Friday links: Jackson to stay as backup?

This time a year ago, one intriguing question facing the Seahawks was who would be the backup QB, with Matt Flynn headed out of town. Seattle then signed Brady Quinn, with every assumption he would do the job, until things changed in June when Tarvaris Jackson was cut by Buffalo and then quickly signed to return with the Seahawks.

Jackson then beat out Quinn, who was cut when Seattle initially decided to go with just two QBs on its active roster (that changed later in the year when the Seahawks signed B.J. Daniels to the active roster for a while, though he ended the year on the practice squad).

Jackson indicated throughout the season that he was happy with his role as backup and wanted to keep playing, and Pro Football Talk reported last night that a source says the Seahawks are equally happy with Jackson and plan to re-sign him as Russell Wilson’s backup for another season — Jackson will be an unrestricted free agent after signing a one-year deal to return.

Daniels has another year on his deal, and as many have expected, it looks as if the Seattle QB corps could be the same in 2014 as it was for most of 2013.
