Tarvaris Jackson's New Contract Reportedly Completes Trade To Bills

The deal that sent Tarvaris Jackson to be Ryan Fitzpatrick's backup in Buffalo is now official, now that Jackson has reached a contract agreement with the Bills.

Jackson was set to earn $4 million with the Seahawks, but was reportedly open to tweaking his salary if he found another team to play for. After a position battle in Seattle left Jackson the likely third-stringer, Jackson will now be the backup should anything happen to Fitzpatrick.

This is awful news for Vince Young: with Jackson potentially earning $3 million, the Bills likely won't want to pay Young a $1.25 million bonus for making the roster, especially since he'll be a third-stringer. So Jackson will take Young's spot on the depth chart as well as the money the team was slated to pay Young.
