The Buffalo Bills have traded a 2nd round pick to the Seattle Seahawks for QB Tarvaris Jackson.
Entering training camp in Seattle, Jackson found himself in a quarterback competition with Matt Flynn (signed for 3 years/ $26 million in the offseason) and rookie QB Russell Wilson (drafted in the 3rd round of the 2012 NFL draft). Jackson quickly found himself on the outside- looking-in of the competition with the surprise emergence of Wilson.
The acquisition Jackson may mean the end for Vince Young who has failed to impress the Bills staff. Jackson will most likely serve as the backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick. While Jackson won’t be in a QB competition with Fitzpatrick, the Bills now have a viable backup for the season.
Jackson may find some extended playing time on Thursday when the Bills wrap up their preseason play against the Lions.
What do you think of the trade? Can Jackson be considered to replace Fitzpatrick if he was to struggle? Is a 2nd round pick too much? Let us know!
