Bills re-sign Tarvaris Jackson, get ready for QB competition

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Jackson will return to the Bills for the 2013 season, and he'll have the chance to be the team's starting quarterback, according to Doug Marrone.

The Buffalo Bills re-signed quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, and according to new head coach Doug Marrone, Jackson will have an opportunity to win the starting job during the offseason.

"I spoke with Ryan [Fitzpatrick] and Tarvaris and told them we will have an open competition at the quarterback position - similar to what we will do at all positions on our team heading into our offseason work," Marrone said.

Jackson did not see a single snap for Buffalo during the 2012 regular season. He started 14 games in 2011 for the Seattle Seahawks, completing 60.2 percent of his throws for 3,091 yards. Jackson spent the first five years of his career with the Minnesota Vikings, with whom he appeared in 36 games and made 20 starts, including 12 during the 2007 season.
