The Buffalo Bills will acquire quarterback Tarvaris Jackson from the Seattle Seahawks in a trade for an undisclosed draft pick, ESPN.com reported Sunday, based on sources.
The Bills are attempting to finalize a new contract with Jackson, according to the report.
Neither team has confirmed the trade, but the fact that Seattle would trade Jackson is not surprising.
Although Jackson was the Seahawks starting quarterback last season, Matt Flynn, who was signed as a free agent in the offseason, and rookie Russell Wilson have received virtually all the playing time in the preseason.
Jackson was 3-for-5 for 1 yard in Saturday's game.
While starting 14 games for Seattle in 2011, Jackson completed 60.2 percent of his passes with 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
The acquisition of Jackson may mean Vince Young's brief stay with the Bills will end. It may also leave Tyler Thigpen's position on the team vulnerable.
Ryan Fitzpatrick has been the team's starting quarterback, and team officials have said in the past they plan to keep Brad Smith as the team's third quarterback.
