A person familiar with discussions has told The Associated Press that the Buffalo Bills have tentatively agreed to acquire quarterback Tarvaris Jackson in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks.
''It's close,'' the person said Sunday, speaking on the condition of anonymity because neither team has announced the trade. The Bills are in talks with Jackson's agent to restructure the final year of the player's contract. He's scheduled to make $4 million this season.
Jackson's future was in question with the Seahawks, after the team acquired Matt Flynn in free agency this offseason, and after using a third-round pick to draft Russell Wilson in April.
The Bills' interest in Jackson potentially spells trouble for Vince Young in his bid to win the backup job in Buffalo.
