9:12am: Jackson has re-signed with the Seahawks on a one-year deal worth a fully guaranteed $1.25MM, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, who tweets that another $750K are available in incentives if Jackson plays.
7:43am: Nothing has been officially announced yet, but backup signal-caller Tarvaris Jackson appears to have re-signed with the Seahawks, according to tweets from the quarterback himself. Late last night, Jackson tweeted, “12’s one more year?! Let’s go!” in reference to Seattle’s 12th man, and added, in a second tweet, “Looking forward to our next journey!”
Jackson, 30, saw action in three regular-season games for the Seahawks in 2013, and even played a few snaps in the team’s Super Bowl win. The former Viking was Seattle’s full-time starter as recently as 2011, before the arrival of Russell Wilson, but has since settled into a backup role, and should be fairly inexpensive again in 2014. Last season, Jackson played on an $840K salary.
With Wilson in place as the starter and B.J. Daniels also on the roster, the Seahawks appear to be set at the quarterback position assuming Jackson’s deal gets finalized.
