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.
