Bills release QB Tarvaris Jackson
Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson apparently thought he was going to compete for playing time, but instead he has been released by the Bills.
Jackson was used as an insurance policy for starter Ryan Fitzpatrick last season, but he never actually got into a game. Instead, Fitzpatrick helped the team to a 6-10 season (not surprisingly, he’s no longer around), and Tyler Thigpen was the other quarterback to get a little playing time. No matter. I still ranked Jackson as the eighth-best backup in the league.
Even though he recently had signed a deal that gave him a $500,000 signing bonus, that’s obviously not happening anymore.
“[The] first thing I thought about when [offensive coordinator Nathaniel] Hackett talked about the up-tempo offense is it’s something that we did in Seattle,” Jackson said in April before the draft. “[Playing up-tempo] was one of the things we did pretty well, so I’m familiar with it and I’m kind of excited about it.”
“This is something I did in Seattle and we were kind of successful with it. We were able to move the ball and put points on the board, and now I get to do it again, hopefully.”
Instead, Jackson finds himself without a job.
Still, he’s keeping his sense of humor.
Atleast they spell my name right now.. Lol— Tarvaris Jackson (@7tjackson) June 10, 2013
