Orchard Park, NY - The Buffalo Bills today announced that the team has re-signed QB Tarvaris Jackson. In accordance with team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone said, “I spoke with Ryan (Fitzpatrick) and Tarvaris (Jackson) and told them we will have an open competition at the quarterback position – similar to what we will do at all positions on our team heading into our off-season work. I believe that our players will embrace this challenge. We are looking forward to working with our players as we prepare for the 2013 season.”
Jackson was acquired by Buffalo in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks on August 27, 2012 for an undisclosed draft choice. He will enter his eighth 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.
