    Tavaris Jackson to replace the backup disaster that Vince Young was for them. No details on the compensation or reduction to his ($4M...ouch).

    Sorry, I caught that...

    Love these deck chairs on the Titanic type 11th hour moves... Reportedly the Seahawks were looking for a 5th. Amazing what these washout retread guys net. Young made $4M last season. Bills are trying to rework Jackson's deal down from $4M. No wonder QB's claw to hang on in this league. None of them get vet min. deals... JAGS get 7 figures and JAGS who ever showed a heartbeat in the regular season get $3-4M.

    Seattle has agreed to trade QB Tarvaris Jackson to Buffalo for a draft pick, but Bills and Jackson still trying to finalize new contract.

    Man, was Vince Young a bust or what?

    I still think if the Titans take Matt Leinert he's successful.

    This is the same southern crackpot Buffalo GM who unsolicitedly drawled to the media that 'the Patriots don't scare me'.

    That boy, he scared awright.

    Jackson sucks, Young really sucks. It's a fine distinction.

    Maybe the Jets could use him. The QB job there isn't very demanding - all he has to do is prove he can get them into field goal range.

    Vince has tweeted his farewell to Buffalo...

    Jackson's deal will allow him to make "up to $3M", although I assume that would be a worst case playing time scenario. His salary was scheduled to be $4M. Probably less than half that with NLTBE incentives.
