Report: Seahawks seeking to trade Tarvaris Jackson

The Seattle Seahawks are looking to trade veteran quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, reports Profootballtalk.com.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Seahawks are talking to a couple of teams about trading Jackson, and that a deal could happen. But the Seahawks prefer to wait for one or more teams to suffer a quarterback injury during the preseason, which would help them get a better deal in return.

A trade could be difficult because Jackson is set to make $4 million this season. Jackson did not play in the team's first preseason game and head coach Pete Carroll said he will not play in Saturday's game against the Denver Broncos.

Matt Flynn will start and rookie Russell Wilson will back him up.

Jackson, 29, threw for 3,091 yards with 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions last season.
