SEAHAWKS: Former UW QB Stanback claimed off waivers

The Seahawks claimed former UW quarterback Isaiah Stanback off waivers from the New England Patriots on Tuesday. Stanback was a fourth-round draft pick by the Dallas Cowboys years ago, and was initially designated as a receiver.

He played two seasons for the Cowboys before being cut last season and eventually ended up in New England under Bill Belichick. Stanback started out as a quarterback with the Patriots but was eventually inserted as a wide receiver and had minimal impact on the team in six games last season.

The Seahawks have listed Stanback’s position as a receiver, which makes him the 16th receiver on the roster. Given the amount of available receivers, don’t be surprised if his position is switched or if he is cut before the beginning of the regular season.
