Tarvaris Jackson considered the favorite to back up Russell Wilson

According to The Seatte Times, Tarvaris Jackson is the considered to be the favorite to back up Russell Wilson, which means Brady Quinn will likely be the third-string quarterback.

Wilson appears an emerging superstar and the Seahawks took a big step toward easing concerns over his backup with this week’s signing of 2011 starter Tarvaris Jackson, who will be considered the favorite to beat out Brady Quinn for the No. 2 spot.

At the end of the day, Jackson knows the Seahawks offense well from his time in Seattle before last season and he’s more proven than Quinn.
