No Charges For Tarvaris Jackson

Free agent quarterback Tarvaris Jackson will not be prosecuted following an alleged dispute with his wife in June, according to TMZ Sports. Jackson, 33, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he was said to have pointed a loaded gun at his wife. For his part, Jackson told police that his wife had threatened to stab him with a knife. Tarvaris Jackson

Earlier this offseason, there was talk of the Seahawks re-signing Jackson, but Seattle seems to have moved on. In late April, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider indicated that they were still in talks with Jackson about a return. However, that was before they inked former TCU signal caller Trevone Boykin and ex-BYU QB Jake Heaps. Last year, Jackson appeared in four games for the Seahawks and completed four of six passes.

In other Seahawks news, defensive end Chris Clemons informed the team that he is retiring last week. Seattle also extended coach Pete Carroll through 2019.

  1. Jackson is done, he’s not good enough to overcome this. If teams aren’t giving Ray Rice another chance, no way Jackson gets one.

    What his wife allegedly said was priceless. She said if you pull that you better be more accurate than you were on the football
