                       === Jackson returns to Seattle ===
 
 Renton,  WA  (Sports Network) -  The Seattle Seahawks and quarterback Tarvaris
 Jackson have agreed to a contract.
 
 Jackson started 14 games for the Seahawks during the 2011 season and threw for
 a career-high 3,091 yards with 14 touchdowns.
 
 The  Seahawks  traded Jackson to  Buffalo for  a seventh-round draft pick last
 summer  after  Russell Wilson's emergence in  training camp and the free agent
 acquisition of Matt Flynn.
 
 Jackson  did not see action for the Bills last season and was released earlier
 this  week with the recently signed Kevin Kolb and first-round draft pick E.J.
 Manuel expected to be Buffalo's top quarterbacks.
 
 With  Wilson  now the  starter for  Seattle and  Flynn now  in Oakland after a
 trade,  Jackson  will likely compete with  Brady Quinn for the backup position
 with the Seahawks.
 
 Prior  to  joining Seattle  in 2011,  Jackson spent his  first five seasons in
 Minnesota, where he passed for 3,984 yards and 24 touchdowns over 36 games and
 20 starts.
