It has been reported by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that the Seahawks have agreed to trade quaterback Tarvaris Jackson to the Buffalo Bills for an undisclosed draft pick.  Jackson, who started 14 games last year for the Seahawks, was the odd man out this year in the race to become the team’s starting QB.  With the signing of Matt Flynn and the drafting of Russell Wilson, Jackson would have had to outshine them both in the preseason in order to keep a spot on the team.  However, Wilson has been impressive thus far for the team and Flynn amazed last year when he was given the chance to start.  Thus, Jackson was left in a tough spot and a trade from the team may have been the best thing for him and the team.  The Bills are currently in contract talks with Jackson.  Jackson will now fight for the back up role in Buffalo with Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen, while Ryan Fitzpatrick is slated to be the starter.
