First reported by ESPN's John Clayton, I can confirm that quarterback Tarvaris Jackson is scheduled to visit the Seattle Seahawks this week.
If he re-signs with Seattle, Jackson will compete with Brady Quinn for the backup job behind Russell Wilson.
The seven-year pro was cut by Buffalo on Monday, as the Bills narrowed the competition for the starting quarterback job to veteran Kevin Kolb and first-round draft choice E.J. Manuel.
In his only season with Seattle, Jackson played most of the 2011 season with a torn pectoral muscle, finishing 7-7 as the team’s starter. Jackson also is very familiar with Seattle's offense, having played for offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell for his first five seasons in the league with Minnesota.
