Posted by Bills Daily Charge on August 28, 2012 – 9:47 am


–The Buffalo Bills announced yesterday that the team has acquired QB Tarvaris Jackson from the Seattle Seahawks for an undisclosed draft choice. Jackson started 14-of-15 games played for Seattle in 2011 and set career-highs in attempts (450), completions (271), passing yards (3,091) and passing touchdowns (14). Jackson is entering his seventh season in the NFL after originally being drafted by Minnesota in the second-round (64th overall) of the 2006 Draft. The 6-2, 225-poound Alabama State product has started 34-of-51 career games, totaling 7,075 yards on 625-of-1,053 passing with 38 touchdowns and 35 interceptions along with 643 rushing yards on 159 attempts and five touchdowns. The team also announced that it released QB Vince Young.

Bills General Manager Buddy Nix
On Jackson’s strengths as a quarterback:
“He is a strong armed guy, a good athlete. He has played well, like I said at times. He throws the deep ball well. A big, strong guy that we think can, athletically, do what we need to do.”


Newly acquired QB Tarvaris Jackson participated in individual drills during yesterday’s practice at One Bills Drive.
