Bills in talks to acquire Seahawks QB Jackson
It would become the latest blow to Young’s once-promising career. After leading Texas to win the national championship in 2006, Young was selected third overall in the draft by the Tennessee Titans and eventually went on to earn NFL offensive rookie of the year honors.
He’s 17-17 as a starter, with 38 touchdowns and 35 interceptions in 51 career games.
Selected in the second round of the 2006 draft by Minnesota, Jackson had an up-and-down five-year career with the Vikings. His most productive season came in 2007, when he started 12 games.
Jackson signed a two-year contract with the Seahawks last year, and was credited for playing a major role in the team’s turnaround after a 2-6 start. He posted career numbers in completions (271), attempts (450), 3,091 yards passing with 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
Jackson also earned plenty of support among his teammates after playing most of the season with a painful pectoral injury.
Jackson has had his faults, with much of the criticism focusing in on his decision-making and holding onto the ball too long.
There were also times he faltered in the fourth quarter _ including late-season home losses to Washington and San Francisco _ which contributed to costing the Seahawks a shot at playoff berth.
