Tarvaris Jackson, the Seahawks’ starting quarterback in his only season with the club, has been released by the Bills, it was announced on the team’s website today.
The Seahawks traded Jackson to the Bills last August, on the same day coach Pete Carroll announced that rookie Russell Wilson had won the Seahawks’ starting job. Jackson did not play last season for the Bills, but was re-signed this offseason.
In 2011, after signing with the Seahawks in free agency, Jackson passed for 3,091 yards and 14 touchdowns. But last summer he lost the starting job to Wilson and the backup job to Matt Flynn, who was signed in free agency last March and traded to the Raiders this offseason.
