 Draft Scout Tarvaris Jackson News
06/12/15 - QB Tarvaris Jackson, who wasn't tendered as a UFA by the Seahawks on May 12, re-signed with the team Friday (June 12).
03/04/15 - QB Tarvaris Jackson has been the team's backup the last two years, and did so last year at $1.25 million a season. He turns 32 this year and may not have a lot of other options. Still, Seattle could decide to go with third-year player B.J. Daniels as the backup behind the durable Russell Wilson and try to save a little money.
04/02/14 - QB Tarvaris Jackson was re-signed as an unrestricted free agent by the Seahawks March 14.
06/11/13 - QB Tarvaris Jackson could be headed back to the Seattle Seahawks. The seven-year pro was cut by Buffalo on Monday, as the Bills narrowed the competition for the starting quarterback job to veteran Kevin Kolb and first-round draft choice E.J. Manuel. Jackson re-signed with Buffalo this offseason on a one-year that included a $500,000 signing bonus. First reported by ESPN, a team source confirmed that Jackson had a planned visit to Seattle this week. He entered last season in a three-way competition with Russell Wilson and Matt Flynn for the Seahawks' starting job, but was traded to Buffalo when it was clear he had fallen to third on the depth chart. If re-signed, Jackson likely would compete with Brady Quinn for the backup job to Russell Wilson. In his only season with Seattle, Jackson played most of the 2011 season with a torn pectoral muscle, finishing 7-7 as the team's starter. Jackson also is very familiar with Seattle's offense, having played for offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell for his first five seasons in the league with Minnesota. Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin has an affinity for Jackson because of the success he had with the Alabama State product during his rookie season, leading the Seahawks in receptions two years ago. "He's loved in the locker room because of what he did for us in 2011," Baldwin said. "He fought through injuries, and was able to put his best foot forward out on the field. And like I said, the guys in the locker room love him. And he's got unbelievable knowledge about the game." Baldwin believes there is a possibility that Jackson returns to Seattle. He talked with Jackson on Monday after he was released. "He was a little distraught about the situation," Baldwin said. "But he's got his spirits up. He's just looking for the next opportunity, and hopefully it's with the Seattle Seahawks."
06/10/13 - QB Tarvaris Jackson was released by the Buffalo Bills. Acquired from Seattle during training camp last year, Jackson didn't see any game action in 2012 while serving as Ryan Fitzpatrick's backup. He was expected to compete with free-agent pickup Kevin Kolb until the Bills used a first round pick on EJ Manuel in April. With head coach Doug Marrone praising Manuel's quick development during the offseason program, it became clear Kolb or Jackson was likely to be the odd-man out. Releasing Jackson now gives the eighth-year veteran a better opportunity to hook on with another team to compete for a backup job in training camp than he would have received in Buffalo. Jackson, 30, has played in 51 career games, posting a 77.7 passer rating with 38 touchdowns and 35 interceptions.
