Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson now languishes in Buffalo, twiddling his thumbs as he thinks of happier times.
He was Seattle's starting QB just last year. Then they unceremoniously dumped him to the curb when they drafted Russel Wilson and picked up free agent Matt Flynn. “It’s been a different season for me,” Jackson told Sal Maiorana of the Democrat and Chronicle.
“It’s frustrating, but I understand the league, I understand how coaches are,” he said .
He's frustrated, and rightly so, but we're sure the blow has been softened to the degree of the $3 Million he's earning to ride the pine for the Bills.
“It’s a cutthroat league and there really isn’t any loyalty, so it wasn’t like it was a big shock or anything like that.”
The second round pick out of Alabama State was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings and has alternated between starter and backup his entire career. He knows the business all too well, and might just be with another team next year.
