01:33 PM ET 04.02 | The Seattle Seahawks are reportedly interested in bringing in veteran quarterback Vince Young. Young would be a backup option behind second-year signal caller Russell Wilson, who led the Seahawks to an 11-5 record and a road playoff victory this past season. Seattle is looking for a backup after trading Matt Flynn to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a couple draft picks. Flynn was set to be the starter in 2012 but Wilson surged and took the job. As Flynn was being paid like a starter, given his three-year, $19.5 million contract, the Seahawks needed to trade him this offseason. Of course, Young isn't likely the only option for the Seahawks. Tyler Thigpen is one significant name the team could be looking at to replace Flynn as Wilson's backup. Thigpen also makes sense as a similar player to Flynn. Free agent quarterback Matt Leinart could be an option to fill the void, as well.

As soon as Young heard the news, he borrowed $300,000 and threw a party for himself.

This might be a First: "Significant name" and "Tyler Thigpen" used in the same sentence.

As far as Leinart goes - he's played 16 games, with 871 yards, 2 TDs and 5 picks in last 4 Seasons...

With the 56th pick in the draft the Seattle Seahawks select a suit of armor for Russel Wilson.

Vince Young would be a perfect fit for a team needing a quarterback. ... He is Motivated, Hungry and Determined to prove he can still play this game at a high level.... and that he can lead a team deep into the playoffs and possibly to the SuperBowl... Vince Young is salary-cap friendly "Low Risk - High Reward" type of guy... He's a wise choice for the smart Team Owner/GM....
