The Seattle Seahawks are closing in on trading quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to the Buffalo Bills, according to multiple reports.'s Ian Rapoport first reported via Twitter on Sunday that the trade was almost finalized.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora added that the teams were still working on the details of restructuring Jackson's contract.

It's the second noteworthy move of the day for the Seahawks, who released wide receiver Terrell Owens earlier Sunday as part of the league-mandated roster reductions from 90 to 75 players. It could mean the end of Vince Young's short stay with the Bills after he signed a one-year deal worth up to $3 million this offseason. Young has completed only 25 of 52 pass attempts this preseason, with no touchdowns and two interceptions.
