Tarvaris Jackson expected to sign with Hawks on Thursday

First reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter this morning, quarterback Tarvaris Jackson confirmed via twitter that he's headed to Seattle to sign with his former team on Thursday.

Jackson's expected signing has not been confirmed by the Seahawks. But if true, the seven-year pro certainly bolsters the depth at quarterback, providing someone very familiar with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell's version of the West Coast offense.

Jackson's arrival also will make for an interesting competition for the backup quarterback job behind Russell Wilson, with Brady Quinn not exactly setting the world on fire with his play so far during Seattle's offseason program.
