Currently the Seattle Seahawks have five quarterbacks: Russell Wilson, Tarvaris Jackson, B.J. Daniels, Terrelle Pryor and Keith Price. As training camp goes on throughout the summer, the coaches will need to make difficult decisions to cut the 90-man roster to 53. Jackson may be one of the players who gets cut. Jackson was the 64th overall pick by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2006 draft. He signed with Seattle as a restricted free agent in 2011 and became the starting quarterback. In his first season with the Seahawks he set career highs in completions (271), attempts (450), yards (3,091), and touchdowns (14). He missed one game after straining a pectoral muscle in his throwing arm. The Seahawks ended the season with a 7-9 record. In 2012, Jackson was traded to the Buffalo Bills, but resigned with the Seahawks for a one year deal less than a year later. Since then, he has been the backup for Wilson where he has proved he can step up when necessary. Last season he played in four games and completed 10 passes out of 13 for 151 yards. He even got a few snaps in the Super Bowl. The 31-year-old veteran signed with the Seahawks for the third time in March with another one year deal. His new contract is $1.25 million with $750,000 available in incentives. Seattle signed Jackson for insurance in case they did not sign a quarterback in the rookie class. Even though Jackson is seven years younger than Peyton Manning, currently the oldest quarterback in the NFL, his career could be over. The Seahawks brought in former Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Seattle gave the Raiders their seventh round pick in exchange for Pryor. They also signed undrafted and fan-favorite local Keith Price. [Seattle Seahawks: Undrafted rookies who will make the team] Pryor completed 57.4 percent of his passes last season in Oakland. He had 1,798 yards and seven touchdowns in the 11 games he played. General Manager John Schneider said the 24-year-old is explosive. Wilson agrees. He has mentioned that he sees great things in Pryor. Pryor’s contract with Seattle is $2.75 million with $586,086 guaranteed for four years. I believe Pryor will win the second-string quarterback job. He is a young player who is eager to learn. With Wilson as a mentor, Pryor should be able to fix his biggest problem: turning the ball over. As for Keith Price, I believe he will be the third string quarterback. Last season at the University of Washington he had 21 passing touchdowns, five rushing touchdowns, and a passing completion rate of 66 percent. During his pro day, he completed 43 of 46 throws, including one to Kevin Smith for 65 yards. Jackson has been a great backup for Wilson. Unfortunately for him, the time has come when young quarterbacks are eager to play for the Seattle Seahawks. The biggest issue for him is his age. The Seahawks have salary cap restrictions and do not need to carry five quarterbacks on their 53-man roster. It seems like it is time for the Seahawks to develop younger players such as Pryor and Price who do not have as high of a salary as Jackson.
