Brooks: Sherman vs. Peterson
It's hard to imagine that the Seahawks would host Jackson unless they were ready to get a contract done. They know all about him after he started 14 games under Carroll in 2011. Jackson also knows the situation; he quickly lost a three-way battle with Russell Wilson and Matt Flynn during last offseason.
One year later, both Jackson and Seattle are in different places. Jackson knows he's not going to have a chance to start anywhere else. The Seahawks know they have a franchise quarterback in Wilson, and they are looking for a veteran backup.
