SB Nation Studios Examines NFL Preseason Roster Cuts & QB Competitions

The Seattle Seahawks and Head Coach Pete Carroll are still trying to find their starting quarterback as the 2012 preseason winds down. Rookie Russell Wilson has impressed during camp and in preseason time while becoming a fan favorite. He will get the start tonight as the Seahawks take on the Chiefs in their third preseason tuneup.

Matt Flynn was signed to a big contract over the offseason, and as SB Nation's Brad Wells opines, he makes the most financial sense to start. Flynn did not play well last week against the Denver Broncos, completing just 6-of-13 passes. Wilson took center stage as he went 10/17 for 155 yards and two touchdowns.

Incumbent starter Tarvaris Jackson seems to have fallen out of favor and, later in the video, Wells examines whether Jackson could be of value in a trade.

Jackson showed some positive signs a year ago, and another team may be willing to give him a chance. The Seahawks themselves showed how desperate NFL clubs can be in looking for a quarterback when they gave up draft picks for Charlie Whitehurst in 2010.
