The Seattle Seahawks are one of a handful of teams in the NFL who don’t have to worry about their quarterback situation. With Russell Wilson leading the ship, any questions about the Seahawks quarterback situation are about the backup role, and all questions there appear to have been answered as well.
According to Tom Pelissero from USA Today, the Seahawks have re-signed Jackson to a one-year deal worth over $1 million.
Tarvaris Jackson re-signed with #Seahawks on a fully guaranteed one-year, $1.25M deal. Can make up to $750K in incentives if he plays.

This seems to be the role Jackson has carved out for himself, as he never caught on as a starter in Minnesota, Seattle or Buffalo but has been an adequate backup for Wilson. This may not end all debate about the Seahawks quarterback situation as there could be a discussion about Mark Sanchez if he’s ever cut but he Jets.
New York has yet to cut him, which means they may not end up doing so but if he’s cut loose then Seattle may be an option. Pete Carroll coached Sanchez at USC and could help him revive his career.
For now though, Jackson is the backup and is making some pretty sweet coin to get one of the best seats in the house for Seahawks games.
