The Seahawks signed quarterback Brett Rypien to their practice squad Friday, giving the team a third quarterback behind Geno Smith and Drew Lock.

Defensive tackle Matthew Gotel was released to make room on the practice squad.

Rypien, a Spokane native and the nephew of former Super Bowl champion quarterback Mark Rypien, previously spent time with the Broncos and Rams after going undrafted out of Boise State. 

Rypien appeared in two games for the Rams, starting one, then was waived earlier this week. In three seasons with the Broncos, where he was teammates with Lock, Rypien appeared in eight games, starting three. In his career, Rypien has completed 98 of 168 passes for 950 yards, four touchdowns and nine interceptions.
