As has been earlier discussed, Tarvaris Jackson is apparently on the trade block after being the first one down in the three-headed quarterback competition in Seahawks camp with Matt Flynn and Russell Wilson. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, who has a reputation of publishing one unconfirmed rumor as fact, said there are several teams in the mix, but a deal could depend on someone else getting injured.
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.
Complicating matters is the fact that Jackson is due to earn a base salary of $4 million in 2012, a number that teams may not want to devote to the quarterback position.
Florio has many times been right with his single-sourced stories — though it's notable that the infinitely more reliable Jason La Canfora of CBS is also reporting the desire to trade Jackson (though he's also been wrong at times too) -- so take this with a grain of salt. Jackson didn't see any snaps in the first preseason game last week, and isn't expected to this weekend.
