The Seattle Seahawks have finally chosen a backup quarterback.

His name is Austin Davis. His name is not Colin Kaepernick.

Though Kaepernick worked out for the Seahawks recently and drew rave reviews, with Pete Carroll describing his former NFC West rival as “a starter in this league,” the controversial Kaepernick apparently didn’t do enough to earn a job.

Davis didn’t appear in a game for the Denver Broncos last season. He played three games, starting two of them, for the Cleveland Browns in 2015 and completed 59.6 percent of his passes with one touchdown and three interceptions.

Davis’ only other NFL action came in 2014, when he started eight games and made 10 appearances for the St. Louis Rams. He completed 63.4 percent of his passes with 12 touchdowns and nine interceptions that season.

Davis will compete with Trevone Boykin to serve as Russell Wilson’s backup.
