Grading Tarvaris Jackson's Fit with These 5 Potential Destinations

The question no longer appears to be if Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson will be traded or released, but when. 

Several media reports, including from ESPN's John Clayton and CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, confirm that Seattle is attempting to move the veteran quarterback before the start of the regular season. 

Clayton reported on Twitter that Jackson "won't play again for the Seahawks," while La Canfora wrote Sunday that Jackson was open to working with his new team to re-structure the $4 million he's owed in 2012. 

La Canfora was the first to report the Seahawks' interest in shopping the quarterback last week. 

Jackson has yet to take a snap this preseason, with free-agent acquisition Matt Flynn and 2012 third-round pick Russell Wilson handling all the quarterbacking duties through two games. The two have obviously shown the Seahawks' brass that they are plenty capable of holding down the position without Jackson around. 

But who will eventually pull the trigger on Jackson? That's a much harder scenario to run through. 

There are teams in need of backup quarterbacks, however, and in the following slides, we grade the fits for Jackson's five best landing spots.
