NFL Free Agency: Tarvaris Jackson Replaces Matt Hasselbeck for Seattle Seahawks

Yes, the Seahawks signed Jackson. Could signing Leinart be equally as important?

The rumors of the past week were confirmed yesterday; out went Matt Hasselbeck, in comes Tarvaris Jackson, along with a bucket of mixed feelings among Seahawks fans everywhere.

If the Seahawks are to move on from Hasselbeck, it’s important they build depth and competition at the quarterback spot; construct a floor for the position to stand on instead of throwing Whitehurst alone into the fire, unless Seattle felt he was truly ready.

I’ve talked about Jackson throughout the offseason as a potential target for Seattle, if Hasselbeck were to move on; the fact that Jackson is on his way to Seattle makes the quarterback battle more intriguing.

The Seahawks signed undrafted free agent quarterbacks Josh Portis and Zach Lee on Tuesday, and the third spot in the depth chart still needs to be filled behind Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst.

On the other hand, Seattle presumably has other options; are they making the right move at the quarterback spot?
