The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms with free agent quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, Dave "Softy" Mahler of 950-KJR in Seattle reports.
Financial terms were not disclosed, and Mahler adds that Jackson is flying to Seattle tonight even though he will not be able to sign a contract until Friday.
Jackson was a second-round pick (64th overall) out of Arkansas State by the Minnesota Vikings in 2006. In 32 career games, including 20 starts, Jackson has completed 354-of-603 (58.7%) pass attempts for 3,984 yards with 24 touchdowns and 22 interceptions for a 76.6 passer rating.
The 28-year-old has added 535 rushing yards and four touchdowns.
Jackson started 12 games in 2007, but has only made six starts over the last three seasons, and just one start in place of Brett Favre during the 2009 and 2010 seasons. Jackson suffered a toe injury in that start and was placed on injured reserve.
