Former ASU standout Tarvaris Jackson quarterback is back in Seattle.

After being released by the Buffalo Bills two days ago, the 30-year old has reportedly inked a one-year deal with the Seahawks.

Jackson's all too familiar with the Pacific Northwest. He started 15 games for the Seahawks in the 2011 season, throwing for 3,091 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions while completing 271 of 450 attempts before being dealt to Buffalo for a seventh-round draft pick 10 months ago.

Despite receiving a $500,000 signing bonus the writing was likely on the wall for Jackson in upstate New York when the Bills took Florida State product EJ Manuel with the 16th overall pick in the draft back in April.
