Bills re-sign Tavaris Jackson, will compete for starting job

The Buffalo Bills announced on Friday that they’ve re-signed quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and he’ll have the opportunity to compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job.

“I spoke with Ryan (Fitzpatrick) and Tarvaris (Jackson) and told them we will have an open competition at the quarterback position – similar to what we will do at all positions on our team heading into our offseason work,” said Bills head coach Doug Marrone, per “I believe that our players will embrace this challenge. We are looking forward to working with our players as we prepare for the 2013 season.”

It will certainly be interesting to see who wins the Bills’ starting quarterback job for next season.  I think they’ll also draft a quarterback and have him compete with Jackson and Fitzpatrick.
