On the same day that a former NFL first-round draft pick who once had a season for the ages had to settle for a job in the UFL, a former NFL first-round draft pick who never did much of anything has gotten his second NFL gig after taking a detour to the new four-team (now five) football league.
FOX’s Jay Glazer reports that J.P. Losman has signed with the Seahawks.
No offense to Losman, but why in the heck wouldn’t the Seahawks have taken a chance on Daunte Culpepper before the former Bills starter? Though Culpepper hasn’t returned to the full form he displayed before suffering a torn knee ligament trifecta in 2005, Culpepper would still seem to be a better choice than Losman.
Losman played for the Las Vegas Locomotives last season before finishing the year with the Raiders. He is the only member of the first-round quarterback class of 2004 who hasn’t scored a contract extension in the vicinity of $100 million.
That said, we doubt he’d currently trade places with one of the three who did.
