Former Seahawk Tarvaris Jackson will not face charges stemming from a June incident. according to a report from TMZ Sports.
Former Seahawk quarterback Tarvaris Jackson won’t be charged in connection with a June incident in which he was arrested for pulling a gun on a woman reported to be his wife, according to a report from TMZ Sports.
The TMZ report quotes a Florida Assistant State Attorney stating: “From the investigation which has been made, it is the opinion of the writer that this case is not suitable for prosecution.”
Jackson was Seattle’s starter in 2011 and then the backup the last three seasons. He had not re-signed with the Seahawks at the time of the incident and remains a free agent.
Seattle has been going with rookie Trevone Boykin as the number two QB in training camp with former Skyline High star Jake Heaps as the third-teamer behind Russell Wilson. Speculation is likely to increase that the Seahawks could be interested again in Jackson now that he won’t be charged.
Jackson was arrested in late June and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly pulling a gun on a woman reported to be his wife early during a vacation at a resort in Kissimmee, Fla.
