The Sporting News' Alex Marvez reports the Seahawks "have kept in direct contact" with free agent QB Tarvaris Jackson.
Jackson could be facing a suspension for since-dropped domestic violence charges, but the NFL has declined to comment on the situation. With Trevone Boykin the only option behind ailing starter Russell Wilson (ankle), the Seahawks could need quarterback help soon. Jackson would be the top candidate if he is able to play.

The Seattle Times considers free agent Tarvaris Jackson a fallback option for the Seahawks.

Seattle could have interest in Jackson now that his legal issues are resolved. Trevone Boykin has been the clear No. 2 quarterback, but needs to prove himself in training camp. Boykin can lock down the backup job with a strong preseason.

Domestic violence charges against free agent Tarvaris Jackson have been dropped.

Jackson apparently all but admitted to threatening to shoot his wife, but the state attorney's office believed there wasn't enough evidence for a conviction. Despite skirting the law, Jackson's NFL future is bleak.

Free agent Tarvaris Jackson has pled not guilty in his domestic violence case.

Jackson has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Jackson sought a public defender in the case, claiming he didn't have enough money for a lawyer, but the judge denied his request. At 33, Jackson's playing days are through.

Free agent QB Tarvaris Jackson requested a public defender in his domestic assault case because he said he has no money.

A public defender is normally free of charge, but can cost up to $100. Jackson has earned over $12 million in his 10-year playing career. He says all of it is gone except for his car that's valued around $100K. NFL players blowing their money and being forced to hang around for a paycheck is far too common.

The Seahawks aren’t expected to re-sign free agent Tarvaris Jackson.

Seattle is moving on after Jackson’s recent legal troubles. Jackson is doubtful to sign anywhere until his off-field issues are resolved.
Wed, Jun 29, 2016 07:06:00 PM

Free agent QB Tarvaris Jackson was released from jail on a $2,500 bond.

Jackson is accused of pulling a loaded gun on his wife and threatening to kill her. He has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Jackson was viewed as Seattle's backup plan at quarterback if UDFA rookie Trevone Boykin could not cement himself in the No. 2 role, but this incident likely ended that discussion.

WESH Orlando reports free agent Tarvaris Jackson has been arrested for allegedly threatening his wife with a gun.

According to the police report, Jackson was intoxicated when he pulled a loaded gun on his wife and threatened to kill her. Jackson was visiting family in Kissimmee, Florida when the alleged assault took place. Jackson's children were reportedly asleep during the incident. Obviously no team is going to go near Jackson until his legal affairs are in order.
Fri, Jun 24, 2016 06:17:00 PM

The Seahawks haven’t ruled out re-signing free agent Tarvaris Jackson.

Seattle is Jackson’s only realistic landing spot this late in the offseason. It’s possible the Seahawks move forward with UDFA rookie Trevone Boykin behind Russell Wilson, but Jackson's experience makes him a far safer backup option.
Sat, Jun 4, 2016 09:20:00 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll hopes to re-sign free agent Tarvaris Jackson.

"We really liked his contributions and he’s been a big factor for us and we would like to have him back if we could,’’ said Carroll. Right now, Phillip Sims is the only quarterback on Seattle's roster besides Russell Wilson. Jackson said he hasn't ruled out re-signing with the Seahawks and there's a good chance he'll be back for his fifth year in Seattle. The Seahawks will probably look for a quarterback in the draft if Jackson signs elsewhere.
Sun, Mar 27, 2016 11:45:00 AM

Free agent Tarvaris Jackson hasn’t ruled out returning to Seattle.

Jackson will test the open market, but could end up behind Russell Wilson for the fourth straight year. Even in a weak quarterback class, Jackson will be limited to backup-caliber offers.
Fri, Mar 4, 2016 06:08:00 PM

ESPN 710 Seattle's Jessamyn McIntyre reports impending free agent QB Tarvaris Jackson will test the open market.

McIntyre reports there was a "strong market" last season for Jackson, who took less money to come back to the Seahawks. Jackson has had several stints as a starter throughout his career, but he has proven to be a backup-level player. He has not started a game since 2011. Going on 33, continuing to hold the clipboard for Russell Wilson will likely be his best available option.
Sat, Feb 13, 2016 10:42:00 AM

Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson (ankle) is expected to be back for the regular season opener.

"He’s making pretty good progress," coach Pete Carroll said. "We’re really shooting for the opener right now at this point with him and think he’ll make that." Jackson suffered a high-ankle sprain in the preseason opener.
Tue, Aug 25, 2015 12:16:00 PM

Tarvaris Jackson has been diagnosed with a high ankle sprain.

They're typically 4-6 week injuries. The Seahawks are left with only R.J. Archer behind Russell Wilson and will likely have to sign another arm to get through camp. Former backup QB B.J. Daniels has converted to wide receiver.
Mon, Aug 17, 2015 04:24:00 PM

Updating a previous item, Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson suffered a sprained ankle in the preseason opener.

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed the ankle was not broken, but conceded "it's going to be a little bit" before Jackson returns. Considering Jackson had to be carted off the field, a sprained ankle is a good result. R.J. Archer will fill in as Russell Wilson's backup while Jackson is down.
