The Seattle Seahawks worked out quarterback Josh Johnson and cornerback Roy Lewis on Wednesday, with the thought of bringing each onto the roster for a late-season playoff push. Seattle is 7-5 and coming off a surprising win in Chicago.
With just four games left in the regular season, the Seattle Seahawks are apparently trying to upgrade their roster for a potential playoff push. The team worked out quarterback Josh Johnson and cornerback Roy Lewis on Wednesday morning according to the Twitter feed of Philadelphia radio host Adam Caplan.
If Seattle elects to sign Johnson, the veteran could immediately into the No. 3 spot the Seahawks' depth chart behind starter Russell Wilson and back-up Matt Flynn. In his career, Johnson has thrown for 1,067 and five touchdowns, to go along with 10 interceptions. After playing each of the last two seasons in Tampa Bay, Johnson signed with San Francisco this off-season, before he was eventually cut at the end of training camp in August.
Meanwhile, Lewis has missed the entire 2012 season because of injury.
Should Seattle elect to sign either player, they could provide depth for a club trying to get into the postseason as one of the NFC's wild card teams.
Currently the Seahawks are 7-5 overall and coming off a shocking win last Sunday night in Chicago. Seattle hosts Arizona this Sunday afternoon at CenturyLink Field.
