Jackson was arrested Friday on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, stemming from a reported argument with a woman, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson was subsequently released from Osceola (Florida) County Jail after posting $2,500 bond. The 33-year-old QB, who served as Russell Wilson's backup in Seattle over the past three seasons, remains a free agent, with Trevone Boykin and Jake Heaps currently rounding out the Seahawks' signal-caller depth chart behind Wilson.

Jackson (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's regular-season opener against the Rams, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nearly four weeks removed from spraining his ankle, Jackson should be fine to serve as Russell Wilson's backup in Week 1. With only two quarterbacks on their roster, the Seahawks clearly aren't worried.

Jackson was able to throw Tuesday and is considered probable by coach Pete Carroll to be available for the opener against the Rams on Sunday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson has been dealing with a high-ankle sprain over the past few weeks but it appears he's healed up just in time to be Russell Wilson's primary backup Sunday. If Jackson suffers a setback for whatever reason, the Seahawks will have to seriously considered adding another quarterback to their roster with no current third stringer in place at the moment.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson will miss at least two weeks of practice with a high ankle sprain, according to the Bellingham Herald. Jackson is expected to be the primary backup to Russell Wilson this season, but his snaps will be taken by rookie R.J. Archer while he recovers from the injury.

Jackson resigned with the Seahawks on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports 1 reports.

Serving as Russell Wilson's backup in both 2013 and 2014, Jackson was afforded just four appearances, completing 11-of-14 passes for 151 yards and one touchdown versus no interceptions. Expect Jackson to compete with B.J. Daniels and RJ Archer for the gig.

Jackson, who was 5-of-7 passing for 47 yards in Seattle's first preseason game, did not play Friday in the team's second exhibition game against the Chargers.

The Seahawks wanted to see more out of Terrell Pryor and give B.J. Daniels is first taste of action. Daniels has no shot to make the roster, but Pryor could bump Jackson from his backup role. Jackson's steadiness, though, is probably more highly valued over Pryor's potential dual-threat ability.

Seahawks re-signed QB Tarvaris Jackson.

T-Jax returns as Russell Wilson's backup. Going on 31, Jackson has attempted only 13 passes since the end of the 2011 season, but has plenty of experience in Pete Carroll's offense. A new deal made sense for both sides.

Profootballtalk reports the Seahawks and free agent Tarvaris Jackson have mutual interest in a new contract.

T-Jax attempted only 13 passes in 2013, but has found a niche as Russell Wilson's backup. Jackson has dialed up over 1,000 career passes, and is still only 31 (in April). A new deal makes sense for both sides.

The Seattle Times considers Tarvaris Jackson the favorite to back up Russell Wilson over Brady Quinn.

As do we. Quinn's draft pedigree is the only reason he's still in the league, while Jackson started 14 games for Seattle and coach Pete Carroll in 2011. Even for a reserve, Quinn is overmatched as an NFL quarterback. T-Jax's skill-set is much more closely aligned with Wilson's.
