NFL Free Agency 2014: Tarvaris Jackson tweets he is coming back to Seattle


Tarvaris Jackson posted on his Twitter account Wednesday night that he will be returning to the Seahawks in 2014.

Pro Football Talk’s Curtis Crabtree reported that a spokesperson for the Seahawks confirmed that Jackson’s return is expected to happen.

Serving as Russell Wilson’s backup last season, Jackson completed 10 of his 13 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown.

In his eight-year career, he has completed 59.6 percent of his passes for 7,226 yards, 39 touchdowns and 35 interceptions.

Jackson serves as the fourth Seahawk to re-sign with the team after being a free agent this offseason. He joins Michael Bennett, Anthony McCoy and Tony McDaniel as returners thus far.

    Wow SOMEONES staying….

      You do realize that free agency is going along almost exactly as predicted dont you? To be more specific, thus far virtually every player the Hawks have lost were expected to go elsewhere… even Golden Tate. In fact, despite his statement of willingness to take a discount, he was projected as the most likely to be a casualty of free agency. Who didnt “stay” that shocked you? Clemons, and Red Bryant were cut… No way Hawks were gonna pay Giocomanni… Tate is able to command far more than the Hawks were gonna pay(but again… he was a projected loss). That leaves Maragos(not a huge loss), McDonald(would have liked to have kept him but hes not irreplaceable)… oh and they cut Sidney Rice as well. But word is he may re-sign. So… the Hawks “lost” a total of 4 players thus far to free agency… GOOD LORD STOP THE BLEEDING!… even though they really only lost one guy(McDonald) they potentially had in their plans. Let “us” not be dramatic. Losses of players to free agency happens to every team every year…. even the Super Bowl winners. Unlike many though, the core of this team is largely intact. Even taking the cut players into account, they were situational and were not every down players. The only players that fit that bill(every down players) were Tate(again, the Hawks knew he likely would go elsewhere) and Giocomanni. One of the most penalized O lineman in the league, and though the Hawks are thin at O lineman, that is likely to be a main focus in the draft, he is easily replaceable(and likely able to find an upgrade) and the Hawks would never pay him as much as the Jets did.(Schneider and Carroll are smarter than that)
