Tarvaris to visit Seahawks


Cut by the Bills and $500,000 richer for his four additional months on the roster, quarterback Tarvaris Jackson is free to sign with any team.

His first stop will be with the team that traded him to Buffalo.

John Clayton of ESPN reports that Jackson will visit the Seahawks, and could re-join the team.

Jackson, a second-round pick of the Vikings in 2006, signed with Seattle as a free agent in the days after the 2011 lockout ended.  Installed immediately as the starter, Jackson was supplanted by newcomers Matt Flynn (via free agency) and Russell Wilson (via the draft) in 2012.

Jackson is now available because of a similar development in Buffalo.  Entering the offseason as the team’s only veteran quarterback, Jackson saw the Bills sign Kevin Kolb and draft EJ Manuel.

Jackson could beat out Brady Quinn for the backup job to Wilson, and the Seahawks would then have to decide whether to keep Quinn as the No. 3 man or cut him.

We suppose they always could trade him to Buffalo.

    If a player is no longer on the team, especially after a couple season, please stop putting their news stories in the feed.

    The worst was the Ray Edwards boxing.

    Nobody cares if they aren’t on the team anymore.

    I will gladly accept Tjack back with open arms. The guy went 7-8 as a starter in 2011 as opposed to Brady Qiunn’s 1-7.

    He is also well respected in the locker room.

    Tarvaris took his son to training camp. To meet some of the players and get autographed memorabilila.

    Yep, go back to the Seattle Vikings. That’s makes 100% sense.

    did Buffalo owe Seattle a favor or something?

  6. buzzkillbill says: Jun 11, 2013 9:39 PM

    Bring him on! Knows the system and tough as hell. Not my starter but great back up.
    See ya Brady Q.

    His tremendous work ethic leaves a good impression on his teammates. Even heard Ben Leber talking on KFAN today about how much the Vikings locker room respected him. Not surprised he could be finding is way back on to Seattle’s roster.

    If Wilson goes down, their screwed.

  9. fumblenuts says: Jun 11, 2013 9:45 PM

    If, and a BIG if, Tarvaris Jackson put in the work like a Manning or Russ Wilson he could be a really GOOD QB.

    Nice guy and seemingly a good teammate but please no. Just doesn’t have what it takes.

  11. hendeeze says: Jun 11, 2013 9:55 PM

    who’s the shrimp next to Tavaris? Oh just the guy who is on PED’s.

  12. bigdawgdaddy says: Jun 11, 2013 10:06 PM

    Hey T-Jack on your way to Cheatattle would you stop by my “doctors” office and pick up my new prescriptions ?
    Thanks Bro,

    All the useless QB’s are in the “News” today…

    I suspect the Bills will be hearing from Warren Moon soon.

  15. ottawabrave91 says: Jun 11, 2013 10:17 PM

    Quinn is going back to Notre Dame to take over for Gohlson being kicked off the team. Then to only be drafted by the browns. again

  16. thewarrenmoon says: Jun 11, 2013 10:20 PM

    The guy is a bum and will never start another game. I bet even Quinn can beat him out.

    He’s going to have to go some to prove his worth to John and Pete. I’m sure the memories of December 2011 and especially the last two games are still in their memories. But if he’s improved his game, that will be duly noted. Having a great starter allows the braintrust a great deal of latitude with what they do further back.

  19. taintedsaints2009 says: Jun 11, 2013 11:56 PM

    What strange career this guy has had.

  20. 4thqtrsaint says: Jun 12, 2013 12:35 AM

    If Tebow can get a look, if Jacarcus Russell can get a look, then why not TJack?

  21. kuranda84 says: Jun 12, 2013 1:03 AM

    I think T Jack is a solid backup. Won’t win you tons of games, but didn’t lose us games when he was a starter. The team really respects him as well.

    Sign him up!

  22. themackstrong says: Jun 12, 2013 2:02 AM

    I thought he would beat out Kolb and the rookie would beat him out by mid-season if he stayed. T-Jack is as solid a back up that you will have in NFL. The players here in Seattle all love the guy as well. Quinn will not beat out Jackson especially in Bevell’s offense

  23. bobnelsonjr says: Jun 12, 2013 2:24 AM

    If the vikings had an open and honest QB competition Tarvaris would be their starting QB.

  24. joetoronto says: Jun 12, 2013 4:18 AM

    He was misused by the Bills, just ask Pete “the cheat” Carroll.

  25. whatjusthapped says: Jun 12, 2013 6:35 AM

    I have to admit, I’m impressed that TJack can find even generate interest. Never has a QB gone so far on so little talent.

    Now I can understand his stint at Minnesota, their QB situation was so bad that even TJack looked serviceable and it was Brad “12th Man in the Huddle” Childress calling the shots. But after TJack blew chunks in Seattle, I figured he was finished.

  26. jimmyt says: Jun 12, 2013 6:54 AM

    Might as well sign him. Neither he nor that team of cheats are going anywhere anyway.

    Lynch pretty much took care of that.
