Report: Tarvaris Jackson to be traded to Buffalo

Tarvaris Jackson will be traded to the Buffalo Bills, according to a report from Ian Rapoport of the league's official Web site.

No terms of the trade were announced.

The departure of Jackson would not constitute a surprise. While coach Pete Carroll maintained that he was still part of the consideration at quarterback, he had taken a back seat to Russell Wilson and Tarvaris Jackson in terms of practice time and been the subject of multiple trade rumors.

The deal would also signify something else for Seattle: Matt Flynn's elbow injury -- which kept him from playing Friday in Kansas City -- must not be considered serious. There's no way the Seahawks would trade Jackson if there was significant uncertainty about Flynn's availability this season.
