This year’s class of rookies have impressed at the OTAs of the Seattle Seahawks. Many are fighting for a spot on the final roster, so it is time to consider which veterans on the team are liable to be cut to make way for these impressive rookies. For me, one guy that stands out is backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson. Jackson signed a one year, $1.25 million contract this offseason, so should he get cut, the cap hit the Seahawks would have to absorb is the full $1.25 million. It is a bit of money to burn, because every million counts in keeping a Super Bowl caliber team together, but the quarterbacks behind him are impressing coaches and writers alike. Terry Blount of ESPN.com pointed to B.J. Daniels as one of the young players who impressed him this week. As he reported, Daniels did not get a lot of time running the offense, but the one offensive drive he did lead ended with a touchdown. He made several accurate throws and got high fives all around from teammates. The Seahawks took Daniels from the 49ers, and the man out of USF is one of those sleepers who could sneak onto the team. The Seahawks didn’t claim Daniels off waivers from San Francisco last year just to spite their rival. Daniels has some talent and could be a future backup. Undrafted rookie Keith Price could help unseat Jackson from his backup role, too. Price has thrown some nice passes this summer, and being a hometown kid, you know there are plenty of fans already rooting for him to make the team. Price surely has a longer road ahead until he becomes a backup in the NFL, but his career numbers at Washington are impressive. But the guy who could certainly swipe the backup spot from Tarvaris Jackson is Terrelle Pryor. The Seattle Seahawks got Pryor in exchange for a seventh round pick, and initially it was believed by many that Pryor could convert to a receiver or tight end. So far in this offseason, however, Pryor has stayed at quarterback and looking good to the coaching staff. Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reported offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell praising Pryor’s work ethic. Bevell said, “He’s been able to rip right through it. He’s picking up the offense really well. Out here, he’s executing pretty well for us.” If Pryor is spending his time at quarterback and already picking up the offense, why can’t he take Jackson’s spot as backup? With all these young guns behind him, Tarvaris Jackson had better watch out. The post Seattle Seahawks: Could Tarvaris Jackson get cut? appeared first on isportsweb.
