What liked about Jackson was the fact he never did any trash talking about the Vikings He may not have been the perfect fit but he was a class act as far as that goes. Good Luck Tarvaris. Go Vikings

I can't believe they think this guy is "starter" material. To bad we could have traded him and got something out of him.

Notice the Seahawks didnt take third round tender the Vikes had on Jackson I think Matt Hasseback is still going to play & will be the starter T.J. will be there Backup if anything. Myself I think if Jackson wants to start he would have a better chance with Washington. Go Vikings

Yep. He did make mistakes early on that caused fans to dispute his skills, then later, when he had the chance to show what he learned, he got hurt. I still think he can play, at least he deserves the chance. I wish him the best.

Don't know if Jackson will ever realize his all star talent but he can start in Seattle, San Francisco, Washington and Miami.

#1? Probably not. I'd say he could be a serviceable back-up but then, when I look back at how he backed up Farve by not even watching the game, I have second thoughts. A different location might bring a different attitude.

Is Jackson in, Hasselbeck out for Seahawks?

Posted by Ryan Wilson

There may still be NFL labor uncertainty, but one thing is not in doubt: once the lockout ends, free agency will be a frenzied process as the league furiously preps for the 2011 season.

And from the sound of it, longtime Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck won't be back in Seattle. ESPN's John Clayton doesn't think the Seahawks are interested in paying a starter's salary to a 35-year-old oft-injured QB whose future might be as a backup and mentor.

"I don't know if they'll pay $5 million (per year), I don't know if they'll pay $6 million," Clayton said, according to ESPN 710, "but if there's no offer from Seattle, you take the best offer and it very well could be in Nashville."

As in: the Titans, a destination we wrote about last month. And while we'd expect there will be a market for Hasselbeck, especially to help bring along a young franchise quarterback like, say, Jake Locker, it's something of a surprise to hear that the Seahawks could be keen on Tarvaris Jackson, the former Vikings second-round pick who will be a free agent once the lockout ends.

Clayton says he's "getting the feeling" that Seattle could have serious interest in Jackson. ESPN analyst and former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer also suggested that Jackson could land in Seattle, telling ESPN 710 that, "(Seahawks new offensive coordinator Darrell) Bevell always had an affinity for Tarvaris Jackson. And believe it or not, I think that might be the play here for the Seattle Seahawks -- I think it might be trying to get Tarvaris Jackson from Minnesota. They've always liked him, they liked his starter potential.(Bevell) tried to make it happen for him in Minnesota and that might be the direction they're trying to go."

Dilfer add that "I don't like that plan, but if that's their plan and that's what they're trying to do, then more power to them."

In an interview with the Seattle Times, Jackson admits that he worked well with Bevell in the past.

"We had a pretty good relationship, me and Bev did," Jackson said. "... It seems like a pretty good opportunity. I know the offense. That's a plus. Coach Bevell, he's very familiar with me and I'm very familiar with him. So that's always a plus."

We've written previously that the Seahawks, rumored to have offered a first- and third-round pick for Kevin Kolb earlier this offseason, shouldn't break the bank for an unproven commodity given all their other roster needs. Jackson, like Kolb, is still unproven, but he wouldn't cost nearly as much. And unlike Matt Leinart, who has ties to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll that go back to USC, Jackson doesn't come with baggage.

Worst case: instead of reaching or overspending for a stopgap QB, Seattle just goes with what they have -- Charlie Whitehurst -- and reevaluate things after the season.

I never saw a player that could handle a clipboard as well as Tarvaris could.
Sage Rosenpharts was not as good.

Never know...I'm not a Whitehurst fan. TJ deserves a chance. However, if BEV couldn't couldn't get production from TJ in MN, I doubt if he will in Seattle. BEV may be part of the problem, not the solution.

Your right. Hate to say it but I don't see any quarterback's statistics getting better without Peterson but he has talent and he is better then Whitehurst.

Peterson is why Favre wanted to play in minnesota and why Ponder wants to start.
