Reports: Tarvaris Jackson to sign with Seahawks
|07.26.11 at 6:53 pm ET|
According to several reports, Tarvaris Jackson will sign with the Seahawks and compete with Charlie Whitehurst for the starting quarterback job in Seattle. The announcement confirms several rumors from the last few days of the lockout, and comes shortly after the Seahawks decided they would not re-sign veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.
Jackson will be reunited with former Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. The 28-year-old has started only 20 games in his five-year career, and spent the last two seasons behind Brett Favre on Minnesota’s depth chart.
Jackson will reportedly arrive in Seattle Tuesday night, and sign his new contract (the details of which have not been released) on Friday.
