Report: Seahawks expected to sign Tarvaris Jackson

When the Bills released Tarvaris Jackson on Monday, the immediate reaction was, hey, he would make a lot of sense back in Seattle. Then a day later came news that Jackson would indeed visit Seattle, and considering how well the Seahawks already know the quarterback, who was the starter here in 2011, that he was brought in showed that Seattle was serious about Jackson.

Now, it appears a deal will be done to bring Jackson in to compete for the backup job. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday morning that Jackson is expected to sign a one-year deal with Seattle.

That’s a move that not only will potentially upgrade the Seahawks at backup quarterback, but that will also go over very well in the locker room. Jackson was well thought of enough to be named Seattle’s offensive captain not long after joining the team in 2011, and he earned tremendous respect from his teammates when he played most of the season with a partially torn pectoral muscle.

The Seahawks have the second practice of a mandatory minicamp this afternoon, so we should have more on this later in the day.
