2011 NFL Free Agents: Seattle Seahawks Still Looking At Tarvaris Jackson

The Seattle Seahawks are still weighing their options at quarterback, and Tarvaris Jackson's name continues to come up. With Matt Hasselbeck's status uncertain -- he's weighing his free agency options now -- the Seahawks are looking for some kind of clarity at quarterback, be it through free agency or a trade. While a signing may not be imminent, that hasn't stopped the free agency rumors from heating up.

The Jackson to Seattle rumors are still swirling, with Sports Illustrated saying he's expected to be Matt Hasselbeck's replacement for the Seahawks.

The Vikings' starter in 2007 (he threw for 1,911 yards, nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions), Jackson was used sparingly over the last two seasons as Brett Favre's backup. Now he is expected to replace Matt Hasselbeck in Seattle. Jackson, 28, played under new Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell in Minnesota, so he is familiar with the system and should be able to immediately lead the offense.

The rumor passes the smell test and would seem to fit the Seahawks philosophy. With Darrell Bevell taking over at the offensive coordinator spot, the Seahawks are expected to feature the run game even more this season, and seem to be looking for a mobile quarterback, at least as a stop-gap solution.

Jackson could also be reunited with Sidney Rice, who is a rumored target of the Seahawks. While it appears Seattle is busy in the free agency market -- and has plenty of money to spend -- no moves have been made as of yet.
