Brett Rypien's week has been a rollercoaster. After losing big against the Las Vegas Raiders last Sunday as the starter for the injured Matthew Stafford, Rypien was released as the Rams signed veteran QB Carson Wentz earlier this week.
Now, Rypien is packing his bags for the Pacific Northwest and headed back home to Washington to join the Seahawks' practice squad. Rypien is the Seahawks' third QB behind Geno Smith and Drew Lock.
Rypien, a native of Spokane, Washington, is the nephew of former Super Bowl champion QB, Mark Rypien.
This season, Rypien played in two games including the start last week where he led the Rams in a 30-6 loss against the Raiders. Rypien formerly played three seasons with the Broncos, with new Seattle teammate Lock.
Rypien doesn't have much game play, appearing in eight games with three starts completing 98 of 168 passes for 950 yards, four TDs, and nine INTs.
