The Bills cut quarterback Tarvaris Jackson yesterday. Jackson was signed by John Idzik's Seahawks a few years back, and his position coach in Buffalo last year was David Lee so some speculated he might come to the Jets. A few writer claimed Idzik was a Jackson fan. Kimberly Martin says this is apparently not the case.
In other non-Tebow/QB news...was told Tarvaris Jackson won't be coming to the #Jets. #nyj— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) June 11, 2013
As I said about Jackson a few months back, his game has all of the production of a game manager and all of the turnovers of a gunsligner. He will not be a great loss.
Given where we are, signing Jackson would not have been the worst move in the world. He's been a touch more productive than Mark Sanchez and a touch less mistake-prone and lacks the baggage in the locker room. He could have made things a tad more competition-y in training camp. Something tells me this franchise will recover from not having Tarvaris Jackson, though.
