Former Texas A&M quarterback Jerrod Johnson, who was with the Pittsburgh Steelers throughout the preseason last year, was signed by Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday.
Johnson appeared in three pre season games for the Steelers last year and was 14-of-21 passing for 236 yards with two touchdowns in very limited playing time. He was also sacked five times and ran for 36 yards on seven attempts.
The Steelers chose to keep veteran Charlie Batch as their third quarterback over Johnson, who went on to play for the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the UFL after failing to be signed by another team following his release from the Steelers.
Johnson will be try to make the Seahawks 53 man roster as a third quarterback and will need to beat out Josh Portis for spot.
