Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson skipped voluntary conditioning sessions this week. The conditioning sessions are, as their name says, voluntary and players do frequently skip them to train on their own. However, this is newsworthy because Jackson is in a tight competition to not only retain his starting job, but to stay on the roster. The Seahawks brought two quarterbacks in this offseason to compete with the incumbent Jackson, free agent Matt Flynn and 3rd round rookie Russell Wilson. They gave Flynn a good chunk of cash and they have been talking up the rookie Wilson endlessly this offseason, even comparing him to Drew Brees. Owed 4 million next year, Jackson could easily be cut if he doesn’t look down one of the top 2 spots on the quarterback depth chart. All 3 spots are open for competition and when Pete Carroll chooses the order when the time comes, he’ll look at everything, possibly even whether or not the players attended all of the voluntary team activities.
