Tarvaris Jackson QB SEA 1 week ago

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.

The Seahawks are expected to sign free agent QB Tarvaris Jackson to a one-year contract.

Citing two sources, ESPN's John Clayton reports free agent Tarvaris Jackson will head to Seattle "in the next day or two" to "possibly" sign a contract with the Seahawks.

Clayton writes that "it's not known" how a Jackson signing would affect current Russell Wilson backup Brady Quinn, but we have a pretty good feeling T-Jack would beat out Quinn for the No. 2 job. Jackson was the Seahawks' starter in 2011 and earned the respect of teammates for playing hurt. He'd be an excellent addition as a backup and is very familiar with OC Darrell Bevell.

ESPN's John Clayton reports "it's possible" the Seahawks sign free agent Tarvaris Jackson to back up Russell Wilson.

Clayton might just be guessing - he often does - but is based in Seattle, and it makes sense on paper. Jackson was the Seahawks' primary starter in 2011, and he'd be an upgrade on current backup Brady Quinn. Quinn lacks the talent for any system, but particularly Seattle's burgeoning read-option behemoth.
