Tarvaris Jackson re-signs with the Seahawks

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Seahawks backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has re-signed with the club for the 2014 season. He'll make a fully guaranteed $1.25M, plus have up to $750k in play-time incentives. With Jackson's salary fully guaranteed, it's most likely he's not just a hedge for B.J. Daniels and the Draft, and it seems likely Jackson will remain the primary backup to Russell Wilson when it's all said and done. The competition will be on -- it always is -- but Jackson is one of the league's better backup quarterback options, particularly for Seattle.

Jackson has played in Darrell Bevell's offense for his entire career, and in three game appearances for Seattle in 2013, had a hilariously awesome rating of 140.2 while completing 10 of his 13 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown. His preseason line wasn't too shabby either, as he completed 26 of his 36 passes for 357 yards, three touchdowns and a 131.4 passer rating. He stayed true to Pete Carroll's system by not turning the ball over.

Further, he is loved and appreciated by the fans here in Seattle for his play in '11 as he fought through a torn pectoral. While they'll most likely see what they can get from Daniels at the spot, Jackson's ability to run the offense relatively efficiently, while it could really only be appreciated if Wilson got hurt, is a valuable enough commodity to pay a little more at a valuable position. Jackson made $840k against the cap last year.

When asked about re-signing with the Hawks last week, Jackson had replied, "It's a possibility. I know there is some interest there on both sides. Just the way it ended (last season), I would think so but I know it's a business. I know there are other guys they are obligated to trying to get (signed to new contracts), but I'd love to go back. I understand that at the same time, I might have to move on. We'll see. Obviously, you'd like to have the opportunity to go (somewhere and) start and be a starter and play, but at the same time, it's a good situation in Seattle. I'd rather stay than keep moving around and bouncing around."
