    The writing is on the wall in Seattle, where Tarvaris Jackson's days as a starting quarterback for the Seahawks are all but over.

    Seattle's front office is "talking to a couple of teams" about trading Jackson, a source with knowledge of the situation told NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Albert Breer on Wednesday.

    ProFootballTalk.com first reported the Jackson trade talks.

    The sticking point is Jackson's $4 million salary, hefty enough to scare potential suitors away. According to the source, Seattle is waiting patiently for the preseason to play itself out, allowing injuries to turn quarterback-needy teams into potential trade partners.

    Coach Pete Carroll has played it safe with Jackson, airlifting him out of the team's three-man quarterback competition, which now becomes a race between probable starter Matt Flynn and rookie Russell Wilson.
