Good morning, and happy Seahawks Blue Friday. Here’s a look at what’s “out there” about the Seahawks for today, June 14 – one day after the team wrapped up the final day of their three-day minicamp that officially brought an end to their Offseason Program.
Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has agreed to terms with the club and will come in to compete with Brady Quinn for the backup spot behind entrenched starter Russell Wilson. Jackson was with the Seahawks during the 2011 season when he led the team to a 7-7 record as a starter. He threw for 3,091 yards, 14 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions while playing most of the year with a torn pectoral muscle. On Jackson’s addition, head coach Pete Carroll said, “I think it’s a great boost for us in a competitive sense. We thought of Tarvaris as a tremendously tough football player and competitive kid that battled for us.”
