ESPN's John Clayton reiterated on SportsCenter Sunday that Tarvaris Jackson is sure to be released or traded before Week 1.
"Most likely he will be released or traded after the fourth preseason game," Clayton said. Jackson is owed a relatively hefty $4 million, so teams may prefer to wait for him to get cut instead of pulling the trigger on a trade. Some teams that make sense as Jackson landing spots include Green Bay, Philadelphia, and Oakland. Jackson has spent his entire career in West Coast schemes.
