Tarvaris Jackson willing to take pay-cut to facilitate trade

It’s no secret that Tarvaris Jackson’s on the trading block, and the fact he didn’t play again last night only underscores the fact he’s on the way out.

The Seahawks have clearly chosen to move forward with Matt Flynn and Russell Wilson (though maybe not in that order), and Jackson’s unlikely to hang around as an expensive third.

It also appears he’s ready to bend, as Jason LaCanfora of said Jackson’s willing to restructure his contract to take less than the $4 million he’s scheduled to make, if that’s what gets him on his way.

The Seahawks aren’t going to get much for him, knowing anything beyond a fifth-round pick which could possibly move to a fourth depending on performance would be about the max.

It could be far less, and they could end up releasing him.

There’s been speculation linking him to Arizona, but it’s hard to argue that he’s better than what they already have, just different.
