It's usually an athlete's dream to one day play for their hometown team. Quarterback Jacob Eason got to briefly experience that feeling when he played for the Seattle Seahawks this preseason, only to be cut ahead of Tuesday's 53-man deadline.

While Eason has since signed to the Carolina Panthers practice squad, he isn't quite done reflecting on his time with the Seahawks. The 24-year-old QB tweeted out that he's thankful to the organization "for letting a hometown kid live out his dreams."

Even if Eason's stint lasted less than a year, he clearly won't forget his time with the Seahawks. Unfortunately, it wasn't that memorable for fans. The former Indianapolis Colts fourth-round pick completed 19-of-39 passing attempts for 148 yards and an interception.

It'll be interesting to see if Eason can move up Carolina's depth chart. With both Sam Darnold and Matt Corral on the injured reserve, P.J. Walker is now Baker Mayfield's backup QB. Considering how pedestrian Walker looked last season, Eason could move up the ranks by impressing coaches at practice.

Eason is still young enough to turn things around. He showed some potential by throwing for over 5,500 yards and 39 touchdowns over two full collegiate campaigns, so time will tell if he can start putting things together at the NFL level.

The important thing is that Eason seems to have a good worth ethic. If he can maintain that mindset and prove his worth, a QB-hungry team may very well give him a shot.
