Jake Heaps is the latest QB to join the Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks went into the draft knowing they needed to add some quarterback options.

TCU's Trevone Boykin signed with the team as an undrafted free agent, and on Monday Jake Heaps announced that he's joining the Seahawks as well.

Heaps worked out with the Seahawks back in November. He played high school football in the Seattle area at Skyline in Sammamish, Washington, but was never able to put it all together in college, spending time at BYU, Kansas and Miami.

Last offseason, the 25-year-old Heaps spent some time with the New York Jets, but he was waived in August.

Jayson Jenks of The Seattle Times took an in-depth look at Heaps' journey last summer.

The Seahawks now have three quarterbacks on the roster: Russell Wilson, Boykin and Heaps. Oregon's Vernon Adams also will get a look at a tryout later this week during rookie minicamp, according to multiple reports.

Meanwhile, Tarvaris Jackson, who has spent the past three seasons as Wilson's backup, remains a free agent. General manager John Schneider said recently that he's been in touch with Jackson, and the veteran still is a candidate to return to the Seahawks.
