The Seahawks reportedly traded quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to the Bills.

The Seattle Seahawks have traded quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to the Buffalo Bills, according to a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The deal is not yet official but should be finalized "soon", according to the report.

Jackson was part of the Seahawks quarterback competition, but no one thought he would beat out Matt Flynn or Russell Wilson. It's no surprise that he's been traded, as previous reports have suggested that the Seahawks would strongly consider dealing him.

Jackson joins the Buffalo Bills who have starter Ryan Fitzpatrick. Jackson will now compete with the team's backups: Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen.

Chan Gailey is an interesting offensive mind, and could get some use out of Jackson.
