Too early. We’re just getting started. I don’t know yet." In other words, Boykin hasn't made the progress the Seahawks were expecting. The team met with free agent Colin Kaepernick earlier this offseason, and left the door open for a signing down the road. Boykin has proven adept at getting arrested through his first two years in the NFL and little else.

Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin has been cleared of his probation violation.

Arrested on December 31, 2015 for resisting arrest at a San Antonio bar, Boykin was fined and sentenced to probation. He was brought in again in April after being arrested in Dallas for marijuana possession and public intoxication, but the case was settled without his probation being revoked. It is a step in the right direction for Boykin, but he still is likely facing league discipline. The Seahawks, however, have shown no signs of moving on.

Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin was arrested for the second time in two weeks on Thursday.

Popped for public intoxication and drug possession last Monday, Boykin was picked up on Thursday for violating his 2016 probation agreement. In other words, the second arrest is related to last week's episode, not a new incident. Boykin was arrested in Dec. 2015 for drunkenly assaulting a police officer during TCU's bowl week. Boykin's status as Russell Wilson's No. 2 is on life support.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said "early indications" are the team will retain Trevone Boykin following his arrest for public intoxication and marijuana possession.

"Early indications are that we’ll give him an opportunity to be back with us," said Carroll. "We’ll see what happens though." Boykin was already on probation for a previous arrest when he was booked in Dallas early Monday morning. He could be facing punishment for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin was arrested for marijuana possession and public intoxication early Monday morning in Dallas.

Boykin was the passenger in a car that crashed into a Dallas bar around 2 AM early Monday and injured five people. The female driver was allegedly drunk. Boykin is no stranger to trouble at bars, as he was arrested for hitting an officer in a bar fight while at TCU in 2015. He was Russell Wilson's backup last season as an UDFA after beating out Tarvaris Jackson for the job.

Trevone Boykin completed 7-of-15 passes for 72 yards and rushed six times for 22 yards in the fourth preseason game.

It was a step back after Boykin had been progressing well throughout training camp. "He had some problems tonight," coach Pete Carroll said. "He’s not as sharp as he has been." Seattle had looked poised to keep Boykin as Russell Wilson's backup. Thursday's performance may have tested their resolve, but he will likely open the season as the No. 2.

Trevone Boykin completed 16-of-26 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's preseason opener.

He added three rushes for 21 yards. Boykin padded his stats against deep reserves late in the game, but struggled to move the offense against second-teamers. It was an uneven debut after Seattle talked him up all offseason. Boykin is the clear backup to Russell Wilson, but the Seahawks haven't ruled out adding a veteran quarterback.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said rookie QB Trevone Boykin has done a "great job" in camp.

"I don’t want to go too far with it too fast," Carroll said. "But he’s done a great job. He really is a good football player." The Seahawks have big question marks behind Russell Wilson, but Boykin could erase those by earning the backup job. It looks like he is on his way.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia wouldn’t be surprised if Seattle adds a veteran quarterback.

The Seahawks like Trevone Boykin as Russell Wilson’s backup, but want to see how he does at training camp. Seattle hasn’t been connected to any quarterbacks since Tarvaris Jackson’s arrest. Outside of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jimmy Clausen, Charlie Whitehurst, T.J. Yates, and Michael Vick are the top free agents.

Seahawks UDFA QB Trevone Boykin has avoided jail time in his assault case.

As part of a plea deal, Boykin pled no contest to a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest. He's been fined $1,500, and sentenced to one year probation. The Seahawks have insisted Boykin is a legitimate candidate to back up Russell Wilson. Right now, his only "competition" is 2015 UDFA Jake Heaps. It's possible, if not likely, a veteran is either signed or acquired.

Seahawks UDFA QB Trevone Boykin has been charged with assault in Texas in relation to the December incident that got him suspended from the Alamo Bowl.

An intoxicated Boykin allegedly assaulted a police officer. The Seahawks obviously knew of the incident when they signed Boykin in May. Both coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider have compared Boykin to Russell Wilson, and insist he has a chance to earn No. 2 duties in camp.
