Report: Tarvaris Jackson expected to sign one-year deal

Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Seahawks today, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Jackson was waived by the Buffalo Bills on Monday, and it was reported yesterday that he was expected to visit Seattle with the possibility of signing a contract. Russell Wilson, of course, is the unquestioned starter, but the signing muddies the situation for Brady Quinn, who the Seahawks brought in this offseason.

Jackson brings familiarity with the organization. He is widely respected by players for the way he battled through injuries in 2011, his first and only year in Seattle. Jackson started that season and passed for more than 3,000 yards, but he also had close to a 1-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio.

He played in Minnesota two seasons with current Seahawks receivers Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin and also spent four years under offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell in Minnesota. Jackson is more mobile than Quinn and is considered a better fit in Seattle’s scheme than Quinn.

Seattle carried only two quarterbacks on the roster last year — Wilson and Matt Flynn — but it’s unclear if the Seahawks will do the same this season.

The Seahawks have a mini-camp today so check back later in the day for more information.
