The Seahawks have signed QB Tarvaris Jackson.  He returns to the Emerald City after spending 2012 on the sidelines in Buffalo.  In Seattle, Jackson will battle Brady Quinn for the #2 QB job behind Russell Wilson.  We like Jackson's odds of winning that job since he's a better fit in the Seahawks' offense.  Of course, T-Jax has no place on fantasy rosters.

The Bills have released QB Tarvaris Jackson.  It's just a housekeeping move by the Bills, who had no need for T-Jax after adding QB E.J. Manuel in the 1st round of April's draft.  Manuel and Kevin Kolb are set to duke it out for the starting job this summer.  Kolb's experience could give him the edge to be under center for Week 1, but we're betting on Manuel starting more games this year.  The rookie needs refinement and will be working with a largely unproven supporting cast, but his rushing ability could give him spot-starter value right out of the gate.

The Bills have announced that they re-signed Tarvaris Jackson and that he'll have an open competition with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job. That should certainly solve any QB issues holding Buffalo down. On the other hand, the city can get pretty cold. Maybe it just takes 2 guys to keep the seat warm for Ryan Nassib.

The Seahawks have traded QB Tarvaris Jackson to the Bills.  T-Jax fell to 3rd on Seattle's depth chart and had been on the trade block for a while.  The Bills came calling after being disappointed with both Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen in training camp and preseason action.  Jackson will likely be the team's backup QB this year, but he's not a threat to Ryan Fitzpatrick's starting job.

ESPN's John Clayton reports that Tarvaris Jackson will be the first QB up when training camp opens. That doesn't necessarily put him in the lead in the starter competition, but word is that Matt Flynn hasn't blown anyone away yet. That's not a surprise. The public probably overrated him quite a bit based on just 2 starts in place of Aaron Rodgers. Flynn is a former 7th-round pick who lingered on the open market this offseason. He still seems like the favorite in Seattle, but the Seahawks also seem to be gearing up for a true competition. Pete Carroll has said that even rookie Russell Wilson is in the mix. It'll be one of the league's more interesting camp battles.

Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral) put in a full practice on Thursday.  It looks like he's completely over that injury that's plagued him over the past couple weeks.  T-Jax will start this Sunday but isn't a recommended fantasy option against a tough Ravens defense.

Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral) is active and will start today against the Cowboys. Even with WR Sidney Rice in the starting lineup, TJax is just a mediocre QB2.

HC Pete Carroll says that QB Tarvaris Jackson is struggling to get through practice because of the pain from his pectoral injury. The QB did complete Friday's practice, though, and is listed as probable. Expect him to start for Seattle -- or at least provide the same kind of goofy delayed start he did last week.

Updating a previous item, Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral) is now expected to start Sunday's game against the Bengals.  He put in a full practice on Friday.  "Tarvaris had his best day in the last couple of weeks," HC Pete Carroll said afterwards. "He just started to come out of it, and threw the ball well."  T-Jax is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision.  But all the Seahawks insiders expect him to start.  Jackson isn't a fantasy option, especially at less than 100%.  But his return is good news for WR Sidney Rice.

Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral) took 1st-team reps during Wednesday's walkthrough.  T-Jax and Charlie Whitehurst will split 1st-team reps in practice.  Seattle wants to keep Whitehurst prepared, but it looks like Jackson will be back for Sunday's game against the Bengals.  He's a weak fantasy option, but his return will be good news for WR Sidney Rice.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll believes QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral) will be back for this coming week's game against the Bengals.  T-Jax reportedly threw the ball well in pregame warmups yesterday.  He won't be a strong fantasy option, but Jackson's return will be good news for Seattle's passing attack.  QB Charlie Whitehurst was brutal on Sunday, completing just 12 of 30 passes fo 97 yards.

Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral) was limited in practice again on Thursday, while QB Charlie Whitehurst took all the 1st-team reps.  "We just haven't had him throw the ball hard yet," HC Pete Carroll admitted.  "We may go all the way to game time to understand whether he'll be available to us."  All signs continue to point towards Whitehurst starting against the Browns on Sunday.

Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral) was officially limited in Wednesday's practice, but it doesn't sound like he did much.  QB Charlie Whitehurst took all the 1st-team reps and is likely to start Sunday's game against the Browns.  He won't be a fantasy option, but we also wouldn't consider it much of a downgrade for Seattle's pass-catchers.
