Tarvaris Jackson will return to the Seattle Seahawks on a one-year deal, according to a report from 710 ESPN in Seattle, after being released by the Buffalo Bills earlier in the offseason. Jackson spent the 2011 season as the starting quarterback for Seattle, but was traded to Buffalo prior to last season for a seventh-round pick.
Jackson won't be the starter in Seattle this time around, as Russell Wilson has cemented himself pretty solidly in that role, but this should be a better opportunity for Jackson this time around now that the Seahawks traded fellow quarterback Matt Flynn to the Oakland Raiders.
It'll be interesting to see how Jackson responds to being a backup this time around, as he's been inconsistently used thus far in his NFL career. He played in just one game last year with the Bills after starting 14 games a year prior with the Seahawks. He also made 20 starts during his first five years in the league, all with Minnesota.
The 30-year-old quarterback has a career 59.4 completion percentage and 38 touchdowns compared to 35 interceptions.
