The Seattle Seahawks would like to trade one of their quarterbacks.

No, they are not willing to get rid of Matt Flynn, nor are they willing to trade Russell Wilson. But they are willing to trade Tarvaris Jackson.

Jackson signed with the Seahawks in July 2011. He signed a two-year, $8 million dollar deal, which included a $1.5 million signing bonus.

He is on the outside looking in with Flynn expected to get his second straight preseason start. The Seahawks may be able to get a late-round pick for Jackson.

Should the Seahawks not be able to find a suitor, he would be released. Teams may bulk at his $4 million salary for this season.
